Dont Buy The Base Model. The V6 Ones Are A Lot More Fun — performance: no power at all the 2.5 inline four was pathetic. Build quality: cheap plastic interior so it cracked. Appearance: looked cool and unique Cost of ownership: Needed lots of work at only 70,000 miles not reliable. Fun Factor: Never got to drive it much it was always broken.

Pros: Looks unique

Cons: Base model sucks

Fieros Are Getting Old, And You Need To Know How To Work On Them, Because Things Constantly Wear Out — Fieros are fun to drive because of the handling. They are great on twisty roads. I get 22 mpg, which isn't great, but not bad either. Many owners swap the engine to something more powerful, but mine has the stock 92-hp 4-cylinder engine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Not many on the road, so people often stare and wonder what it is.

Cons: Often breaks down.

I'm A Sports Car Nut With A Limited Budget. I Got This Car Cheap And Would Like To Fix It Up. — Fiero was a great little car, although it was a disappointment when it came to performance. It was underpowered (to my expectations) and didn't handle all that well. All that being said, I wonder if anyone has been able to "juice" theirs up and perhaps even improve the handling with more up to date products?

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Body is in fair-good shape

Cons: Engine needs wo

A Sporty Car That Isn't Exactly A Sports Car.........yet — Honestly i am biased because it is my first car and i basically raised it from the dead, because it is a 26 year old car i am defiantly going to be replacing a lot of the parts but at the moment it's running very smoothly at first it was noisy and the shocks sucked I've been driving it since January 2010 and the shocks are finally loosening up and the exhaust isn't as noisy so i am enjoying it very much since it is lower to the ground and wider than a normal car it can take turns at a faster rate without the G's, it only has a 4 banger in it, i plan on replacing that when i have the play money for it ;P , paint needs replacing (again 26 year old car) but as you can see at a distance it really isn't that bad it looks like crap but hey it's still turning heads down the street

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Easily costomizable all the panel's can come off with relitive ease

Cons: If you are wide, or have a tall torso it will be snug fit, i am 6' 3" and can fit comfortably but i have a friend who is 5' 7" and has trouble getting in cause his torso is longer than mine

Fiero Review — thes were the pace cars for races they are great for driving in the winter as long as the snow isn't too high because they are low to the ground, wide, short, even weight distarbution because of the engine being a centre engine not a front or rear.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: fast and sporty

Cons: hard to get to engine

My Little Death Trap — I bought this beauty Last year and got it running for this summer. The 4-banger is sluggish but looking into it. Tranny is smooth and it sticks to the pavement like glue!! Looking into some rims and still an awsome work in progress.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Handles like nothing iv ever owned

Cons: slower than anything iv ever owned

My '84 Indy Fiero - A Work In Progress — Received my Indy Fiero in Oct '07 and finally got it running last spring. It's fun to drive but still needs to be driven a bit so the tranny loosens up more. Now that it runs, it's time to fix the electrical issues -- radio, trunk release, washer fluid pump, and trunk and front compartment lights don't work. Also need to replace the red decal stripe. But overall it's probably a 5 or 6.

Pros: A fun to drive head-turner.

Cons: Still needs a lot of work, and I'm not much of a gearhead.

Typical 80s interior, not typical of GM reliability of the era (actually, and surprisingly, very reliable), it handles especially well. Like driving on rails is an apt description Read More
