    I Enjoy It, But The Next Person May Hate It, It's All About What You Want Out Of It — Same as above, good for fun, not so much for a family or safety. But it's a great track and or weekend driver. Cost to maintain is low if you have any mechanic ability your self. I would recommend. Thank you

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

    Pros: Everything as far as performance

    Cons: Not anything considering its a track/show car. Not meant for daily driving or cargo room or safety

    My 2nd Fiero...had To Have Another — Great little car, handles great, fun to drive and super quick. I had one in the 80's and had to have another one. They are a bit pricey to fix. It is hard to find one in excellent condition that hasn't been beat to death but they are out there. I found one after looking for a long time. I had to travel out of state to get it but they are out there. I would say if you can get one that isn't going to be a money pit, buy it! They are a blast to drive. Oh yeah, they are like a tank in the snow. Since the weight is over the back tires, this car drives through the deep snow with no problems! Living in Utah, that is a plus!

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

    Pros: Super fast for a little car. Handles great

    Cons: Gas guzzler with the V-6, no storage a bit of a bumpy ride

    Nice Design, Very Nice Interior, And I Good "teen" Car. — I needed a secondary car besides my Corvette-one that runs lol. Knowing myself, I will not settle for a car that is not sporty and doesn't have decent performance. However, I needed something affordable and this seemed to fit the bill. I got this car knowing that it has some minor problems that I listed in the cons. Overall, I don't think that it's the best, but it definitely ain't bad. I'm happy with it. =]

    Pros: I like the design-very creative. It has a v6, it's in great condition, it has a butt-load of interior upgrades, and etc.

    Cons: The engine idles-bad. The cooling fan doesn't run unless I have the A/C on, the E-brake doesn't work, both of the sails need to be replaced, some of the gauges aren't properly working, and one of the fenders needs to be replaced.

    Little Fiero From L.a. — This car is a real head turner. Its got a custom made front bumper designed as compensation for no spoiler. Its painted Millennium Corvette Yellow. The interior is all original with an all professional audio upgrade with a 10" sub where the center console was. It has LED show lights on the inside also.

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

    Pros: Amazing Handling. Very low to the ground so not much chance of rolling.

    Cons: The stock V6 with 135 horsepower is nice and all but I'm ready for something faster.

    Very Fun. Very Responsive. — I realy like this fiero. The GT fastback style is a very sporty look. I also like that i very rarely see another one on the road or even sitting in someone yard. They are a rare car and a challenge. And for a sports car what more do you need for a reason to own one.

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

    Pros: I like the style, the smoothe ride, the great balance, and awesome handling.

    Cons: Finding a good mechanic thats willing to help or even knows how is a big challenge in my area.

    Lots Of Fun And Only Good As A Recreational Driver — Bought as a summer driver to help save fuel. 160 hp doesnt seem like much but when your car only weighs 2700 lbs, its actually pretty quick. has the 282 5-speed muncie getrag transmission in it. not a bad trans but sometime the gears seem too close together and can easily be missed.

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

    Pros: lots of fun to drive

    Cons: no extra space at all. trunk is the size of a suitcase.

    So Much Fun!!!!!!!!! — Great handling. Needs a better engine and trans. Planning on fixing that when I get the chance. Had to fix a few things, but was going to anyway and it keeps me busy and out of trouble. Car looks great. Excellent condition considering the price. Not sure about cost of MPG's and such. Havn't driven it much between fixes. So much fun to drive though.

    Pros: Handles beautifully!!!!!!!

    Cons: No 4th gear. Iron Duke.

    For The Most Part It's An Amazing Part, But When Things Go Wrong I Hope You Can Find Parts — It's a manual, nuff said about acceleration. braking and handling is a dream. it has needed a few repairs but thats mostly just from old age. the car looks and feels great. the only down side is that when they did the paint. they didn't do it properly so my paint is chipping badly. whether it's just mine or not i'm not sure. it's pretty good on gas and you can usually find a fiero for around three grand. over all the car is fun to drive and worth the work for the parts

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

    Pros: it's fun to drive and it's sporty

    Cons: Expensive and hard to find parts

    Review By FCAfanboi

    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

    Small, Fast, Agile Car Built For Fun, Yet Less Expensive Than Foreign Sports Cars! By Richard

    I don't think I've mentioned how safe the Fiero is, but with its wide stance and agile cornering it's not very apt to turn over due to its low center of gravity even at higher speeds. Even though the ... Read More
