The Fiat 500 Predecesor. — Very fun to drive, you can park it everywere, very economic, good performance for the engine size. Well built, nice appereance inside and outside. Dosn´t look like any normal boring car. Fast in the autobahn, very agile in the city, fun to drive it in a track. Cheap to own it.

Pros: FUN to drive, cheap to use it.

Cons: Large families

Fiat Christine — This car was a half birthday present/half congraulatory present for passing my driving test. Was kinda hoping for something a bit newer, but with 30 odd k mileage, wasn't bad for a grand! Black in colour, and got me from a to b (for a short period of time!). I wish I still had her... my poor Fiat Christine! R.I.P sweet!

Pros: It was black, one of me favourite colours!

Cons: As with the model, handbrake wouldn't hold properly on steep inclines

Bless Her, She's Probably Dead Now — Painfully slow, prone to radiator leakage/failure, handbrake was useless, getting into 5th gear was a nightmare, the bumper looked like it may fall off, the rear wiper did fall off and the front ones went mad. No rubber cover on the accelerator pedal, the passenger seat was broken. Altogether a bit of a lame pony. She never actually broke down once though!

Pros: Economical on fuel, central locking, electric windows, sunroof, surprisingly roomy for a tiny car, simple seat actions (!?)

Cons: Incredibly slow, made some nasty noises, constant radiaor problems, horrible tinny speakers, would not go up hills, fuly rusted underneath, failed 5 MOTS, very expensive to run in the end
