It's Ok. — eh... It's a car and it gets you from A to B... One good thing about it, for it's age it gives great Gas Mileage. One major thing... It's a Girly/ Grandpa car. But I guess one can see past this... I guess... lol

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great Gas Mileage

Cons: It's a "Girl/ Grandpa" car

1997 Fiat Punto — Performance: Quite Slow, but Nippy, brakes Ok, handles well on the 17" alloys Build Quality: Base model so nothing really to go wrong, all the mods poorly finished Appearence: Not too bad. Rear Bumper full of filler that needed finishing and comicly enormous twin centre exit exhaust Cost Of Ownership: Very Good on Petrol Fun Factor: Fun to drive until the embaressment of the people looking at it and the very loud exhaust

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

Pros: Good MPG, no electrics to go wrong

Cons: Noisy and Slow, Embaresing

The Fiat Punto — This little baby has taken me to all sorts of places with only one major breakdown in it's 5 year history with me. I Love my Goblin! It's reliable, fairly spacious and great value for money. Mine's an orangey bronze that makes it different too

Pros: Reliable, cheap, fun

Cons: Needs more power!

My Gt — Performance - Acceleration is shocking for a punto and is the reason i bought the car, braking is pretty good but a bit inadequate for the speeds the car is capable of, same can be said about the handling. The car is a nightmare in the wet though, on some roads you cant even put your foot down in 3rd without the wheels spining. Build Quality - This is not the reason to buy an old fiat, but not as bad as i was expecting. Apperance - I absolutely love the interior, but alot of people seem to have the opposite opinion, its a bit like marmite. The exterior is nothing to special but its hard to hate, I have to say its grown on me. Cost Of Ownership - Insurance is a bit of a killer being group 14 and the fuel consumption is terrible if you like to drive fast dont expect to see anything over 20mpg but if you can restrain yourself and drive economically it is possible to achive over 30mpg. Fun Factor - The only reason I keep pouring my money down the fuel tank is it is so fun to drive.

Pros: Acceleration

Cons: Grip or lack of

Fix It Again Tomorrow! — I really do love this wee car - when it's working!!! It's had a flat tyre 3 times, a dead battery, broken fog light, new brake discs/pads, and a new timing belt and cylinder head gasket! And I've not had it a year lol. But when it does work, I love it it's my wee car!

Pros: Good looking, cheap and economical

Cons: It's a Fiat!

Fun And Easy To Drive. — Like the review on the V6 of the Mondeo - it's the engine, but also the steering I love about this car. And the way the old Fiat Uno Fire-engine sounds at all revs - but then full-throttle and 6000+ rpm and a quick shift and you feel like a racer, but at a low speed so you don't loose you licens...get real it only got 60 BHP, but who cares? I love it!

Pros: Engine, steering, design

Cons: Brakes (damn they where bad)!
