1998 Fiat Marea 1.8 16 Valve — It may not be the newest car on the road (13.5 years as at November '11), but it still looks good, the 1.8 engine is very responsive and sounds really good. There are a couple of rust spots but nothing massive. The car is really good fun to drive.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The engine!!

Cons: No CD player, still has the original cassette player

Fiat Marea 1.8 Elx Weekend — Good car let down by it's poor reliability and expensive parts, ease to drive on long journeys, plenty of acceleration for safe overtaking, average mpg, interior very plastic, exterior styling is good, handling isn't the best, excellent luggage space, roof bars as standard.

Pros: Good styling, good power for car of this size and type, excellent luggage space.

Cons: Unreliable, expensive parts, handling not bad but not great either

Fiat Marea — Small enough to find parking on European side streets and somewhat cheap to maintain. It's a common car here although they're mostly the 1.6 liter models but the body is the same so parts are very easy to find. The 2.0 20 V 150 HP engine really delivers a kick at higher speeds and it isn't too shabby off the line. It's not a 300 HP engine, but for a lightweight car it's enough. Very stable. I lowered it 2 inches with a sport suspension kit and put a good set of Dunlop tires on it. It has LPG gas installed so I save 50% on gas. The ABS still works. The AC and Auto Climate Control still work too.

Pros: 2.0 20V 150 HP engine

Cons: None. I don't buy cars that have negatives.
