Would Buy Another But With A Much Lower Mileage — accelerates quickly in first 3 gears,will climb hills happily in 5th gear without loosing much acceleration (provided you have no passengers) handles like a dream, and with stiffened suspension on the sports model you can wang it round corners pretty well to... though it can be a bumpy ride. unfortunately doesn't hold its value very well, i'm about to christen 90,000 miles so its probably worth peanuts. the body work is like tin foil, and it only has a 1.5 score on the crash test, which is even less than the saxo. it has a good power to weight ratio, so it does go some despite the small engine because it weighs about as much as a shoe. however beware the dreaded cento clutch cable. it will snap every 20,000 miles (normally while entering a roundabout) so keep a spare in the boot for such occasions... secondly when buying check out the radiator fan. if its seized on avoid, one traffic jam and the little baby will overheat within ten minutes. from the front the cento has a nice leering quite aggresive appearance sporty almost... the back is like a bus's ass though, so reverse park it to avoid embarrasment XD overall, the cento is a fun drive. However i would go for something a little more reliable next time.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great handling, nippy round town

Cons: very unreliable.

Seicento Sporting — I had a 2001 Facelift version, 1.1 MPI 5Spd, low ratio g/box, excellent acceleration, spacious interior, sporty looks, ideal for parking, power steering a real joy, consumption suffered a bit due to the low gear ratios. I miss this car.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Looks, Spacious Interior, Acceleration

Cons: Yellow attracts too many insects.

Little Fiat — Really nippy little motor but I just didn't feel very safe in it! It was quite fun though - Faster to 60 than my new Polo tho!!! It's cute and girly and very very cheap to insure and run! A bit on the small side but will do over 110mph down the A64 if Tim Haney is driving it!

Pros: Cute and nippy!

Cons: Not the safest car in the world!

Its A Car With A Personality, In My Opinion Anyway! — First impressions of the car are that its a cheap and cheerful way of motoring - which it is! Its not the ugliest car out there but its not the greatest looker either, although I do think the styling gives the car a bit of a "personality". The interior is basic but is quite spacious and can fit five (although the fifth is a push if you are quite tall!) The seats are quite comfy and give plenty of room for the passengers to get out the back. The pedals are quite small but not so small your feet fall off them and there is adequate space between them. Dashboard is simple with just the petrol guage and the speedo with a clock and mileometer in the middle. There is no glovebox although there is a large, what can only be described as a hole come shelf in front of the passenger (meaning no airbag). Driver has an air bag although this isnt on all models?!?!!? Performance wise the 1.1S (my model car) is very nippy, mainly thanks to it being light but its also a fuel injected, which gives it that little bit more oomph. I cant comment on the standard tyres as mine as small low-profile tyres which give good grip and doesnt result in any understeer with a bit of a heavy right foot! This car has power steering which is great and allows for easy manouevering when parking/in traffic. Everything is easy to work on under the bonnet as there is bags of space!

Pros: Spacious Interior, good enough handling, nippy and cheap to run

Cons: Obvious lack of safety features, basic interior but you get what you pay for!

Tsoylaei! — Certainly a fun car to drive, very fast for a 1.1, with even acceleration through all gears at all engine speeds. Wheels are sufficient, but very basic, could certainly do with at least decent trims, or better still half-decent alloys. Pedals are OK, although they take a bit of getting used to because they are very small and very close together! Have used car for commuting back and forth work (75 miles per week) and my girlfriends house (270 miles per week), not had any reliability problems at all, even though I'm doing serious mileage for a small city car.

Pros: Excellent for city driving, perfect for those buying their first brand new car
Fun and cheap
A little bit girly, but I'm straight so I don't care

Cons: many electro-problems
