I think it’s great cause of the small engine would save on gas especially with the gas prices and even though it’s small I’m comfortable sitting in it lots of leg room and love the red color and black strip and 500 logo very stylish inside n out!

Overall:

We bought this car with one intention, to tow it behind our RV. Its light at just over 2200 lbs with 4 seats. What I didnt expect is how much fun it would be to drive. It needed to be a manual transmission in order to be flat towed. Ours is a 5 speed. It shifts great. Ours is the POP, or base model but is got some options, Bluetooth phone, but not music which is odd. It works well and sound is outstanding. It has a USB input which is qwerky. It also has an aux input and with an adapter I bought, I can play music from my phone. The beats audio option in this car is good. Much better than my Corvette which is a bit of a surprise. The steering wheel mounted Cruise control and phone controls are great. For a little car it it surprisingly comfortable. This one has combination cloth and leather seats. The backseat is tight. Should be good for dog or grandkids. Gas mileage is terrific. There is no spare tire, just a slime refill kit and pump under the drivers seat. I will likely add run flats when it needs tires. Ours is a 2012 with 56K miles on it and still in like new condition except for some hail damage. Paint has held up very well. Steel wheels have some corrosion, I added some new wheel covers. I serviced car after buying it. Parts were easy to find and cheap. The oil filter is difficult to get at, I needed to buy a 27mm socket and wobbler extension to remove the filter. I doubt you would have much luck at Jiffy lube. The car has good pickup and great brakes. The other choices we had were a base Mini, Kia Soul, and Chevy Spark. A good number of these Fiat cars had manual transmission, which we needed to flat tow. It made finding one much easier as there were many to choose from. Parts and service are much less expensive than the Mini. So far Im pretty happy with the car. Its fun to drive and a little odd looking, but its growing on me.

Overall:

I love this car and people are always telling me they like the way it looks. It may appear quite small but once you are sitting in it you realize it is much roomier it actually is. Also, it is really fun to drive and steers like a sportscar. I like it so much I am thinking about buying a newer one. It even has a satellite radio. However, the glove compartment is very small and doesnt lock which is kind of annoying but I have learned to live with it. Also, this car only has 2 doors so the back seat can be hard to get to without somewhat of a struggle. The trunk isnt very big but is much larger when the two back seats are in the down position.

If youre over 6 tall then this car isnt for you. Im 63 and my head was hitting the roof with a manually adjustable seat however other than that its a really fun vehicle to drive. The one we drove was a 2012 with 72,000 miles. The steering response and handling were tight and quick. The motor hummed and transmission shifted great and even better in sport mode. We wouldve bought the car if I wasnt hitting my head on the roof and had to tilt my head in order to drive it.
