Overall:

I wouldve liked a sunroof or for it to be an automatic, but it was priced well and was in good condition. The rear seat area offers minimal leg room, and the drivers seat doesnt recline.

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.

I love this car. It is so easy to drive, steer, maneuver, and maintain. It has good space in the trunk, you have amble visibility in a 360o, and enough leg room. Only two issues that need improvement: bluetooth connection is very outdated, speed after 70mph is sluggish. Definitely a great second car for the city.

I Am Over All Very Pleased With The Car. It Is Responsive, And Fun To Drive — I have owned the Fiat 500 Pop for a year now. I bought it as strictly use as a commuter car. I have put over 28,000 miles on it in that time. Best commuter car ever, 42+ mpg avg. On my last trip to the NC mnts got 45.5 mpg on cruise @ 67mph 600 mile trip. dislike about this car? I drive mostly inter state highway to get to work, It is nice and quite and feels very solid. I don't get blown around when a truck goes by me.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Very economical great MPG, Handles very well, not overly powerful, but it will get you there

Cons: A couple things I don''t care for, the driver's arm rest is a little too short and not wide enough. The head rest restrict your view to the rear., the window controls are in the middle of the console, I keep even after a year, looking for them on the door.

Sporty Cute Convertible. — The absolute only thing I did not like was the ease to get into the back seat. Front seats did move forward enough for a tall person to easily get into the back. Back seats are comfortable but are more for kids and smaller people.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great for commuting. Great gas mileage.

Cons: The only con I have is that is a compact car. So there is not a lot of storage. BUT the back seats do fold down to allow for some hauling of bigger things.

My Awesome Fiat 500 — We like it so much we bought a second for our daughter. It's the next best thing to being in Italy. You won't mistake it for a sports car as it's not the fastest thing on the planet but it is fun to drive and good looking.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: So cute and so fun to drive.  I'm still smiling even after 8 months.  The gas mileage is awesome.  The seats are super comfortable and the standard options are great.

Cons: Not much room although pretty good for such a small car.  It does suffer from a bit of road noise.  Some of the interior parts are fragile, like the arm rest and seat adjusters (plastic).

Great Italian Car — These are such wonderful little cars. They're so much fun to drive. They get great fuel economy and the styling is surprising given the price. Heated leather seats, fixed glass roof, premium Bose audio system with satellite radio. They feel like little luxury cars. Some people don't like tiny cars but if you do then these are perfect!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Wonderful little car.

Cons: Tiny back seat.
