Overall:

The car has a European vibe which is what. I was looking for . A back up camera would have been awesome! I’ll have to drive it a bit more to get acclimated!

2016 FIAT 500 Review
GuruZN48 says:
While looking for a economical vehicle I considered the Fiat (Based upon the EPA economy range). It did deliver good gas mileage and provided a good handling car. It did lack power to be considered a zippy car, but for city ownership it would be a good choose. Small size makes parking easy in the city but interior space is very limited. (Mini Cooper size without the zippy performance of the Mini Cooper). When compared to the Chevy Volt, it would not be my first choice. The handling was very good and small size makes it a city car (But not a family car). If you dont need to occupy the rear seat with another person, it would be OK to own. No driving problems or surprises.

2016 FIAT 500 Abarth Review
MarkMark5 says:
Fun, raw yet somehow refined. Exhaust porn right from the factory... straight pipes... no mufflers. Fully equipped including heated leather seats and fog lights, power everything except seats*, rides like it’s on rails. More intelligent then even Honda in design with Italian elegance. This car will delight with every start up. A few drawbacks: turbo requires expensive tune up every 32K miles (turbo kills these $35 each plugs), requires expensive full synthetic oil every 7K or so, Parelli tires don’t last and, while cool, are pricey - replace with Michelin - longer, stronger, more reliable. Also, recommends premium - should say requires. After using 87 for a while you may experience some difficult start ups. This car will be a few hundred dollars a year to maintain, and a bit more to drive - overall, more expensive monthly. But that’s OK when considering the $5,000 discount you get just for asking, or the $7,000 discount for negotiating. Also, don’t know about longevity of the engine - turbo burns hot.
