No more car sicknessDrives beautifully, looks gorgeous. I love my car.
I have a short daily commute to work so pretty much costs nothing to run.
Mobile mechanic services it once a year. Only required 1 trip to MB to replace aux battery which my mobile mechanic could have done - I just wanted to drive into a fancy building, one time. Show details

Fiat 500 keyHow is it possible that Fiat dealers want to charge $2,200 for a fiat 500 2014 model for a remote and key.
What a joke. I bought this new with only 1 remote plus spare key.
1 key is worn out. Show details

good carhigh performance car, good handling but a bit noise. I don't really like the interior deco as outdate design.

should have a better design for interior. I spent a lot of money to service in last two year, but now, my warranty almost expire and found gearbox actuator failed, also have engine hard to start problem.
