    Thumbs up FIAT grande punto ! the verdict !

    as some of you may recall i have given up the keys to my C , and replaced it with the above ! just thought that you all might like to know how i'm getting on with it so far ! it would be easy to lie at this point ! but i'm going to be honest ! if any of you are looking for a small hatch type car for what ever reason !? then DO try one ! its a superb car ! looks good , its nippy , econimical and spacious ! everything you could want and more from a car this size ! after two weeks i have only three issues that bare mentioning , they are the foot rest next to the clutch is too high ! when you swap from dip to main beam , its almost like you lose the lights for a split second ! and around town the ride is a little firm and lets thunks through into the cabin ! that realy is all i can find ! i may post some piccy's after i've lowered it ! i wish i could have kept my C but i am not at all dissapointed with my little red devil !!

    which engine did you go for? we test drove a 1.4 eleganza for my fiance and it was a little sluggish. if it were my money i'd have gone for the panda 100hp...wicked little car and a very high spec, but alas sophie didn't like it.

    in the end we didn't go for either and she now owns the vectra.

    Not GP, but we used to own a Stilo 1.6 - - what a mistake that was. The poor reliability and dealer / Fiat UK indifference and poor service has put me off Fiats for life.

    Replaced it with the Mazda 6 and it's been brill. Only fault has been a brake light bulb, which took about 25 seconds to change..

    I've had these as Hire cars recently......Gotta say I can't recommend them! Vague beyond belief. No confidence pulling away, Stopping or the steering. But thats my oppinion
