Used 2014 Fiat for Sale
Reviews for 2014 Fiat
Bought Used & 1.5 Months Later,Transmission Issues
When we purchased the car we were not made aware that the 2014 Fiat 500L models had transmission issues. After taking a roadtrip to NM (from TX) 1.5 months after our purchase, we began to have car trouble. We got the car checked out at shop in Santa Fe and they ran a diagnostics test. It turned out that these types of models from 2014 had numerous complaints about the transmission. Once back in TX, the Fiat dealership held the car for over 1 week only to return the car to us in the same condition telling us they couldn't do anything. This is a serious issue with Fiat and the Fiat 500L from the year 2014. This is NOT a CarMax issue. From our research other Fiats are fine, again, to reiterate, this is about the 500L built in 2014.

Saving so much on gas!
The only lifestyle change I needed to make was to have my days planned out and ensure in case of needing it, there is a charging station along the way or at my destination. If you are someone who stays within a certain range of your house you can minimalize your costs even more by always charging at home. There is instant torque which is fun and took a little getting used to but useful. It helps you control your driving habits too by seeing what your range is constantly and how your driving habits change your available range.
- Fuel Economy: Tells you how well your driving so you can make change to maximize your range.
- Seat Comfort: Leather seats, seat warmers
- Styling: you sit high in the car which is cool and it doesn't look like an electric car.
- Cargo Space: Since a smaller car, cargo space is minimal however this can be overcomes with the fold down seats. Costco/Sams Club runs are doable
- Interior Space: Great for 2 averaged size adults, and 2 smaller adults for the back
- Technology and Entertainment: Wish it had a back up camera, however it does have proximity warning which has come in handy.
Cute commuter car!
First, let me say I’ve never owned a car! I’ve always driven trucks and SUVs. When my commute tripled, I decided to trade in my Wrangler for a Fiat. Tons of head room, not as low to the ground as other cars (Hyundai, Honda, Toyota, etc). I’ve only owned/driven it for 4 months, so I can’t speak to repairs, but otherwise it’s not a bad car. It’s tough going up hills (you need a running start!), and since I drive a lot of highway miles I should have gotten a manual, but that’s my only regret. It’s a really cute car. I get compliments all of the time. Perfect if you have long miles. I get about 40 mpg. I was filling up the Wrangler every four days and it cost 2x as much as filling this up every 4 days.
