Terrible buying experience

This car has been a nightmare from the very first month. It has been in the shop 11 times this year. I have had to fight with the dealership constantly to get them to cover all of the various repairs even though my car was still under factory warranty AND I had purchased an extended warranty. CarMax doesn't even service Fiats, so it was a complete waste for me to buy the extended warranty from them - which I only did because the salesman told me that they would waive the deductible if I brought the car to them for service.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: Economical
  • Ride and Handling: It is responsive and smooth
  • Visibility: No blind spots

Cons

  • Cost to Maintain: It is CONSTANTLY in the shop!
  • Safety: It ranks very low on the safest cars list.

Cool Car - People Wave at Ya!

It's a fun little car, with amazing space when you fold the back seat - I've hauled 800 lbs of dirt & rocks, no problem -AND- I had a really good CarMax experience! I walked in with a broken down truck & drove away in a cool little Fiat - in less than an hour, at a price that was fair. And now a couple months later, I'm still happy.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: double my old truck's mileage
  • Interior Space: fold down back seats & you can haul a lot of stuff!
  • Weather Versatility: no slips & slides on rainy days

Cons

  • Visibility: big blind spots - need to adjust your mirrors in unusual ways
  • Technology and Entertainment: my new iPOD doesn't work w/stereo (my classic does)

- Kurt Kessler, 2012 Fiat 500

The overall power is sad but it's fun to drive.

Fuel efficient car for the daily commute. I've done a few long trips with it but it's not really a touring car...at all. If you get one with hub caps take them off. They are expensive to replace and pop off easily on bad roads.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy:
  • Braking:
  • Styling:
