The car performs well as long as the operator understands how to use a manual transmission under various driving conditions. It is comfortable, has nice amenities, is a fuel miser, and is easy to maintain. Fuel recommended in a minimum 89. It is not a car designed to be powerful or aggressive. The car is a reliable automobile good for a fun ride or daily commute. Parking and maneuvering is a refreshing breeze!
Decent little car
2013 Fiat 500Preston Wood - San Diego, CA12/10/2016
Needed a car that got good gas mileage and this one sure does. Not very powerful (I even got the turbo model) but still pretty fun to drive. Best feature is probably parking as you can fit it literally anywhere. Great daily driver but don't expect much else.
Quick. so must have been the build time
2013 Fiat 500Doug Arendell - Dallas, TX10/18/2015
Overall quality is under par. I admit I enjoyed driving it. However, ride quality felt rough & plastic panels raddled. Electronics were intermittent ie rear wiper blade would randomly come on. A/c needed serviced 3 times in 3 weeks. Sold it after that.
