Ive had my fiat stilo abarth for 2 years and although it is the 5 door and looks quite ugly compared to the stunning 3 door, I have to say it is just truley epic. I used to have a 2.0 audi a3 year 2004 and to be honest it doesnt compare to the stilo. The a3 is boring, has no features, engine is sluggish, its just so plain. The stilo is in everyway exciting, the engine is really good, never had one problem with it.
It has 170bhp which sounds little for a 2.4 20v but the real power is in the... (read more)

My Stilo Abarth is one of the ~30 in Portugal.
I love my car because is a very special car, like a beautiful woman.
In some points in not 5 stars, but in others (emotionals) is "6 stars".
I cant live without my Abarth.
I know there are most fast cars, but Stilo Abarth is different.
Thanks FIAT and Abarth (read more)

I purchased my Abarth in 2005 and have been enjoying the the drive since. It's given a few glitches, none more than the other cars. It's great on performance, looks, and it's a tough mean machine. Just wont give it up for any other car. If I had to get another car, probably another Abarth in a different colour ...and a sun-roof. (read more)

I've owned my Fiat 2.4 Abarth for two years now, and still love it today. I normally get bored with cars very quickly, but not this furious little beast. I have never had any problems at all and it is very reliable, although thirsty, but its worth the extra cost in fuel. My only complaint is that i go though front tires alot, well a car like this needs to be driven, right! Mines in bright blue and really turns heads, and people can't deny that its a great looking car even my mates who slag... (read more)

I've owned my Fiat Stilo Abarth 2.4 for about a year, and I think its a great car. Its a 2003 5 door, which is not as nice looking as the 3 door, but the suspension is a little less go-cart like, whilst still being on the sporty side, and its loads more practiacal for ferrying the folks around. Great performance, and the only reliability issue I have had is having to have a broken front spring replaced. Otherwise its been great. All the electrical gadgets, (of which there are loads!), are... (read more)

I have had to come to a sad choice and i have had to let my v go :( . I have had it for 4 years and apart from the odd bits that i had to deal with it been the best car i have ever owned and driven, it been good fun. The amount of toys in the car is great even now theres buttons i have not pressed. When it goes to the dealer i just hope some one has as much fun out of it as i did. (read more)

The Fiat Stilo Abarth 2.4 is a good car really with good performance,the 2.4 with selespeed is very quick. even better when its lowered,better handling round corners. my dash was lighting up last week with faults too but i found out that it was a fuse under the bonnet (7.5)amp for the injection and gearbox that broke, when i changed it the car was even better since i got it over a yr ago.

Fantastic car! My Stilo Abarth 2.4 is still perfect after 5 years and 75000 miles of hard use in the awfull brazilian roads. Except for the SkyWindow, an acessory in the Brazilian Abarth, I never had serious problems with the car. And I really don't expect to sell it anyway. (read more)

Fantastic car! Fast, with the great engine. Perfect design, with all useful equipment. I like it very much, and I feel like that abarth has its own personality like no other. Because of that I love my Stilo Abarth. (read more)

Beautiful design and probably the best car fiat designed but unfortunately glitchy.......bring it back fiat but get the engine right this time. Fiat got it smack on the button with the style but the car is very glitchy you guys probably got lucky with your cars we always get them in here with problem after problem and I should know I.

When I was looking to get myself a second hand car, a friend recommended the Fiat Stilo Abarth. I read some of the review's on various sites and was a bit put off.
However with the little money I had I bought one anyway, I can tell you now that I'm so glad I did, this car is lovely to drive, its fast it has all the toys and looks great in three door model. It has not let me down yet, and for the money you pay for these you can't go wrong, these cars must be one of the best kept secrets for a... (read more)

Couldn't ask for more for the price paid. Car is absolutely stunning in Electric Blue with full leather interior. Integrated Sat Nav etc. Features are similar to those found in a top spec £80,000 merc not a £5,500 second hand FIAT!! Automatic gearbox, Paddle Shift Gears, Sat Nav, Handsfree mobile and voice activated controls! Car is quite unique and engine as well as being very nippy also makes a fabulous roar when you put your foot down, I bought mine second hand with fantastic chunky... (read more)

Best car I've ever had - nice for town, fast on autobahn and fun on the alpine-hairpins. Fantastic motor and great looks. Neither my Danish nor my German authorised "Fiat/Alfa/Lancia"-garage has been able to fix the airbag-alarm. Best repair lasted 4000 km - now I just live with the alarm in the dashboard. (read more)

My Fiat Stilo Abarth is a fantastic looking car. Great Valve for money and packed full of toys. Also has a smooth ride And plenty of power when needed thanks to the selespeed gearbox.
The onboard computer also is a great toy telling you even the simple things (like down the bulb gone). A very good all rounder. Powerful packed with toys sat nav is second to none would highly recommend to anyone. (read more)

Two years on and some considerably high miles later my Fiat Stilo Abarth 2.4 is the best place I could have put my money. I cannot knock this car at all.... either I was lucky as many others I know have been, or this car really is just a victim of some negative press and really is a fantastic motor! (read more)

One of the first Fiat Stilo Abarth 2.4 sports cars in the country. Sixty thousand miles. Up to 1000 miles/week at times. I've driven it through all sorts of conditions. It takes a really stupid driver to lose control of this car. As an exponent of the original Italian GT concept (good for everyday use with all the extras needed for the long haul/high milage driver) it's great and the price is superb for what you get. The boy racers can stick to sheer horsepower. The Abarth has... (read more)

The Fiat Stilo Abarth 2.4 is probably the best and most complete car I have ever owned. Unbelievable amount of kit and technology for a 15 grand car.
I love the fact that it isn't a focus and its engine and selespeed gearbox are absolutely superb. Not much room in the rear though and if you can afford it spec the zenon lights. A car for someone who likes to be a little different! (read more)

After 6 letters, 10 faxes and numerous e-mails, I have still not been able to get a sensible answer out of Fiat UK. They seem oblivous to customers, which is probably why they are in trouble.
Im not asking much..
Why does my dashboard light up like a christmas tree with problems that I can't get fixed by the dealer, why is my Satellite navigation stil not connected - 2 years later? (read more)
