“I still have a silly grin on my face whenever I take...”

Written on: 13/10/2009 by freddie brown (1 review written)

I still have a silly grin on my face whenever I take the Barchetta for a run. I am 62 years old, but recently going on 18 due to this little car.
Its very pretty. Lively. Has a wonderful growl. Handles brilliantly.

What I don't like is the Lack of a "WORKSHOP MANUAL" I like to potter on my car but would like a manual… Read Full Review

“I've run a Fiat Barchetta Cabriolet 1800cc as a second...”

Written on: 11/03/2009

I've run a Fiat Barchetta Cabriolet 1800cc as a second car for 7 years doing a fairly low mileage. In that time I've replaced the exhaust, wheel bearings, heater fan, brake discs and pads. So reliability isn't as bad as I'd feared - touch wood. The odd wiring gremlin - slow electric windows and dash illumination can be intermittent.

Overall its been great fun and surprisingly comfortable and practical enough for weekends away. Sharper more adjustable handing wouldn't go amiss though… Read Full Review

“1) Best thing is the wonderfully rorty Itailian...”

Written on: 10/03/2009 by markr1 (1 review written)

1) Best thing is the wonderfully rorty Itailian exhaust note that wails at high revs. Very addictive with the top down.
2) Keen throttle reponse and free-reving nature of the engine.
3) Great grip from standard tyres means it can be thrown into corners.
4) Comfortable ride for a roadster, smooth engine and controls.
5) Interesting syling looks more exotic than the familiar MX5, MR2 or TF. Rarity means people don't know its a Fiat. I have had a Barchetta as a second car for 7 years, doing a low… Read Full Review

Rubblegum's Comment

Written on: 05/03/2008

Strange! There's no electric connection between the handbrake and the throttle..only very late B's got 'fly by wire' throttle..yours is a good ole cable.. most likely worn pads as the handbrake warning light doubles as a pad sensor light.
Your new hood needs adjusting. If its fitted properly then there are no leaks and no wind noise around the windows. Did you have the 6 rubbers along the top of the windscreen seal and above the doors changed at the same time? They wear out and should be changed with the new hood.

“Fine style alternative to MX5, and 'sardined can'...”

Written on: 19/10/2007 by rubblegum (13 reviews written)

Fine style alternative to MX5, and 'sardined can' hatchbacks like Astra's, Peugeots etc.
Starting to show its age. Design dates from '95. Based on Mk1 Punto chassis but well tweaked and you wouldn't notice.
Fast enough 0-60 in 8.5secs with a top end of 125.
DTR Sportscars in Wimbledon are accepted as the Barchetta experts. Most Fiat dealers don't want to know although its not complex to service. Home mechanic is perfectly capable of looking after it.
Real shame Fiat didn't do a proper RHD… Read Full Review

I though this was a helpful review because it seems to be an honest assessment of the car.

“The stylish Barchetta Cabriolet 1800cc sports car from...”

Written on: 25/11/2005 by Jack1009 (1 review written)

The stylish Barchetta Cabriolet 1800cc sports car from FIAT is the best 'Value for Money' sports car available in the UK. The performance of the 1.8 Punto engine in such a light bodied convertible makes this a rocket with superb road holding, comfort and economy. The LHD puts people off, but shouldn't as it adds to the charm and driving experience.

Downside - the boot size and insurance costs, but for £12k it cannot be beaten, and is preferable in EVERY respect to the Porsche, TVR and BMW… Read Full Review

Maxmann's Response to Jack1009's Review

Written on: 26/10/2007

Barchetta is a nice little 'softish' roadster that is great fun in the MX5 league. To compare it with a Beemer, TVR, Porsche etc is a bit silly I think. Its not in their class and not intended to be.
