This car is fantastic, I like the blue interior. It is my first car and I've had it just over a year and it runs very well. Very spaceous for such a small car but fits 4 adults in no problem. Easy to park, reasonably cheap to run. On the down side, the headlights have gone cloudy, the wipers are juddery and it is a bit of a pain to refuel as it keeps thinking the tank is full when there is nothing in it, you have to master your own thechnique to fill up but once you've practised a bit it's...

I buy damaged cars from insurance companies so I only buy cheap run abouts.. I always buy VW Polo and Ford Ka's use them for 6 months and sell them. The Punto was a totaly different buy for me.. Impressed! yes I am.. It's abit bigger than a Polo as big almost of the Mk1 Golf of it's day so you can chuck your kit in the back ok and 2 kids.. Parts well they are so cheap... Easy to work on. But then I know a fair bit about cars..so if you don't know how to work on them it's like any other... (read more)

Well, where do I start? I bought my red Fiat Punto in January 2009. As I had just passed my test this car was a dream when first bought. I must say it's great as a first car, although I struggled 70 on the motorway, under the bonnet is cheap and worst of all in the MIA's is the bright blue seats. However this was bought as a present for passing my driving test. As mentioned in previous reviews is the car as box standard, nothing special about it. It doesn't even have a rev counter or...

It's a car of Magic, I've driven my Fiat Punto 1.2 Mia for ages and after what bad mouthing I've heard, I have found this car to be the ideal for young driver's. People say this car will break down, but I say they are wrong or just drive pedal to the floor. This car has given me no problems, never has it even coughed on me, I was wanting to upgrade for a while until I found this to be more cost effective and the fact that it suits my needs in every way.

The Fiat Punto 1.2 Mia requires an adjustment of expectation. There's nothing fundamentally wrong or unsafe about it; it's just basic. It's low performance as distinct from under-performance.
Over the last 11 years, I've had several Puntos. This is the lowest spec one I've ever had, and being at the bottom of the range, it lacks the zip and the refinements of my previous twin cam ELXs. It had one previous owner who put about 50K miles on it.
Having said that, nothing has failed, broken... (read more)

I bought my Fiat Punto in 2003 and kept it about 10 months. The car was ok'ish, and as this was the first newish car I had bought, I was very pleased with it. The car never gave me any mechanical problems and always started first time, however after having the car 3 months I realised just how basic it was inside, but then again, I did buy the basic model!!!The gears are terrible in them. As I use my car to and from work- and as in any city centre (Crawling traffic) the gearbox cant handle... (read more)
