apbrown's review of Fiat Punto 1.2 8v

★★★★☆

“The Fiat Punto is a lovely hatch, excellent around...”

Written on: 13/11/2008 by apbrown (1 review written)

Good Points
15" alloy wheels, side skirts, comfortable seats with the added bonus of a lower back restraint on the drivers seat, lexus style head lights, the joy that is the city button and the vivid Punto colours that can be purchased. Mines the yellow one.

Bad Points
A little bit bumpy at times, the interior can be abit dull on some models. 0-60 is abit to be desired, can be abit thirsty, my Fiat Punto 1.2 8v Sporting drives about 34-44mpg as oppose to the new shape Punto that will do up to 66mpg.

General Comments
The Fiat Punto is a lovely hatch, excellent around town, group 2 Ins, my advise to anyone is to always have a warrenty just for that peace of mind as Fiat's are known to be abit pricey on parts/repairs. However I have a 2004 model and it has sailed through every MOT and Service and for a first car it doesn't have to be a shed on wheels as the Sporting model has the sporty extra's, alloy whels, CD player, front and side skirts etc.

Gven the option i would buy a Fiat Punto again.
