Lots of fun. by Tedolph on 04/23/2014. Trim: 2014 FIAT 500 Pop, Owned 1 year.
Pros: Styling, handling, ride quality, gas economy.
Cons: Third gear is a little tall, hard plastic next to shifter takes getting used to
Overall review: This is a very fun car, and suprisingly capable on the highway. Expect 45-46 hwy. mpg. if you baby it, 42 mpg. if you run it at 80 mph., about 32-34 mpg in town on medium grade fuel. Handling is very good, but the live rear axle can hop in a curve on a bump if you are near the limits of adhesion. Suprisingly stable at 90 MPH. Suspension is a bit on the soft side so ride quality is good for a short wheelbase . The rear seat is small, but not as small as everyone says. Acceleration if fine once the engine is broken in and you add a high flow drop in airfilter. You have to keep the car in the power band (above 3000 RPM) to really get it to perform, then you can race Mustangs . They will win but you will give them a run for their money. At 101 HP you can race around all day and still obey the law (mostly). Paid about $13,700.00 for it new. There are lots of classy aftermarket accesories/mods you can buy for this car to personallize it and it won't look tacky.
