    I like the look of the old one better. My parents used to have one and it was in the shop at least half the time. It was just an extra car for them so it was not a big deal but I expect reliability when I get a car.

    FIAT = Fix It Again Tony

    I have a friend who bought a Fiat 500L and has only had problems with it from day one. Now the transmission (automatic) does not shift. He has had to sue Fiat because even though all the issues fall under the bumper to bumper warranty, Fiat-Chrysler refuses to repair any non-functioning item. Good luck buying anything from this shit company, may as well buy a polluting VW.

    Sorry to say that I have to agree w/ you. Depending on where your friend lives, he might contact his state's Department of Consumer Affairs, Bureau of Automotive Repair, or AG's office, to report his problems and seek their help.

    The '70s versions of the 124, as well as the MG and Triumph, were awfully nice to look at, if not always fun to drive, but Lord, were they pieces of shit when it came to reliability! OTOH, my '68 Beetle sold in '74 for twice what I paid for it in '71. That was one great little car!

    The new Fiats have a horrible record of repairs and things going wrong.

    They must be trying to maintain their past image. ;)
