2013 FIAT 500 Reviews

5 out of 5

Suprisingly Great Little Car

Jan 03, 2013

As an previous owner of small cars and a current owner of a Mercedes SLK - I can safely say that my new 2013 Fiat 500 is a real blast to drive. After reading all of the "panned reviews" I was a bit hesitant, but after the test drive I was sold and bought a red 2013 500 Sport with a manual 5 speed transmission on December 28th. I have great doubts that those who wrote that the Fiat 500 ride was "bumpy," or it was unstable in the wind, or it lacked power going up hills - previously owned big sloppy Detroit built cars... and never really owned anything smaller. I drive mine to work on a combination of rural country roads and SoCal freeways 5 days and 500 miles a week . I've owned a 55 Chevy, Beetle, VW Van, Karmann Ghia, VW Rabbit Diesel, 5 Rx7s, 350 SL, 59 Cady, Mazda Miata, 2000 F250 diesel, 2004 F250 Diesel, 2006 and currently own a SLK 280 and an F450 diesel... in addition to my new Fiat 500 Sport. My findings: This is one of my favorite vehicles to drive of all time! Its very tight (well built), has firm steering and tracks well - even heavy gusts, has a smooth 5 speed manual transmission, and actually has enough acceleration to keep me up front in traffic and hums along in the faster lanes on the Freeways. And, for you techies... this car has a very effective Blue&Me to manage phone calls, and the displays provide efficient driving alerts - without being annoying. In sum, If you are looking for an inexpensive, fun, safe, and good riding small car - that gets 40 + mpg - this is the one for you.
