Giggles and Stares

I love the style of this car. It is fun to drive. The turbo charger makes a huge difference when driving on the highway passing or merging into highway traffic. Gas mileage is horribly disappointing but I have only used 91 or 93 octane fuel. Average highway mileage is 32.4 miles per gallon. My 2017 non turbo Fiat 500 achieved 51 miles per gallon on the highway using the cruise control. I don’t like that uConnect does not show my telephone GPS through the screen when my phone is connected to the radio via cable. This car needs a CD player. Alpine speakers distort when playing music with bass even when the equalizer is set to zero bass. Privacy glass would be an awesome standard option at least in the back three windows. Tailgating drivers appear to enjoy seeing Fiat 500 drivers looking in their rear view mirrors to see how close the tailgating semi truck or pickup truck is to the back of their car. My car is white with the Urbana package, sweet look makes the car look fast, could be the reason for people tail gating me all the time.

Most reliable vet I’ve ever owned

I’ve bought my wife several nissans that immediately had problems as soon as we left the dealership, this car has no rattling or wired engine noises or transmission noises, for the money this is the best car on the market

Fun car for the money.

Im a tall guy at 6'2" and I fit comfortably but without the sunroof option. I enjoy driving this car everyday and the stock exhaust is amazing and will turn heads as this is a sleeper most people don't know about. The engine and manual gearbox feels great and hopefully reliable. My only issue is the materials used in the interior as it's all hard plastic. I do hear a bit of rattle between the windows and door panels and one air vent slider is not working but should be handled under warranty. It's a fun ride and handles curves well.
