Do you care to give the deal some heat then, as there are a number of muppets voting this cold with no apparent reason!

I expect it is - Fiat don't make any cars in the UK :p

Can recommend Motorpoint. Bought my previous car from them - Renault Megane imported from Cyprus. Picked it up from Glasgow, beautifully prepared and presented, drove it back home and never had a problem with it in 5 years & 60K miles. Renault main dealers here didn't even realise it was an import.

If if is a parallel import it may reflect on insurance and possible resale values as well a uk's frainchises' guarantee.

Indeed, as well as being pre-registered in somebody elses name.

Oh and don't forget the added charges that Motorpoint may slap on.

"Motor dealers in the EU are compelled under EU competition law to supply right hand drive models at the same price as LHD models if a buyer request it. Strictly speaking, such imports are known as parallel imports. Warranties on new cars bought in an EU member state are valid throughout the EU, meaning that a UK resident who has bought a new car in another member state and then imports in into the UK will be covered by the same warranty. However, whereas UK warranties tend to be for three years, those in other EU countries may be only for one or two."

Quite often the spec on an import is also better than UK models and additional warranty can be purchased for a nominal sum compared to the saving available. Car may be pre-registered to Motorpoint but you should still appear on log book as first owner. Only additional charges should be for preparation (don't be tempted to decline this or you may receive a car covered in manufacturer's wax coating which will be almost impossible to clean off) and possibly delivery to your local Motorpoint branch.

And Ford, Vauxhall, Renault, Citroen, Peugeot, Seat, Fiat, Alfa are not nearly as on the same level as a Honda, Toyota or Mazda. I have no idea why people buy this unreliable this Euro Trash - Germans cars not included obviously!

Agree with john1972. Had Punto GT, parts very expensive, poor reliability. Very low speed impact buckled chassis and meant car was written off.
#19
We know you wouldnt buy this for performance but 0-60 in 13.2 seconds is really toilling.
This would do well to climb a hill..

Show me where you can get a brand new ford focus for £7999 and ill take your point seriously (and buy the Focus)
#22
Good price if you want one, but it's a Fiat and Italians make pretty looking cars but the engineering is hopeless, so this will fall to pieces like an Alfa Romeo. That's my logical deduction and slightly tongue in cheek one :P

This is not a new car. You will be the second owner on the v5 as it is pre registered with "DELIVERY MILES".
They are selling 59 plate focus 1.8 STYLE only 6 months older than the punto for £300 more.
BETTER CAR, BETTER PERFORMANCE,BETTER COMFORT, BETTER EVERYTHING....

Nothing wrong with motorpoint, had 3 cars from them. px will be low though.
Everything wrong with fiat. only buy if you live next door to a dealer. you'll need them often!

1st and only punto i had cost nearly £200 to replace a broken window wiper part, not to mention when the electronic power steering failed costing around £700+ for the part from main dealers i believe, not to mention other stuff, slipped timing belt etc... it soon got traded in - good ridence, utter pile of junk. If things are still the same with Punto's this is liquid nitrogen cold, because by the time you come to sell, with all that goes wrong and cost of parts you could afford a much better car.

Havent voted purely down to the fact I'm not sure if Punto's have improved or not since my year 2000 sporting model although i highly doubt they have improved.

They have. Nice to see another disgruntled Sporting owner. I had the cambelt snap - my own fault though. :D

Its cheap for what it is if you want a punto.

My mrs had a brand new one 10 years ago, terrible car it was damp inside after a few months seemed to be leaking water. We got rid within 2 years of having it.

You get what you pay for at the end of the day, German cars for me all the way.

But my Seat is a VW under the hood. Spanish styling or inherent lack of, and German engineering.

They make nice looking cars that break though :) That includes Ferrari and Lamborghini, and the usual culprits of Alfa Romeo (possibly the worst for reliability) and Fiat.

Broadly true except that the German stuff is not as good as you may think. Objective data does put Toyota (boring) at the top of the reliability tables closely followed by Honda. The French and Italians are at the bottom of the table. Brands like VW and even BMW are only middling - though you may forgive them as they are often a better drive. Nissan are not up there with the best of the Japanese but it may surprise you that Jaguar are in the top 5!

Very few truly poor cars are made these days - most of the comments on here will be pure brand prejudice and little more. Personally I wouldn't touch a Fiat but at the right price they can be a good buy.

We buy and sell cars and Punto's sell so well, people seem to love them! but OMG what a load of crap they are.. Japanese all the way for us (Mazda's are superbly reliable cars and look great in my opinion).

Toyota sure they are the best when the breaks dont fail. Would anyone seriously buy one now after whats happened recently ?They only had to recall several million cars.

Honda are good but very very boring. Same Nissan. The bottom line is several Jap car models are made in the uk - no good if its a jap car made in the UK IMO. Might upset people but thats the way I see it and dont start talking about Astons etc. I only buy German cars made Germany so that rules out seat etc.

I reckon the Korean cars are getting pretty good these days in terms of there looks and certainly build quality. Would much rather have a kia etc over a fiat. You get a 7 year warranty and its been properly made in the first place.

Some of your views are pure prejudice, which is fine but you may end up excluding some good, well made cars as a result. Britain is capable of building cars very well (the BL legacy is now long gone); eg the Jaguar and Land Rover plant on Merseyside had the best quality record of all Ford plants across Europe when Ford owned it. Conversely both VW and Mercedes have been through some periods of distinctly iffy quality and they don't challenge the top players. BMW aren't that great either.

However, all of this has to be put in context: even the poorest performers (notably the French and Italian brands) are way better than the average car of just 20, even 10 years ago.

I agree re the Koreans: I haven't seen the statistics on reliability but I'd certainly look at KIA and Hyundai if I was shopping in those segments.

Sorry, I haven't as it's confidential data produced for and shared internally in the industry. However, there are numerous surveys in the public domain which broadly support the very comprehensive research like this which the manufacturers do for themselves. The AutoExpress annual survey is easily accessible and is a reasonable start point, though as the respondents are 'self selecting' from people with some enthusiasm for cars it is arguably somewhat biased; hasn't stopped Skoda scoring vey well though! No doubt Which? do something too though I haven't looked at it.

I would caution against selecting on reliability data alone though. Yes, you'll want to try and avoid an unreliable dog but there's so much more to satisfaction with a car. Bear in mind too that survey results are the average of many samples - your particular Toyota could be a poor one or your Fiat/Alfa/Renault/Citroen/Peugeot an unusually good one. You are simply reducing your risk, not eliminating it. Also, if you plan to keep your car for a long period there are wide variations in durability which may not align with initial quality. There are plenty of Rover owners across Europe who are finding their cars are lasting very well whereas the 'quality' makes can become uneconomical propositions to keep on the road.
