Hot for me, I had my Fiat Panda for 10 years and not one problem, (touch wood)even though I have never had it serviced.

I feel sorry for whoever you sold it to!
Not a bad car for the money but find out about your local dealer before you buy, some are good, some are so bad they will put you off Fiat for life.

I prefer Tomorrow. It implies that the Fiat has to be fixed every day, probably by Tony.

You need to re-read the highway code & follow it's orders before you move off in you're car.
Was it you I watched a video of on the M4 driving with a tiny gap to see through released by the Police to show how many drivers have no understanding of the highway code & driving with clear & clean windows ensuring the are so before they leave the roadside?https://metrouk2.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/ay_101932760.jpg
The aircon can have your windscreen clear in seconds if the windscreen is misty on the inside and keep it that way the whole journey - you can have it clear before you move off.
On the other hand, you could give the inside of your windscreen a wipe before you set off, but on a cold winters day it is likely to mist up again early on in the journey, causing you to pull over for (1) another wipe, (2) squint through the condensation, or (3) wipe while on the move.
Luckily you know your Highway code and will undoubtedly choose option 1, stopping at a safe place to wipe your windscreen.
It will never mist up with the demister on.
Thats why its called a demister.

Demisters don't work as well as aircon - usually you have to be blowing a hurricane at your screen to clear it before the engine has properly warmed up and can have a decent stab at warming all the air in the cabin. It doesn't dry the air out like aircon does, and depending on whether your car has a pre-heater or not (i'm guessing not if it doesn't have aircon), the car could take a lot longer to warm up when you're diverting the heat that the engine is generating while trying to warm up into heating the air you're blasting onto the windscreen. Seconds to clear with aircon (without the hurricane), minutes to clear with a demister.

They call it a demister as it's the best chance a car of very limited equipment has of keeping the windscreen clear of mist without aircon.


​lol at this argument although totally agree with this comment. demister/blowers are useless when the weather is very damp and you are trying clear your windscreen air conditioning is good at clearing fast but I find you become reliant on it after using it because the screen steams up twice as fast when you turn it off due to the temperature differential with the outside world. when they are not broken fords front heated screens are probably the best option available

What utter nonsense.
A demister works on any modern car perfectly well as does mine.
Air-CON is a form of status symbol like alloy wheels or a gti badge.
Its like old bald men driving open top mercs for the poor.

Had a couple of Punto's always reliable and sound. These are now end of lines, new Punto replacement is due soon.

Bargain price for still a decent looking car.
same old story with fiat. they assume that developing a good engine is sufficient to leave behind all the rest in their cars. and clearly it isn't sufficient. they'll never learn.
my missus has a punto and generally it's a pretty good car. Good spec for the price but feels a tad cheap and is quite loud when driving at speed (revs quite high, almost like it needs an extra gear). The ride is a bit stiff too. There are a few other things that I don't like about the too, namely the front pillars are too big, causing quite a noticeable blind spot which is most frustrating when making tight turns, as I find myself awkwardly tilting my head to make sure I don't clip the curbs. Boot space is pretty small considering the size of the car too. One good point is that it's fairly good fuel economy for a petrol.

69 horse power? My lawn mower is prob more powerful than that....

69hp is plenty for a small lightweight car like this, 0-62 in 14.4 seconds and top speed of 97mph. Not my cup of tea but the deal seems reasonable.

This is what Fiat is famous for.. Small car segment like the punto and 500. Decent enough deal, I bet the 1.4 turbo engine model is probably a lot more expensive? What an engine that turbo Is. I remember test driving a bravo sport which had the same turbo engine which produced 150bhp...... From a 1.4. They also do lower 120 bhp model.
http://cdn.carbuyer.co.uk/sites/carbuyer_d7/files/styles/columns-8/public/jato_uploaded/Fiat-Punto-hatchback-2012-front-quarter-main.jpg
Lacks style compared to the competition, other words dated.
I got one in the Sept Promotion. £85 deposit & 47 payments of £85.02. Final payment £3009 inc £285 finance fee. Car so far has been fine. Build quality is good. Fiat have upped their game on this version. It is a bit slow at low revs, but it will pick up and is more than adequate for mostly town use. 6 miles each way to work and getting 42 mpg, with no long journeys. It keeps up with similar type cars around it. Steering & clutch is light. Easy to drive. Day lights handy. We also have a 60 plate Fiesta owned since new and it is as good in my opinion. **** at your will. £19.62 a week I think is not bad. Took 3 year fixed service plan out and negotiated 15% discount on top of fixed price.
For those of you who say Fix It Again Tomorrow then that must also apply to -
Ford, Vauxhall, Saab, Jeep, Dodge, etc etc who they build engines for. Oh better not buy a Ford KA that's built totally by Fiat with a Ford badge slapped on it.

Those comments are normally made buy the same guys who say they are rust buckets. They are galvanised by the way.

Could anyone help me out with a first car? new or used... 6k to spend on the car and ill be under my mothers insurance.. cheers.

I hope you're not planning on 'fronting'...

Unfortunately thats about the only way a young person can get insured on a car, short of paying about 3 grand to insure a 1 litre micra or such like.
Nah it's not that expensive. It was £1800 to insure my 1 litre Corsa, but my postcode is one of the most expensive in the country (a lot don't even insure it). For girls it's a lot cheaper!

The pic is the last shape panda and a 100hp model at that. Just happen to own that very car in white and its a hoot.

i test drove one of those a few years ago. it is definitely not what i would describe as a hoot. but it is otherwise ok for a small car. a good deal for those in this marketplace.

If you just test drove it with the salesman sat in with you then you wouldn't be driving it like it needs to be. I test drove one at a garage and wasn't impressed. Spoke to another owner who took me out in his and showed me how to drive it i.e. lots of revs and after a blast myself I changed my tune.

At 100hp and less than a ton when driven with enthusiasm it really is very good fun to the point it reminds me a lot of my 205 GTi I had when I was 18 and the 205 is still considered one of the best drivers warm/hot hatchbacks about. I'm under no illusion that the 100hp is a fast car but for what it is it is a very fun to drive little motor.

To put it into perspective previous motors included 205 Gti, BMW 3 series, 2 x Mazda RX-7 twin turbos, Renaultsport Clio 172 and a Mk1 Audi TT running 280bhp.

All the reviews of the outgoing Panda were positive and the new shape Panda has recently come out on top of the new VW Up / Seat Mii / Skoda Go in the Autocar review.

Just putting my freshly passed child on my wifes micra would have cost me 1900 pounds and he is 25! i'd hate to see what it would cost to put a 17 year old on it. In the end he got a 1980s vw and got classic insurance 250 pounds for the year.

My first car was a fiat punto 1999, loved it, never had a single issue with it in the 2 years I had it.

I can compare this to many other cars as I have had 23 in total. I currently have a Saab 9-3 (2006) and I have had no end of problems. I'll never buy Saab again, but I sure will consider Fiat.
Gr44
Yeah, I can't argue with that.

I recently had a Fiat Punto Evo as a hire car in Spain; it was by far the worst thing I've ever driven. Still, free vouchers right?


I had one as a hire car when someone went into mine. Not a bad car, there again.. mine was new, hire cars are usually worn in pieces of crap regardless!

135BHP out of a 1.4 is pretty good... I had a 2001 2.0 Astra and that was only 130 something BHP!

Old engine though, made in the 80's I think.

Anyway, thanks for the heat on my first deal! :)


Yeah well worth a test drive in the Evo Multi-Air Turbo if possible! The deal probably deserves more heat but as you will see on the site many vote negatively but no reason posted as to why
Guessing the idiots making snide comments are the ones who have never even owned or driven one.
Cheap to run, cheap to insure , no better or worse than most same budget cars.

Well let's all ignore the statistics then (which put BMW mid table, OK but far from best) and rush out and buy one because yours have never had any 'major' problems (however you define major).

What's the relevance here anyway when the cheapest new 'BMW' is the basic Mini at over £10K?

Got one of these the other day, a base model 1.1 Active Eco For a smidgen under £5k with servicing included for first 36,000 miles. Compared to the alternative, a 5 yo Clio/Punto etc. for about £4k (need to budget for higher running costs) this is a no-brainer.

The Clio etc. would be worth about £2k in 3 years so £2k depreciation, wouldn't be warranted, would need at least one service a year at about £75-100 a pop, costs £120/yr in road tax, needs an MOT every 12 months, will likely need normal wear & tear items like tyres, brakes etc. replacing in first 18 months and will be less fuel efficient. On top of this it is an older car, likely to be less safe in an accident and is, let's not forget, second hand with all the risks that entails.

The Panda should still be worth at the very least £3k in 3 years time so £2k depreciation, has full warranty, servicing is covered, costs £35/yr road tax, no MOTs to worry about, shouldn't need any wear & tear items in first 18-24 months and will be more fuel efficient. On top of this it is brand spanking new and will probably fare better in an accident.

This was to replace an MOT fail Micra which was getting on for 17 years old and we did look at the 5 door alternatives (Aygo, Pixo, i10, Picanto etc.) but none were as suitable (or as available - we needed a car quick due to the MOT fail!) as the Panda. Walked into the dealer on Friday afternoon, picked the car up on Monday - job done.

Bangernomics are all well and good -- until about 7 months ago the combined age of both our cars was over 35 years so i know all about running older cars on a budget - but there comes a time when you need to know your car is going to be there when you need it and you don't want to have to worry about unexpected bills. Until our kids are finished full-time nursery and in school this is exactly the situation we are in, so a deal like this is exactly what we need.

Oh, and the car's not bad aswell ;) certainly better than a £5k car from 10 or 20 years ago.

as a female who knows absolutely nothing about cars, i has a panda dynamic from new (07) and it was brilliant, i have just swapped it for my hubbys kia rio (o8) and hes px my car for a new one for him and this car is also a great drive, but i will be buying a new car in march so anyone got any knowledge of the fiat qubo or the nissan note as i am toying with getting one of those, unless someone can give me suggestion for a better car for same kinda money dont want anything to big cause most of the time its just me and freddy


The qubo didn't get great reviews at all. The Note is a bit dull and sensible , but very reliable and practical.
I'd also seriously consider a Fiat Grande Punto - I had one as a courtesy car recently and highly rated it , and there are some excellent buys around.

I think with driving lessons, the best recommendation is word of mouth.

With a decent independent instructor, there's every chance you may save over this in lessons and failed tests alone!
I think you will find many people would like to be seen in one, try Felipe Massa, Michael Schumacher, many motoring journalists, and the list can go on and on.
How many young ppl want to be seen in a Fiat 500? (it was released as a Lady's car in the '60)

so glad im a disabled driver, all i pay is £45 per week and that gets me a brand new car (got the new fiesta), breakdown cover, insurance, any repairs covered and free tyres for 3 years then i get to pick another car then.

i learnt to drive with BSM, the driving instructor was great. Looks like they have changed the discount you get, when i was learning you could get a discount of £200 for a Corsa.


Wow, lucky you.
The OP didn't say if the voucher could be used in addition to any other offers, i.e. the scrappage scheme. You can't get a discount on these so £2K scrappage and another £500 is awesome. These now hold ther money better than the Mini so not a bad buy at all, if you like them obviously.

Seems a little harsh to throw the manhood argument at someone just because they don't want to drive a badly built car that looks c**p and offers no protection in an accident.

What an ignorant statement. THe Fiat Panda is definitely one of the best built superminis on the road at the moment.
MrRobin;5021134
How do you figure that?? Surely if all the new cars have been sold then there is a boom in the motor industry! :roll:

my point was that if there really was a squeeze they could sell all the stockpiled cars at half price or much reduced (theyre only gathering rust) as they are a depreciating asset.
this would kick start the new build
my peugeot is 10 in september, I've been looking on autotrader now for 4 months
meaning to buy a new/1yr old car last month that is until the news of this scheme came out.
Haven't seen much reduction in price in my 2 choice cars and cant see how dealers would implement £1000 discount...ie RRP - existing discount - extra £1000, I dont think so..

Seems so, but Fiat as a manufacturer still struggles with reliability, If I was going to get a small car I would stick to one of the more reliable Japanese brands and definately one with a 5 star safety rating. Not sure I could bring myself to buy a car with eco in the name either.


Rubbish!

Fiat Panda is actually one of the most reliable cars in its class - breakdowns per 000's across europe are the lowest in the industry.

People are happy to pour scorn on a brand without actually ever having owner one or researched into whether their comments are valid
Another internet search via [url]www.drivethedeal.com[/url] gets this car in at £5721.73 (Ex ANY trade invalue).....

Funny, 20 hours later and I get a call that the test drive can only last ½ an hour...
Got a call yesterday, and was informed that the test drive from a local dealer is now just for 24 hours.
Hey,

I entered my details and got a call from someone who told me the 48hour test drive stopped last year, they did offer a normal test drive with the local dealer, but not a 48 hour one : (;-):x
I've never heard anything either. We are actually in the market for a car, so it's their loss!
Still waiting 3 weeks after requesting. No wonder the car market is on it's knees

It sounds like they're just going to give you a £5 charged oyster card that when you finish with you can hand into the underground office for example to redeem the £3 deposit for the actual card.

If that is the case then definitiely you can use this card to travel around London - buses, underground, and some railways.
I'm taking the family (2 adults and 3 kids - 2 under 5yrs) to London for a day in August - would travel by the tube be allowed using this card? Are there any other cost effective ways of travel on the tube?
Hmm seems like you only need to fill in an eco survey and they will give you a touch & go oyster card worth £5 travels. Then if you hand the card back into the office after use they will refund u £3 also.

Flagship store is at 105 Wigmore Street, W1U 1QY London

As I stated earlier - the Polo will hold its value better but only by 4% more and for the spec and deal (or lack of one on the Polo), the Punto was a far better car

As for saving money, I still have £1000 towards the fuel, low rate finance and I didn't even pay a deposit and I know where to go if I have a problem.

So as many people have kindly commented - im happy:-D


you have been a mug sorry too say it.you are going to end up paying £10344 for a car that can be bought for £6200.even if you take £1000 off for fuel your paying £9344.you should have got a bank loan.an example below and this is at a high rate

Your monthly repayments would be £155.51

For a £6200 loan repayable over 4 years and 0 months with a 9.8% APR

The total amount repayable is £7464


this is not a hot deal and should be voted cold cold cold.just remember your going to be paying £199 a month not clever is it ?i have bought 4 brand new cars in last 12 years and saved well over £2000 per car.i use the internet to get best prices then take info to dealer and ask them too match it and each time i have found a dealer that would.average car price has been £8400 and i have been paying on average £6200.

Clio is based on the Renault-Nissan B platform, as are the Note, Cube, Tiidi etc., not the old Nissan B-platform.


Yes, true, but the "new" B is an evolution of the old one. More Nissan than Renault -- including Nissan electrics, the main problem with the old Renault cars.

Older Renaults I'm afraid I wouldn't touch with yours.

As for Fiat, yes the warranty is appealing -- but I remain to be convinced about the company. They always seem to produce a good model every so often, then revert to type. The 5-year warranty probably reflects the fact that they've been massacred by the Koreans in the budget sector in the last few years, and need to take the game back to Hyundai and Kia.

If you're buying new, and get the warranty, then that's a fair deal though -- just hope you don't get one of the Friday cars.
I wouldn't knock Fiat's reliability on new models. How do you think they can now afford to offer five years unlimited mile warranty? Its because their build quality and reliability have improved so much in recent years...
unless you do a lot of miles your much better leasing one, having a quick look around you can get the grande punto for £109, then after 3 years just hand it back, depreciation alone on fiat is more than that!
What's your total payback?

£199 for how long? 5 years?

I always thought garlic bread was the future!


No that's due to be banned as a noxious substance and largely responsible for the melting of the Greenland ice shelf - or is it termite farts (?), I get the two confused.

Am looking for a first car and everyone's tips are useful here. Can anyone advise on where to get a good first car and what????

Been looking on eBay, so far no joy. Looking to spend £800
Old thread but just wanted to see if anyone has used www.autoebid.co.uk as they have some good prices on new and pre-registered cars.
I've been looking for a Fiat Panda Dynamic new or nearly new. The site you refer to they cost £6995 pre registered.They seemed expensive to me. Imanaged to found some for £4995 ( saved me £2000) with the same warranty, only 10 miles on the clock at a Nissan garage in Burnley. Lancs. They had loads of different colours to choose from and the sales people there were great. Really helpful.
