For the first time ever, I can afford to buy a new car

may be £30 roadts but not on the new rules as £145 after the 1st year

Pass me a balaclava.

The panda is OK, it's better than many at its price point. Heat.

Not if it's preregistered in March.

only 4 seats too

A friend of mine purchased one of these new in January. The 1.2 Lounge model. Seems well built and from what I can tell seems almost identical to my Daughters 500, same chassis engine etc. Just the shape and the extra space with 5 doors. Great value at this price.

Not arguing with you, but what sort of chassis do you get on one of these?

I had to scrap a Fiat with 50k on the clock 10 years old. Repairs were too expensive. The last straw was a linkage between the gear lever and the gearbox which was made out of plastic. To replace this requires taking the engine and gearbox out and dismantling the gearbox. £1000 repair so that Fiat could save a few pence making the car. That was just one example.

Fiats have a very poor reputation for a very very good reason.

I know it doesn't relate to this deal, but I'm genuinely interested - was this a quote from Fiat or 3rd part garage. Did you get a few quotes?

I guess the poster just meant that the 500 has a good rep and pointed out this shares a common base and components without the funky styling.
It just says to me the 500 could be a lot cheaper.

They use the same floorpan and suspension, engine, exhaust etc . The Fiat 500 has been acclaimed as a good car so cant see why the Panda should be slated. Obviously the older Pandas were rust buckets but generally this Panda seems well put together, especially at this deals price. I dont think the diesel nor the 900 turbo engine are as good as the faithful 1.2 / 1.4 Fire Petrol engines.

Is it pre reg?

Wife purchased the previous model Panda in 2011 and traded it in for this one last year. Six years with not a single problem, not even a light bulb going.
We never take extended warranty, paint protection, scotchguard add ons etc. Be aware if purchasing a service plan that this Pandas first 'service' is just a visual check - no oil or filter changes are done.
At this price it may only have 4 seat belts fitted and may not have a spare wheel. Fuel economy is not as good as stated. Otherwise can't fault it.

You'd need something a bit quicker than a Panda as a getaway car!

In my view the 500 is very overpriced, I hadn't realised how much of the bits were shared with the Panda.

Nothing to do with this deal, but I've recently bought a Celerio and park it next to a 500 at work. The 500 looks cute, but it's really not worth literally double the cost of mine.

So in conclusion, people who care more about looks buy a 500.
More practical people buy a Panda? (and get virtually the same car)

Looks like a great deal.

I've only just traded my FIAT 500 1.2 after 9 years and 175000 miles, only one breakdown due to the clutch otherwise only had to sort out general wear and tear stuff

Blah blah blah

Show me someone who thinks a car is a status symbol and I'll show you a fool.

I'd sooner own one of these and put money into property or investments any day than the amount of people out there driving new BMW's and renting.

Cheap but do you need ta add a £149 admin fee to the price?

Cough cough.

What's the difference between a very good reason,and a very very good reason.

Just offered to buy my Mrs one and she said " F off you fat T, it looks the effing Pope mobile, you some sort of special P arent ya?" I ain't heard swear in weeks, Must be a bad car.

On the other hand, I have a 7 year old panda diesel with 120000 on the clock and it has never let me down and other than normal serving and new brake discs in January plus two new shock absorbers I've had to spend nothing on it. For a cheap little runaround it is the best car i have ever had (and i've had plenty).

final payment of £2337 makes total over £8k & only 5000 annual mileage. Or am I reading this wrong

I'd rather have a base Dacia Sandero for the same money (even without a radio or spare wheel)

Fiat? no thanks, I'd rather walk.

FIAT (fix it again tomorrow)

I'm talking from experience too, the 04 punto I had was the worst thing I've ever had the displeasure of owning. NEVER AGAIN.

​Rather buy a 3 to 4 year old second-hand Mazda 2 for the same money. Agreed that spending tens of thousands of pounds on a car is foolish but each to their own.

If you want cheaper you could buy a Ford fiesta, its the same car underneath.
same as 500/panda all though the rear brake cyclinder on the mazda is 3 times the price.

she's no James May, but she seems to have the measure of you.

Wonder how much one of these would be on a lease deal, as £99 a month on finance is already cheap!

Not bad, but like many people who have owned a fiat, never again. Wonder how they manage to squeeze so little power from a 1.2, must be an American engine.

Fiat. They're all into this world class engineering stuff. Think they're like many others, spend a fortune with noticeboards and talk about how great it is but in reality they can't see the wood for the trees, hence their reliability issues. A decent engineer can design something that works well, others can probably improve on it, it doesn't take Japanese speak and loads of paper to do it. Last Fiat I drove had to be reversed onto a drive because there was a 2 in 3 chance you wouldn't get reverse in the morning. Great price for a car, just don't expect it to last or even start the day after you get it home.
