First let me say I LOVE THIS CAR so much! However, if the folks at Fiat were to ask me what I would change it would be this....first, you have to take your own oil filter to where ever you want to change your oil as no one carries it...it's a special one that costs almost $40 alone...then throw in they charge you more at the shop...I think it was another $40 to change it! Surprise! There is no accessory power so if you're waiting in the car for someone and want to listen to radio car must run the entire time, only one power port, it needs a second arm rest for the passenger side, the back seat sits at a 90 degree angle with head rests that push the riders head uncomfortably forward...had to pull mine out. If you raise them then you can't see out the small rear window. The door panels are plastic so they scratch if you are wearing anything with buttons, bling, snaps, etc. The owners manual is very vague, The front cupholder appears to hold three...but you can only fit in one...I don't know why they didn't go ahead and give you just two so that two people can place a drink up front. I got the loaded lounge...power everything...but not seats...why not power the seats too? Auto alarm seems to disarm itself??? Don't understand that and since the manual is so vague don't know how to turn it back on.
Ok....all that being said, this is the most fun car I've ever bought, I love it so much, so fun to drive, people love it! I even added eye lashes to the headlights because it's so stinking cute and people are always taking pictures of the car! So many compliments I've received....I was driving a gas hog and it is such a pleasure to go to the station and not be broke after...I think it costs about $35 to fill and it lasts while I do a lot of driving and running! Love that you can change the amount that the top is down! Wish it had a smidge more power for steep gravel hills....and snow...(our honda civic kicks it's butt there). The only other thing I can say is that I was torn between the abarth or the lounge..but so badly was searching for a fuel efficient convertible that I went with the Lounge....now a few months later they are coming out with the convertible Abarth! Wondering if I should trade :) How fun would that be!!! Just wish they'd fix a couple of those minor things I mentioned....read morehide
