Nice runner at first but some common problems - not worth risk!
Car review of Fiat Punto 1.1 by jennster1984

Advantages: Nice drive, comfortable
Disadvantages: Expensive Faults.

I owned a punto for the last 5 years and although I purchased it second hand for under £2000 I have paid countless times for faults with it which I have since found out are very common, so although I am not going to write an extreemly long review, I hope ... Read review

Mine was at about 40,000 miles too....not a reasonable price to have to pay at a relativly low mileage! by jennster1984

Maintenance high and poor service support despite being comfy
Car review of Fiat Punto 1.2 8v by shmooj

Advantages: decent looks
Disadvantages: high maintenance for a young car, expensive servicing, lack of convenient dealers

Had a second hand Y reg 3-door punto for a year. On the whole, we were disappointed with the high cost of maintaining it. We had a diagnostic light come up on the dashboard and the user manual was terrifically unhelpful asking us simply to report to a Fia ... Read review

Disadvantages: small car

A quality little runner
Car review of Fiat Punto 1.2 8v by Greenyman

Advantages: Cheap, easy to run, very reliable
Disadvantages: Awkward doors, slight lack of grip in tyres

THE PUNTO To all car lovers out there I would like to draw your attention to this keen little runner. I realise after the countless series of ‘Topgear’ shown on the BBC that most of you will be more mesmerised by the likes of Ferrari 360’s and Lamborg ... Read review

Punto To The Rescue
Car review of Fiat Punto 1.2 8v by bilbobaginz

Advantages: Decent engine with low emissions and fuel in-take.
Disadvantages: Tiny top speed and power-steering failure occurs too often.

I purchased my Fiat Punto 6months ago from an auction in Nottingham, for just £1,000 + £200 auction charge. The car was in great condition (besides a flat tire which put bidders off), with only 41,000 miles of the clock! When I got the car home I discover ... Read review

Do yourself a favour, DON'T BUY.
Car review of Fiat Punto 1.2 8v by Coops46

Advantages: A lot of kit for the money, and very large inside.
Disadvantages: 3am breakdowns, clutch, electrics, body panels extremely weak, can be dented with a slight pressure.

If you're thinking of purchasing this car, please PLEASE think again. RELIABILITY- Thought I'd get started on this as it really affects the whole experience. In 1999, it is extremely evident that the engineers all decided to finish the car off, or go ... Read review

1998 Fiat Punto 55 sx
Car review of Fiat Punto 1.2 8v by masterm1nd

Advantages: Parts are cheap, fuel efficent, drives well (when running)
Disadvantages: Car suffers mid life crisis after 40,000 miles.

I bought this car for £500. It was a 1997 (R) reg Punto 1.1sx. It had 50,000 miles on the clock with full service history. I thought the car would be OK as the milage was quite low and there was only two previous owners. After a month of owning the ... Read review

Unfortunately, when you buy an 11-year-old car for £500 you can expect there to be a few problems - but, Fiats do particularly have a reputation for being rather flimsily made and also rustbuckets (the commenter below was lucky!). I can only ever afford to buy cheap 2nd hand cars and will always buy Japanese or German, with the occasional older (ie, sturdier) American car or Jaguar! by thereddragon
