Firm ride and suspension doesn't cushion potholes but it does feel sporty to drive.

Fiat Punto Hatchback (03-06)

Value

5 out of 5

For the space inside and the goodies (elec windows, central locking, alloys, spoiler, CD player) you get it can't be faulted.

Costs

5 out of 5

Like my previous Punto which was very reliable I expect this to be, average 40mpg driving mostly in urban areas.

Performance

3 out of 5

Nippy is the right word up to about 40mph and then it's still not too bad, cruises easily at 80 on the motorway.

Reliability

4 out of 5

Too new to tell although expect it to be as reliable as my last Punto which never missed a beat.

With alloys and spoiler, looks the part in red, just don't try to beat anyone at the lights.

Comfort

3 out of 5

As said before, the ride is a bit firm but inside there really is loads of space, it's good to be able to raise the driver's seat as well for a better view of the road. Road noise does intrude into the cabin though, I think they skimped on soundproofing!

Security

3 out of 5

Immobiliser as standard and the alloys have locking nuts as standard and the stereo is a non-standard fit, reckon thieves will find an easier target.

Service

5 out of 5

Arnold Clark in Oldbury West Mids seem to know their onions and I got the car all in for just £6,400, will service myself anyway.
