Used Fiat Punto Hatchback (2003 - 2006) Review

Review by Parkers on
3.5
Punto's basic design has been around since 1994 - although refreshed many times - yet it's still a top supermini choice with a particularly youthful image helping make it popular with buyers. The most recent facelift has taken a step towards a more mature look.

Interior feels too cheap.

Summary

Parkers Rating:

3.5 out of 5

Punto's basic design has been around since 1994 - although refreshed many times - yet it's still a top supermini choice with a particularly youthful image helping make it popular with buyers. The most recent facelift has taken a step towards a more mature look. It's cheap to buy, no-hassle to own, well specced and has a range of willing and economical engines.

The downsides are relatively heavy depreciation, a so-so dealer network and a patchy reputation for reliability.

What owners say...

 It's fuel economy (when driven sensibly) and it's surprisingly spacious, I'm 6'2" and have no problems.

 Problems with the car cont..The metal work that houses and holds the radiator in place has totally rusted through and now only cable ties holding it in place until I can scrape together the hundreds...
