Subject: RE: BS: How good/bad is your car?
I hate to say it because I don't like bringing the wrath of the motoring gods down, but I do have my fingers crossed as I type:-)

Everyone said I was mad to buy a Fiat but my 2003 Stilo 1.9 JTD has been wonderful up to now. I got it at at a year old and have added over 60,000 trouble free miles to it up to now. Unlike earlier Fiats the build quality is excellent, apart from an ashtary that doesn't close and a broken glove box hinge. The 1.9 JTD engine is simply the best diesel I have driven. Economical, coupled with amazing performance for it's size and the comfort and space is great.

I would swap it tomorrow. But only for the estate car version with air con:-)
