2013 Fiat 500 Pop review

Back in November of 2014, I uploaded a review of my Fiat 500C Pop on CarAdvice. At that point I’d had the car a little over a year (purchased new in October 2013) and had covered approximately 19,000km. For the most part, I don’t intend on going over the things I covered in that initial review again here. If you want to read it, you can here...

2016 Fiat Ducato LWB/mid Review

This is my 2nd Ducato. First was the 2.3L which had plenty of power but the 3L has even more and drives like a car but with better driving position. One problem with the 2013 Ducato was the rear door stays which held electric cabling for heated rear windows and central locking, these over time break down and cause intermittent central locking on the rear doors, this has been addressed on the 2015 model and is no longer a problem...

2015 Fiat Panda Lounge Review

I bought my Fait Panda as a city runabout, a job that it performs really well. The twin air turbo motor is a real torquey engine and is able to get you away from the lights as quickly as engines four times the size. The interior is very spacious, I'm 193cm tall and have plenty of head and leg room in the drivers seat, the back seat is pretty flat and unsupportive but as the back seat is only used for short city trips, it's not an issue for me...
