Editor's Overview

Derived from Mazda's splendid MX-5 Miata roadster, the 2017 Fiat 124 Spider sports a Fiat-designed turbocharged engine and a reworked exterior that recalls the classic 1960s' Fiat Spider. With a comparatively comfortable ride and quiet cabin, the modern Spider is a joyful sports car well-suited for the kind of wind-blown adventures that inspire otherwise practical car buyers to choose convertibles.

Incredibly good looking and fun to drive. Not one single problem since delivery. Good safety features: blind spot monitoring, rear hazard warning, great brakes. Right out of the dealers lot it got better than advertised highway mileage that has improved slightly over the two years that I have owned the 124 spider. Around town its gas mileage is ok, but not great. What could be better?

When a car stops in a short distance and keeps its driving direction stable, as well as its ability to maintain a certain speed when driving down a long slope, it is called the braking ability of a car. The braking performance indexes of automobile mainly include braking efficiency, stability of braking efficiency, directional stability and braking process.

It is hard to even find a local place to get the oil changed due to the special filter.

I like the look of it, the heated seats, the drop top. I don't like the cost of repairs. It is so small that it is hard to clean the inside. I love the power of the engine. I love the color.
