Editor's Overview

The slick and sassy 500 anchored Fiat’s 2012 return to the U.S. where it's become Chrysler’s small-car brand. Though similar to the Mini Cooper, the Fiat 500 costs less and gets better fuel economy, particularly with the addition of the 500e, a pure electric. The 500e expands the 500 line to eight distinct model/trim configurations for 2013, with extensive custom options.

2013 Fiat 500 Pop Virtually maintenance free 😊

I love my Fiat 500 Pop. I did not think I would like it because it is a small car but it is virtually maintenance-free as long as you change the oil regularly and do the regular maintenance. Now there are some things you have to go to Fiat for that you cannot do yourself but most Fiat dealerships are very kind and helpful and offer great discounts. You cannot beat the gas mileage. 😊 For example spark plugs, in any other engine maintenance you need to go to Fiat they specialize in your vehicle and do a really good job. I have had my car for 3 years now and have basically put no money into it other than to buy it and the regular routine maintenance.

Fiat 500 pop review! Awesome vehicle to drive.

Fiat 500 pop - it is awesome! Sporty driving, get up and go when you want it, and lots of storage space when my back seats are down. Grocery delivery folks are simply amazed at how much space there is! My fiat has been extremely reliable, and has only been in shop for routine maintenance (brake pads), tires, etc. I do have the oil changed on a regular basis and use high grade synthetic oil. Currently I even have a car seat in the backseat and it is easy for this grandma to get my tot in and out of the car seat. I would definitely recommend a fiat!

Cute fun easy to drive and park.

I have had my fiat for 3 years now. Feeling like I have had done on it is changing the oil and the headlights. I have a 5 speed manual transmission it is fun to drive. It is easy to drive and easy to park. The back seat is very small my son has a hard time fitting in the back because he is tall. It is great on gas mileage I get about 30 to 40 miles to the gallon. The only thing is the gas tank only holds about 10 gallons. I get a lot of looks when I am driving around people really like the car. It is adorable.
