Mileages
« on: June 10, 2014, 12:29:02 pm »
Hi all

My 10 plate A500 is now at 53k and hasn't really missed a beat, even with an Angel Tune at 40k. It's due a new exhaust backbox, but that's not uncommon I hear.

Wondered what other mileages were out there, and if your reliability experience had been as good as mine?

    Haha. It sounds bad, but in reality the only "real" pain in the bum was the clutch pedal which Abarth just washed their hands of and didn't want to know which I felt was a bit out of place. And for that reason alone I'll never buy Abarth/ Fiat again.

    The rest has been easily sorted. Helps having an old man as a mechanic mind  :whistle:
