Hi guys,

Does anyone own an Abarth? Share you're opinions if so, please?

You mean a 2012 cinquecento Abarth?
The ones for US market are built in Mexico, I suppose and they're VERY better than italian ones. I can tell you nothing more than this: BEWARE of european manifactured cars: factories are in East Europe with low cost labor (and very low quality!)

Thank you, and yes I am referring to North American ones. Let's see if I can remember correctlty. I believe the C510 transmission is made in Verona Italy, Engines in Dundee Michigan, and they are all assembled in Mexico as you say.

I am hoping to obtain a 2013 this summer. Following some of the forums, you can imagine there are many posts on the negatives, but also many who are quite pleased with the cars.

I am in need of something much better on gas than my Dodge Ram at 11-12 mpg.

Insurance seems reasonable from a quote I called for.

One funny thing is the clocks do not seem to keep time well....where have I heard that before, hehe.

Thanks again ducapaso :thumbup:

A good car, like all the FIAT runabouts.
