cost is acceptable if you dont go back to the authorised dealer for servicing after the complimentary servicing

parts cost more than Jap cars but its normal for conti 

just buy parts from stockist and find your own mechanic ... but not many know how to service bravo

Bravo is a very well rounded car, if you are looking at the 120bhp Auto Tjet version.

 

Pick up is good, Fuel consumption is not bad. (Few of my friends driving Bravo have achieved about 14km/l, with heavy footed driving)

 

Using the platform of Fiat Stilo, Fiat Bravo performs relatively well in corners and tight space (Can be further enhanced with strut bars).

 

Italian cars always invite "stares", in a good way.

 

You will be consumed by the Italia passion.

 

(-)

 

As usual, Fiats are quirkys piece (with unique tantrum for sensors, electrical and oil leaks), however with patience, it can be overcomed.

 

Be prepared to spend a bit to fix it up, if you are buying second hand.

 

Local agents and stockist are not afraid to make money from you on the parts and labour. This can be offset by ordering overseas and paying a labour to the workshop here.

 

Limited workshop to service this hatch.

 

Summary:

 

I will get it for the drive feel, uniqueness and style. On the hindsight, be prepared for the quirkyness.

Don't worry... :)

  1. Change the battery once a year.
  2. Take good care of your selespeed gearbox.
  3. The rest will be pretty ok!

Is a fun car!!

Passion from your heart to your head to your car!!

Hi,

 

a bravo owner here. not a common car, but the drive puts a smile to my face.

 

it does have its hiccups here and there, but its an Italian! It sometimes craves for your attention.

 

Besides that most problem so far is due to weak battery. Other issues, regular servicing should do the trick.

 

We have quite a close group of fellow Bravo drivers althou small, but we share readily on where to go for servicing or buying for parts.

 

But your choice to buy or not ... :)

fiat bravo is a nice car.. will be good if there is a face lift on the interior..


Doesn't mean you drive a faster car, you can travel at 70kph on a clear lane 1 with a train of cars behind you...

 

that is what lane 2 is for..

Seat on my friend's pre-owned bravo tjet before.

The transmission is a tad lethargic and the car doesn't punch through the roads like a normal turbo car. Perhaps it's due to the weight or poorly maintain transmission.

One thing I notice is the ultra noisy road noise but I suspect it's the tires.

Otherwise it's a nice spacious ride..

Is your friend's ride a manual or auto transmission?

Auto. I presume it's based on the semi auto transmission like Alfa's selespeed. It engages slow or doesn't engage at times. I told my fren to have it checked.
