    Default Fiat Uno???

    I'm was looking for a used Daewoo Racer when a car dealer
    show me a Fiat Uno saying this it's quite newer(2001)then Daewoo(1993) and less used. I've heared about it's low resale value, parts availability and engine sound.
    Despite all, I like it but worried about it's fuel consumption and some major problems those cant' be fixed.
    Kindly tell me;
    *Uno's Avarage fuel consumption (kms/1liter)
    (Is it affordable?)
    *Any major fault???
    (as some ppl say it's fuel gauge can't b repaird when it go out of order and overheat when u run AC in Traffic Jam)

    (*)ONLY those should comment who have Fiat Uno, or have ever experienced with it!

    Car is good but its too technical for majority around us so in the end its up to you. All these things you have mentioned are mostly myths which have cure.

    @Prince

    FIAT dealership is n I-9 on the road which goes from dry port towards I-10 java hotel

    Routine mainetnance is not abig issue, if something major goes wrong then it can be problematic.

    And average is more or less around 14 in city for a reasonable car.

    Token for a Lahore number Fiat UNO at this time is around 7,500/- and in ISlaambad it is 4,348/-

    Out of these, 4000 is withholding tax which can be claimed in your tax return (if you file one)

    Thanks a lot for so useful information!
    Any other advise you think better for me? because I'm buying my first car! Another guy tell me "million of people are driving this car in Europ,SouthArica, Brazil and Israel, so what's wrong with you, as you're getting so newer and strong car in so low price?"

    @PrinceSultan,

    Spectra have already replied to some of ur quiries.

    As far as my own experince is concern I m quite satisfied with its performance as it is best value for money in 200K range. However the increasing price of Diesel Fuel are not in favor of Diesel cars but true diesel lover didnt bother & still prefer them on CNG.

    The fuel consumption per liter is ~14 in City & ~19 on Highways (still economical than Petrol).

    But as u r new rider & i assume u havnt much technical knowledge about cars specilally diesel so i will not recomend u for this.

    Dont buy that crap if you are not fond of spending your afternoons in workshops or garages. The things which you have mentioned are absolutely right and apart from that it also has issues with foundation, clutch and electricals. Built quality is crap, you'll cry if you bought that car. Imranbhatti has given you the right advice, DONOT buy the car if you are not a DIY type of guy or if you intend to keep it as your only car. Though it can be a good project car to experiment with and to beat the crap out of its cheap a$$

    We bought one brand new in 2001 for more than 600,000 and sold it or you must say got rid of it (to be precise) an year later for 280,000
    What have you been grateful for today..?
