I like these rally cars, I really do. But the normal car this rally one represented was a hateful POS. My ex had one of these, and I hated it with a passion. It was low mileage, pristine really, but horrible. It took you from A to B and as such it was fine, but I haven't driven a worse car in my life. At the time my… » 10/25/14 10:29am Yesterday 10:29am

They sell these Fiats with a manual transmission and obviously diesel engine options. They're certainly frugal and useful.

I can get everything a regular North American can get, this is a free market. » 10/22/14 11:25am Wednesday 11:25am

Although I've never seen one in real life, they apparently are available in Germany, in very limited numbers. I found one on mobile.de. €6k asking price for a not even 4 year old vehicle with a mere 11k km (7k miles). A price that's probably optimistic. The owner tells us it's too big for him and his mom, and that he… » 10/22/14 10:24am Wednesday 10:24am
