Fiat Brava tips
Ireland 2006. The New Year holidays have recently ended. Hope did not leave me to find a worthy replacement for the old car (Fiat Tipo 1.4i). But good luck, that’s what I was looking for. The price and the year are suitable. I made an appointment, went with a friend. Evening. Machine – Fiat Brava ESX 99, liked at first sight. Fresh design (you can’t confuse such a "back" with anything), although a little long "nose". I was pleased with the filling with electronics compared to the old model. Two pillows. The engine turned out to be frisky, quickly twists in any gear, although later it turned out that the 1.2 engine was rather weak on the slopes. Fuel consumption is normal, I can safely drive 500 miles. High maneuverability and light steering. A real city car. A bit harsh suspension. I didn’t find any more complaints. For 1999, the car was in good condition. Having settled the paperwork, I had a little doubt. I left the salon and saw a picture that I remember. Soft light from the lighting of the building fell on the car, raindrops bounced off the body and shone in each drop like a precious stone. The thought crossed my mind, it feels like I already had this car and I didn’t buy it. After that, there was no more doubt.

Fiat Brava is a car for those who love comfort and speed. Comfortable interior, optimal vnurenny volume. If the outside of the car seems small, then sitting inside you feel spacious due to the optimal shape of the body and its sufficient width. Comfortable chairs in which you do not get tired even on long trips. Smooth ride and fast acceleration. The car is especially pleasant on the track – at a speed of 150 km, a feeling of light flight. As the owner of such a car, I paid attention to such cars. Met blue, green. I have a ripe cherry Fiat – in my opinion the most successful color scheme for this model. The car is a beauty – especially on a sunny day. I drive not only on autobahns, but also on dirt roads (how else can you get there, for example, to the dacha). The trunk fits, for example, everything you need for a family vacation with tents on the seashore, including folding chairs, tends and more. At the same time, outwardly, my "bravushka" looks very elegant. The most successful color is a ripe cherry. It is better to buy a model with a 1, 6 engine, then you will feel the full power of this beauty.

Outwardly, I really like this car! We have quite a few of them on the roads. very easy to repair and maintain. for parts no more than our 10k. and now it’s not a problem to find. Consumption from 5.9 to 9.5 liters, depends on many things, of course. Gas station, city, etc. Despite the rather small volume (1.4), it is very frisky. I changed the regular rear shelf, changed the head unit, alloy wheels, tires, headlights from marey and looked now, read my review and smiled) after all, 7 years have passed since the very moment I I bought it and made a review, but there’s nothing special to add)) I drove it for 170 t.km. and not expensive. and probably here how lucky someone is and after whom you will get it, because all the problems with it, judging by the reviews, are mainly due to savings or the curvature of the masters

Hello everyone! in general, the car is good, the only drawback in my opinion is a small clearance! thanks protection for conscience, saves, and so the pipe! pleases with a spacious interior, you just can’t compare with our cars in the back, people sit and wonder, it looks like a small car, but they sit normally. You can also load a lot in the trunk, it’s a pity that 60 by 40 seats don’t fold, it would be super. if anyone knows where can I pick up this car, tell me, I will be grateful!

In principle, a normal car, I took it for $4450, of course, something had to be corrected, as in any car. One big disadvantage is the rather high cost of spare parts for a car of this class, but I think it’s better than driving an old AUDI or BMW from the 80s.

AKSAKAL: The result of more than 6 years of operation: a great car with an ageless design by maestro Giugiaro. Three sit back normally, in the trunk of a hatchback they transported a standard gas stove and a washing machine to the dacha without any problems. Dynamic 103 HP never fail, parking is convenient. The company service in Kyiv is not overloaded: for 5 MOTs they were always accepted on the day of the call. I see that "Doblo" is snapped up like hot cakes, and sales of "Punto" are already noticeable, so with a large number of cars, it may be more difficult to get into the service, but so far this is a problem of other popular brands. There were practically no problems with breakdowns (but in our family, due to the availability of the service Camry, the mileage of the personal Brava is small: in 6.5 years – 55 thousand km), so there is no way to judge a car with high mileage.

AKSAKAL (Kyiv): In 2001, our family purchased a silver "BRAVA", 1, 6, 103 hp. Austria, after 8 years of operation by the former owner, and after another 7 years of operation, was sold for the same 2 thousand dollars, i.e. at his 15th year. With a relatively small total mileage of 175,000 km for a large limousine, a taxi driver bought it and drove it for a long time. So, Kroma convinced us, and when choosing the next car, I also listened to the reviews of Europeans (the Brava car, as a , won the 1996 Car of the Year competition"), and we purchased the Brava for $ 9,500. In short: a nice and unfading design from Giugiaro, a dynamic 16-valve engine, a roomy interior and a trunk that very accurately includes a gas stove or a washing machine when transported to the dacha. Contrary to the skepticism of many motorists regarding the “fragility” of the Fiat, the cost of unscheduled repairs turned out to be even less than that of the owners of “unkillable Japs” of the same age. Recently they thanked the brave Brava for the wonderful service and sold it for almost the same amount as they bought in 2001. And they bought the newest model of 2008: the black Bravo (not to be confused with the namesake – the old coupe model 1996-2001 "Bravo")., sports model TURBO-JET with an engine capacity of 1.4 liters. gives out as much as 150 hp to the mountain. This is a fighter with super design from the same maestro Giugiaro. Let’s go and enjoy! It is very nice to have your face in the crowd, that is, in a traffic jam.
1. Change the timing belt every 50,000 km (the belt spins in traffic jams, but there is little mileage), otherwise you can harm the motor2. Refuel with normal 95-m gasoline and the correct working fluids exactly according to the instructions: 10W40 Selenia oil, brake. Tutella liquid, etc.3. Spare parts for old cars are available at disassemblies (so, for example, I easily bought a rear headlight – my wife damaged my own when parked).
