If she was ever to get rid or her car I would get her to look at the new punto. Fiats seem to have come on leaps and bounds lately.
Lots of space and very practical for daily use, Getting to big I feel tho as most in that sector have, No rubbing strips
which is a bummer for a city car.
We have had a load of Puntos, Build quality/reliability is still iffy as is the dealerships ability to rectify known faults .
But if you get a good one they serve you well, Also very competitively priced and huge discounts available which has an influence on their popularity
