    I have basically this same car, mods included........but in the form of a Dodge Dart. I hate it. I hate this tiny little stupid engine. Its weak. It leaks oil, had to replace the valve cover gasket which is like a 1k job. Mine also has some sort of intake and whooshy noise making thing exactly like this, installed by previous owner.......and yea I dunno Im not a loud person so I feel kinda sheepish about it. Also I dgaf about manual to be honest. Also....not having working AC is a total dealbreaker for me but maybe up there in Toronto you can get away with it.

    - The thing on your dash is the Tom-Tom GPS holder (came with the car in a box, lol). - The side skirt separation was a very common issue every single time I would lift my Abarth. - Brake calipers came red. - The paint above the windshield should be black but it was extremely notorious for chipping. They used to paint them under warranty (USA) but may have opted for a vinyl wrap on yours. I owned an Abarth for 5 years and almost everything that could go wrong with the car went wrong, but it was still one of my favorite cars.

    I own one and it’s a blast every time driving it. Some tips for you: keep an eye on the engine oil these tend to eat ALOT OF engine oil. So don’t expect to go above 4000 rpm without checking every so often. Driver and passenger door handles tend to break a lot. Trunk is also another common issue with this car. The arm holder also breaks often lol. Theres probably more common issues out there but this car is still a blast to drive. O yea, the lever handle that folds the front seats, they break easily too!

    The side skirt coming off is because dealerships and tire stores are not cautious enough when jacking the car at the right lift points (very hard-to-see triangles at recommended locations). And then someone has tried to use regular glue to put it back together.

    You think it has a wastegate? Come the fuck on mate. What you were hearing was blow off valve and turbo flutter. That thing looks like it was “modded” by a teenager. Good luck, I’m assuming it’s slower than a stock one with that sick blow off valve. First mod should be returning it to stock operation with the recirculating blow off valve.

    I really wanted to buy an Abarth and just mod the hell out of it. Stock they are really hysterical to drive. There's so much to make you laugh when driving them. I swear in red with some Ferrari badges you would make more people laugh than anything. It sounds fast as hell but it's so little...it's hysterical. Little FIAT that could.

  • waffle911
    waffle911Month ago

    The wiring harness in the hatch of the 500 is a known issue. It doesn't have enough room to move inside the hatch where it feeds out into body and the wiring chafes through, causing shorts for the popper, the wiper, and the lights. I'm guessing Jakub ended up with a Fiesta ST, the direct competitor to the 500 Abarth? Or perhaps a Civic Si? Window profile didn't seem right for a GTI. Long shot guesses: Veloster, Mazda 3.

  • Gabriel Shensky

    Ok, you guys are beginning to scare me. I bought my first car just under a week ago, and it's a Fiat 500 Abarth in the exact same color scheme as this, except mine is a cabrio. I had it shipped from Florida to Michigan and I did some detailing work on it myself and just got it back from the shop. It drives like a dream and I couldn't be happier.

    My sister has an abarth and it’s got so many problems. They sound amazing and look nice but lots bad cars over all. The side skirts always come off. The doors seem to stop working from time to time. The door handles break like crazy cause there cheap plastic. The windows like to drop off the window rails. The seat likes to lock and not let u access the back seats. And the linkage cables for the shifter like to break as well. just a heads up.

And it is straight piped from Factory, so it's sounds really good
