Fiats are one of the cars which will keep performing for years together and will last a lifetime. Most of the other cars will start to show age after a few years. Not the case with Fiats. We own a '02 Palio and its still so stiff without hardly any rattles, the doors still close with a confirming thud. We were planning to sell it but not anymore. Will be changing the air intake it and later an engine remap as well .
