Overall reliability

one remote key only ! , no front parking sensors, no blind spot mirrors on the top model

Negatives
1.4 petrol needs a turbo.
The windscreen scuttle allows water to go onto the alternator by design.
Very thin twin sliding side doors that could have been made squarer for easier access,
No ultrasonic alarm sensors in the front or rear.
Specify the extra remote key at £60 when ordering otherwise it will cost you £290 from a dealer afterwards !
Blind spot mirrors a must and missed badly from a safety point of view.
No xeon headlight option or led interior light option
No front parking sensors, not even an option
Folding mirrors and cigarette lighters need to have a permanent 12 volt supply to them
Expensive for extra warranty and servicing package - every 2 years for servicing and does not include an annual oil and filter change that you have to pay for if wanted / needed.
Mudflaps, full sized spare wheel, uprated alternator, extra key all cost extra on top models too
Fan heater speeds noisy in the cab and aircon needed otherwise it gets stuffy in winter in it
No DAB radio and sat nav is not built in - a stick on unit
Passenger "in seat" storage useless once a seat cover is applied
Fiats customer service in Italy is a problem to deal with and you need to escalate any complaints to get a "satisfactory" resolve with them.
Floor anchorage points useless if you ply line the floor as they are covered
Totally Unfinshed glossed paintwork in the rear

Positives ,
Absorbs road bumps very well,
Very quiet petrol engine,
Stylish to look at.
Great vision,
Lots of front cubby holes,
Two one touch electric front windows,
Rear wheel arches give very little intrusion into cab
Big lift up tailgate for easy access

Cost plays a key role in whats missing either as standard or as options available.
The sliding side doors are so thin you can see the internal weldings in the sun and spoil the sleek side look.
The petrol model definitely needs a turbo. Good value for money but I feel this will reflect in poor future resale values.
The build quality needs addressing, mine has 5 issues from new straight from the factory all a result of a lack of quality control and workmanship pride.
