My friend Jon and I went for a test drive in a FIAT 500 coupe two years ago, and I fell in love with the car. I've wanted one ever since. I'd been driving the same car since 2002, and it was finally time to replace it. So three weeks ago, my wife and I went to the local FIAT Studio and picked out a white FIAT 500c with red top and red/white leather interior.
Every time I see this car it brings a smile to my face. And it has completely transformed my ride to and from work. It's now a treat to go to work--I put the top down, the air conditioning on, and play my iPhone through the USB port. Driving this car makes me so happy! You just can't be in a bad mood when driving this car!
Needless to say, Jon readily admits that he's VERY jealous!!!
My FIAT 500 LOVE began January 2013; however, my initial deal on FIAT 500 ownership fell through. Finally, on July 16 I received an email from my lender that simply stated, "Try again!" So I did. Within an hour I had my FIAT 500 Sport black beauty. Fate? YES! While reading the booklet to familiarize myself with my new car, I came upon the "do not lose key code" and I was shocked! The key code for my FIAT 500 is my father's birthdate. He has been gone for 19 years, but he's still making sure I deserve the very best!
I ordered my 2013 FIAT Abarth Cabrio on the first day FIAT was accepting orders... a car not yet built, at a price not yet specified, from (in my case) a studio not yet open! I was one of their first orders and now I am owner of one of the first Abarth Cabrios sold in Michigan.
Though I had long longed for a FIAT, I could not decide between an Abarth and a Cabrio, and there was no FIAT Studio near me. Then FIAT established a Studio in Ann Arbor, MI, they gave me both Abarth and Cabrio in the same car, and released it at the time of a major birthday for me. The icing on the (birthday) cake was their newly hired FIAT specialist, whose overarching passion for all things FIAT compelled the dealer to hire her as their lead FIAT specialist.
The car continues to delight... I often walk out just to look at it!
