I saw an article in a car magazine two years ago talking about the relaunch of the FIAT 500. I fell in love with it. I cut the picture out of the magazine and hung it on the wall in my office. I started searching the web and read up on everything I could about the car. A few months later, when the studios started opening, I drove two hours to one to test-drive a 500—and I loved it even more!

Finally, about a few months later, I was enjoying my two-hour drive back home in my very own FIAT 500. I named him Enzo and I was the only person in my area for almost a year to have one. We got a lot of attention at first because not many people in my town have seen a new FIAT 500. The greatest part is that everyone who knows me calls my car Enzo. He has a personality of his own!

I have always been a practical person—sometimes to the point of boredom. When my 15-year-old sedan was beginning to show its age, I knew I needed a new car. I saw the FIAT 500 in a public display area surrounded by velvet ropes. I don't know what came over me, but I was compelled to cross the velvet barricade and sit in this beautiful automobile I swore was calling my name.

I am now the proud owner of a mocha latte FIAT 500 and love every moment I get behind the wheel! I've evolved into a liberated, sassy, adventurous person since my FIAT purchase—always ready for wherever the roadway leads. I've been told the car was tailor made for me and my personality. Who knew all of this pent-up zest for life was stifled by being overly practical? I LOVE my “Bella Macchina.” Viva sempre!!

This past February, my 10-year-old son and I participated in the Florida Gumball Rally, a two-day driving event across Florida. We had a chance to get to know great people from different states and visit awesome places across Florida, but best of all, I spent valuable time with my son while driving the best car I’ve ever owned, my 2012 FIAT 500C.

    Fiat or not to Fiat I purchased my Fiat 500L in Oct. 2013. I love the interior room and way the car handles. The only problem I have had is that when parts are needed for the car, it takes months. I have needed a glove compartment box part and have gotten the wrong part twice, my glove box fell apart after the 2nd week of purchase in Oct. 2013. I am still waiting as of 7/10/14 for the correct part. 2 dealerships have been involved Fiat of Sawgrass in Tamarac FL and Melbourne Fiat in Fl. I had moved from S, fl to Brevard county, Now my running light has gone out and I am cringing to see how long that will take. Is it really worth it? It seems there are a few bugs that needs to be worked out. I had purchased another Fiat days before this one I own now but as I pulled out of the car dealership lot I noticed the AC was not working properly!! They stated the new never driven car would be a few weeks in the shop , I turned that one back in and got a different one. I really do not like not having a CD player in the car and am kicking myself for not choosing one with one in it. So yes I do love the car but I think I should have waited.
