Most bang for the buck !!!

This is a very well designed car that’s going to provide a lot of fun. Everyday tasks are more fun in this roadster. Looking forward to some vacation runs in this car too.

2020 Fiat 124 Spider...can't stop smiling

I have this as a weekend fair weather car and it does not disappoint! I am 6'1" and fit like a glove. I bought the "basic" Classica to be as close to "pure" as possible. Don't want heated stuff or high end accessories for this vehicle. We own an a220 and a X3 so if I want fluff I can get it. For me this is like having a reliable vintage Spider with new Italian styling and safety features. Add on a 8/85,000 mile warranty I got from Zeigler Auto Group CHEAP and I plan on driving this like I stole it... I've owned Z3's, Z4's and 8-10 year old Porsche Boxster(s) and this car is more fun to drive. I'm not looking for status...I'm looking to drive. If thats what your looking for then...this car is for you too!

Spaghetti & sushi - served to perfection!

I first saw the Fiat 124 Spider in a coffee shop parking lot. It looked vaguely like a 3/4 scale Aston-Martin DB and, oddly, a Miata. It was lust at first sight! Within a week, I had my own midnight blu Lusso with tan leather seats. Got three dates that week! Wonderful fun...I drove through town for days, top down, cackling. The perfect gentleman’s GT, perfect for winding mountain roads. Not a fast car, but the handling is crisp and dead-on. Just enough ummph to kick the back end out, but in a mannerly way. The turbo boost comes late and fades fast, but it’s sweet spot is the 40-80 mph band - exactly where you want that power on public roads. Only complaints are it’s hard to get in and out of...you basically have to fall butt first into the driver’s seat. But, once you’re in, everything is exactly where it needs to be. Not many frills...but a banging Bose sound system (in my Lusso) and seat heaters...ya gotta have those during Colorado’s winters. I love driving this car knowing I get more fun per hour than the BMW z3 owners and Porsche pretty boys while paying go one-quarter the price. Yeah, it’s got a Miata chassis. Cool! Tried and tested low-budget performance. But the Italian styling and turbo engine, plus the FIAT name give it a flavor all its own. Get one before they’re gone!!!

This car is fun, fun, fun

Great styling, great perfomance, great quality. This car is a traditional two seat roadster. There is nothing like it out there when you get on a winding country road.

Most Fun Car I Have Ever Owned!

A smile a minute, whenever I'm in it! That would be a fair summation of what the majority of 124 Spider owners would say about this wonderful vehicle. For background, we have owned our Spider for 13 months now and have slightly over 13,000 trouble-free miles on it. The 124 is made by Mazda in the same factory that produces the MX-5. FIAT provides the engine, the suspension tune, and the exterior styling, making this car a beautiful combination of Japanese reliability and sexy Italian styling. The cars.com short take states wind noise is an issue but it is a convertible - what do you expect? They fail to note, however, that the 124 has more noise dampening than the MX-5, thus has less road/wind noise than a MX-5. We use our car as a daily driver and to sport about when not commuting. It is a blast to own and gets more comments than any car I have previously owned. People love it! Based on comments from multiple taller club members, if you are 6'3" or under, you can fit in the cockpit. Less than 6'1" or so, you won't feel cramped. I am 5'11" and have to push the seat forward several clicks to reach the pedals comfortably; so while the Spider is smallish overall, there is more legroom than one might think. If you are looking for an affordable, reliable roadster that is insanely fun to drive and fits right in with much higher priced vehicles, check out the 124!
