Sounds like something I would do :D

Is it a Grande Punto ?, if so the values should hold better so it should not be too bad a deal.

Theres allways voluntary termination if he gets bored (depending on the contract).

Well, not really. He could always pay the finance off with a loan or on a credit card, then sell the car.

The funny thing is, I advised him to get a low interest loan and buy a car, then if he got bored he could change car a LOT easier, plus we wouldn't be penalised for paying it off early.

TBH if I was in the market for a new car, even if I had the cash in my hands to pay it off in full I would take an interest free finance if offered. Also if I buying a new car I would be looking to keep it for atleast 3 years so that wouldn't be a worry.

Er assuming it is a new punto then its actually quite nice.................Cheap to run and insure.

Much as I love the new Punto, I have to say this - in 1.2 form, it ain't too clever. It can barely get out of it's own way with the meager power and torque it puts out, and you end up working it so hard that it a) chews fuel and b) breaks rather more often. The GP only really works IMO with the diesel engines.

Strange how you never see any old Fiats around, I wonder why that is? :)


*Glances out the window*

Can see a couple - A blemish-free Uno (must be about the only one mind!) and a Strada. Depends on how you define old, as my 6 year old Seicento is outside as well.
