They've been planning Alfo Romeo's return for years now it seems... haven't heard any news on that though and I'm not holding my breath just yet.Just wanted to know what everyone's thoughts are on Fiat coming to the states as part of the Chrysler deal. I am beginning to like that. I hope that Alpha Romeo will come back too that will give people more cool options for cars that are fun to drive.
The clunker program showed people want a reputably-reliable car... the general population doesn't know anything about Fiat and I have a feeling sales would be less than stellar in this economy for a company with essentially no reputation at all.Bad timing? I believe is now or never.
Will this fiat float your boat ?I guess Alpha is coming this year to the states. I do remember there were a few spiders around in the 80's always thought they were cool. Like the look of them it would be nice to see some alternatives. Did not see any fiats that woudl float my boat though.
+1Fiat are MUCH better than they used to be 15 or 20 yrs ago. I'm glad they're coming over. Having said that, Mercedes couldn't get Chrysler up to scratch and BMW gave up on Rover in the UK (in the 90s). Not a great track record for European companies taking over failing auto makers.
