2004 FIAT Panda

2004 FIAT Panda

The Panda has been in the news because a Chinese company made a knockoff and then tried to sell it in Europe! You can guess that didn’t go over well.

For the past two decades plus, Fiat cars and trucks have not been sold in the USA. Their reliability and corrosion problems gave them a very poor reputation. Many of the problems may have been due to the long distance highway driving that Americans do, and our habits of being less attentive to maintenance.

But, Fiat still made cars we never saw, and sold them all over! Since they will soon be available again, I thought I would scan some advertising for Fiat models never seen in North America. Most of these are small cars that filled the market niche that the current 500 does.
