Fiat Punto Hatchback
  • 1. You can fit three in the back without too much sweat - mighty impressive for a supermini
  • 2. Clutches can break after as few as 40,000 miles, especially if the car has spent most of its life on city streets
  • 3. Make sure you check the power steering system, as it has been known to fail
  • 4. Listen to the suspension on a test drive. It can rattle even on low-mileage models
  • 5. The car's cooling and heating system can be a weak point, so check it out thoroughly before you buy
