Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Abarth 595 hatchback?

The Abarth 500 is a performance car, so check for accident damage. Poor bodywork repairs could hide all sorts of problems later in the life of the car, so get an HPI check done because it will let you know if the car has been written off by the insurance company at any point in its life.

If you’re in need of further reassurance, then the AA and RAC offer pre-purchase inspection services that involve a trained inspector viewing your potential purchase, for a fee, and will point out any potential issues with it.
