Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Fiat 124 Spider sports?
Being an open-top, you should check the interior for water damage. The 124, like the Mazda MX-5, has a simple manual roof that’s easy to use and should be leak free. To test it, head to a local automatic car wash, sit in the car while it's being washed and have a close look at all the seals for any water seeping through.
Check the alloy wheels for kerb damage because 124s in mid-range Lusso spec and above get bigger 17in wheels that are more susceptible to kerb strike than Classica variants.
