Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Fiat Stilo hatchback?

Just when you thought a used Stilo was looking attractive, you have to worry about its reliability. And, it is a worry, so make sure you give any car a really thorough check.

Look out for signs of water leaking into the boot, because it can be hard to work out the source of the problem and put it right. Then, check that the air-conditioning works, because faults are common and repairs can easily top £500. Minor electrical items such as window motors can fail, too.
