    Still ugly as hell and they clearly are not selling as you see a ton on the dealership lots but not on the road.

    As usual, Chrysler screwed the pooch on this, and owners hate these after the initial new car rush wears off. Explain to me please why we bailed these idiots out twice?

    Pop and Easy are pretty nicely priced.

    There is a whore in a poor section of chillicothe Ohio who goes by the name of dollar Debbie for obvious reasons. With deb and with Fiat, it's not good at half the price....

      Sales of Fiat vehicles in the U.S. have been tanking and FCA is making a drastic change to try and reverse this. Automotive News got their hands on documents revealing a new pricing structure that will see Fiat cut the prices on some of their models.
      The base 500 will see a price cut of $2,000 ($14,995 from $16,995). The price doesn't include a $995 destination charge. The big price cuts will come to the 500C lineup as there will now be a $1,495 difference between the cabrio and regular hardtop. A key example is the 500C Abarth which sees its price drop from $26,695 to $21,490 for 2017. Prices for the 124 Spider and 500X remain unchanged.
      A Fiat spokesman declined to comment.
