    I feel your pain.
    My first car was a fiat. The tax wasnt too bad, but the reliability of the car was awful.

    Tesla Model S - NOK425 which is dirt cheap for car tax in Norway as even a small Fiat 500 cost NOK2995 to tax each year.

    oh really? I just saw the FIAT in your profile pic, and thought I'd write that...

    Interesting thing about FIAT, the company that owns FIAT also owns ferrari...hehehe.

    Although you're actually right, the car is pretty damn unreliable...don't know how they do that....somehow all european car companies either make reliable very expensive vehicles or cheap but extremely unreliable ones....they should learn from the japanese...

    you never really realize how reliable these cars are until you buy a non-jap....you just take the reliability for-granted...there's a reason why toyotas are so popular in the third world....they just need fuel to run, no expensive workshop visits every 6 months....

    Well I wouldnt know about any other cars, the Nissan Micra was courtesy of my parents (1st car) so it holds a special spot in my heart.
    But thats what my dad said about the car, and he was proven correct. It honestly is solid and reliable even with me driving it (new driver) and I know how new drivers tend to wreck their cars lol

    Yeah, i had a fiat punto as my first car (w reg- i got rid of it 4 years or so ago now). Never again with the amount of trouble i had. Everything went wrong in the 6 months i had it before i had enough and got rid. The head gasket went, the ecu blew up and took the coil packs with it, the airbag warning light came on permanently and wouldnt go away. And thats just the stuff i can remember.

    I used to have a nissan micra as well (i got the micra after the fiat). I loved that car and regret getting rid. It was bomb proof, it was that reliable.
    Since getting rid of the micra ive had hyundais (im on my second hyundai now). They are korean and they are reliable as well.

    '97 Golf TDI estate. Fairly sure it's over £200/year, but it only cost me £800 to buy so I can't really complain! I get 300-400 miles of city driving out of it for about £55 too, which lasts me around a month. Very reliable too, considering it's almost 20 years old.
