The 500L is my 2nd Fiat. I traded my 500 Sport in because I needed a larger size to be able to fit a baby seat in the rear. I've owned my 500L for about 19 mos and at 28k, I'm being told by Fiat, the brakes are going bad and to replace all 4 brake pads & rotors. The rear brake pads are designed thinner and these are the ones that are worn. I've owned 9 brand new cars in my lifetime and NEVER, EVER did I have to replace brakes & rotors with this low mileage. The dealership is offering 10% discount, whoopee! I do all highway driving. Again, I've driven the same path and operated the vehicle the same as all my other cars and this has never been an issue. Fiat, I may have to go back to Honda! It's so disappointing because I love the 500L Trekking, but I'm not going to be replacing brakes &... (more)

The Fiat 500 L is the larger version of the regular Fiat. It is also better than the Mini Cooper by comparison. Small car, very practical altogether. I would definitely recommend the Fiat 500L. This is a very nice car.
Story
I was in Times Square in New York City. I was able to find parking in a very small spot. Also some garages give me a discount for parking since the car takes up so little space.
Pros
This car is good on gas. A whole tank will last you two weeks easily. This car is also small. Easy to park and maneuver. Despite this car being small, it also has a lot of room. The rear seats fold allowing storage and transport. Four full sized adults can comfortably fit in this car. Handling in all weather is pretty good.
Cons
This car is expensive to maintain. All parts are imported from Europe for this car. Please make sure that the car is under warranty. Electronical problems happen with this car. Also, it's small, so do not get near a large truck, you will feel the vibration.
