Consumer reports has listed Which Car Brands Make the Best Vehicles? Fiat comes out last.

Worst Overall Brand: Fiat

They then went on to say:

The 500X is stylish and has a number of available safety features, but had a rather mediocre performance in our testing. This subcompact SUV shares its platform with the Jeep Renegade, which had one of the lowest predicted-reliability scores in our survey.

Coming out on top in the Best Subcompact SUV market was the Subaru Crosstrek. The worst vehicle in the segment, it was named the Fiat 500X

Totally disagree with this report from the US. Have had my 1.4 turbo 180hp 9-speed auto for 12 months now with no problems. Very happy with it. Is very comfortable and handles very well. You have to allow some time for the ZF auto to adjust to your driving style - I have been told to allow up to 500kms. Maybe the problems mentioned in the Consumer Report were specific to US engine/transmission combinations.

Correction: power figure quoted above should read 170hp.
