Well, i decided about a year ago to keep driving mine until it stops
There is a good change i'll buy another Fiat after that, i like them
(before i had an Ford Escort and Opel/Vauxhall Corsa).
My hobbycar will stay as long as i live (if possible)
Beautyful mk1 you got there! If you manage to keep it in that condition it
will last for a "couple of years" from now. I drive a mk2 Sporting for 5
years now (it's my third Punto, bought it new) and there is a good chance i
will keep it for as long as it will last. No big problems after 5 years of
daily service! :-)
Yes, i keep it well serviced., i have been driving it for 5,5 years now
(bought it 1.5 years old).
I got some things replaced already recently, my idea: to avoid high
costs, get rid of the Punto after 5 years :-)
Main reason i keep driving it is the money: i only buy cars with my own
money, no loans.
I just started saving for the next car after this Punto :-)
I think if it's possible to keep the car normally serviced there will be no
big problems to be expected but, of course, one can never tell. Generally
Punto's are pretty reliable and rather low on running costs, at least mine
were. I drive Fiat's all my life and there was not a single one which ever
let me down once. And now and then there were pretty old ones among them
