I know we have (or have had) a few 500 Abarth owners here on Oppo, so I was hoping to get some feedback on reliability, hopefully from any of you that have owned yours for a while and possibly out of warranty.

I’ve been looking for a winter beater now that I’m up in MI, and it seems like used Abarths are sitting at $10k and below, putting them on the list of possibilities. However, I’d most likely be looking at a 2013 model with a few miles, likely putting it out of warranty; I’m decently handy with a wrench, but since I’ll be relying on it during the winter, I don’t really want something that keeps breaking on me...

Any insight is greatly appreciated.
