Every new Fiat comes with a three-year warranty, while used Fiats bought from an official dealer carry a minimum 12-month warranty. The company offers a wide variety of finance, lease and hire-purchase options.
Founded back in 1899, Fiat manufactured its first vehicle – the 4 HP – the following year . Although it translates as “Let it be done” in Latin, the name Fiat is actually short for Società Anonima Fabbrica Italiana di Automobili Torino.
