Chevrolet Cruze review from Consumer Reports

Talking Cars with Consumer Reports #27: Models to Avoid
When you're spending your hard-earned money on a car, we think you deserve
a good one - and some models are better than others. This episode focuses
on those models we think you should avoid, presented by category. Don't
confuse this with a list of the "worst cars." Cars like the BMW 7-Series
and Ford Taurus certainly aren't among the worst cars out there, but they
are bad choices within their respective market segments.
As with the other shows, this episode will also be available through the
iTunes store and SoundCloud.

2012 Fiat 500 Review - Kelley Blue Book
FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT:
Fiat is returning to the U.S. after a 27-year absence -- a move facilitated
by its new relationship with Chrysler -- offering the diminutive 500 as its
first new offering. Combining European style and heritage with a starting
price of $16,000, the 2012 Fiat 500 bridges the gap between the sportier,
pricier Mini Cooper and the more pedestrian Toyota Yaris.

The Fiat brand returns to the US with the 500, so the guys wanted to see

comparison, we put it up against the Honda CRZ and Mini Cooper to see what
car offers the most driving fun.
2012 Fiat 500 Sport Review, Walkaround, Exhaust, & Test Drive
With the return of the Fiat brand to the states, the 500 is quite frankly,
the most important vehicle introduction if the company hopes to do well in
the U.S. Thankfully, Fiat seems to have pulled off a micro-car that
literally outclasses each of its competitors. Only the larger and more
expensive Mini Cooper has it beat but those of you in need of something
smaller than your average sub-compact should take a look at one.
