The Fiat Punto’s main market rivals are the VW Golf and the Fiat Punto. Despite such stiff competition it still beat them both to the European Car of the Year award in 1995. It has a reputation for being cheap to repair, with parts readily available. This has made it popular in the amateur motorsport world, where many contenders maintain their own vehicles.
The Punto is now called the Punto once again. After a brief change to the Fiat Grande Punto, and a stint in some markets as the Punto Evo, Fiat have now dropped all the bells and whistles and reverted back to plain old Punto. Why not as well, after over 8.5 million cars have been sold, popularity clearly isn’t something the little hatch is lacking.
Common and potential problems of the Fiat Punto
The Fiat Punto has been a common site on the UK’s roads since it’s introduction in 1993. Since then it has seen three incarnations, with the second and third generations overlapping. The model has primarily been available as a 3 or 5 door hatchback, although there was a 2-door convertible and a 3-door van also available.
First Generation 1993-1999
The first generation Punto was a direct replacement of the Fiat Uno. It was immediately successful, and voted the European Car of the Year in 1995, just edging out the VW Polo. It was available with several different engines, a 1.1, 1.2, 1.4, and 1.6 petrol engines, as well as a 1.7 diesel engine. There was also a turbocharged 1.4 GT model available from 1995 onwards.

Second Generation 1999 – 2010
The second incarnation of the Punto saw the return of the round Fiat badge to a production car. Although it retained the familiar Punto shape the styling was greatly updated, and the interior and chassis were completely overhauled. In 2003 there was a face-lift model released. This newer version helped Fiat to comply with new regulations on pedestrian safety.
Whilst Fiat seemed to address the wiper motor failures common on the MK1, the ball joint in the wiper mechanism has now replaced it as a new problem

Several people experience leaks in the foot wells. This appears to just be water getting into the car, and nothing as sinister as the heater matrix etc.
There were also lots of owners generally complaining about how noisy they become, and the general consensus amongst enthusiasts seems to be that they are not as reliable as the mk1.
Third Generation 2005 – Present
The third Punto to be produced was named the Grande Punto. As with the second generation it was styled by Giugiaro. The Grande Punto became known as the Punto Evo after the face-lift of 2009, which saw major changes such as a new interior, front end, as well as revised rear lights.
As with the mk2, the power steering can be prone to failure. This can be a costly repair and potentially dangerous if travelling at higher speeds when the failure happens.
Many owners complained about a lack of sound proofing, causing excessive road noise.
Very few members of the owners clubs or enthusiast sites were able to reach the advertised mpg figure.
