I'd guess you are number 1 in miles on a 500 in the US!

turned 2300 miles this week. averaging 35.3 with my 6sp auto Sport. LOVE the color I chose and LOVE my 500 in general.

'reventlow', if you're passing through Indy on the way home, please drop by O'Brien FIAT. the Studio is on the southside of Indy at the Greenwood Park Mall while parts and service is at their Chrysler store just down the street. stop in and say 'hi'! :D

Update / Trade In

Post by reventlow » Fri Sep 23, 2011 12:54 am

My red Sport with 13,009 miles was getting a service at Ron Tonkin Fiat (Portland, OR) on Sept 1st. Asked salesman what it would cost to trade for a new Sport. He let me drive an automatic which was far better than I expected. We agreed on a fair cash payment and I drove away in an identical yellow Sport but with 6sp automatic plus heated seats. Car had been Adam Tonkin's demo, he is Tonkin Studio Director. 500 was pristine with 1900 miles driven. Today, Sept 23, I'm in west Texas and turned over 5000 miles. Have added a Sprint Booster from 500Madness which gives improved acceleration and has 3 settings: factory, medium, maximum. I use medium, improved throttle response, slightly higher revs for shift points. Controller is dbl side taped to console by cup holder.
