They waited till I had passed on the Mini and ordered a new Subaru ...just last week ! Oh well gives em time to get them in and iron out the kinks :) Also gives us time to get a dealer closer than Atlanta. I know Chrysler dealers can service them but I prefer a Fiat dealership to do any warranty work if I get one!

I saw my first 500L, a giallo Trekking, in the wild this week. The woman looked so happy. I was fortunate enough to test drive two trims at our LS. But that doesn't provide a feel for living with one. The Elle, color aside, definitely makes a statement on the road.

I also saw a white Trekking. I was in my Abarth. The woman driving saw me and at the light asked me how I liked my car. After telling her it was great she said the same about her Trekking.

That is so cool ~ I dig reading friendly interactions between virtual strangers. I think it says a lot about the overall design philosophy at FIAT (and the people attracted to what said philosophy produces). Nice one!

I think with the 500L that is true. It is a unique look, unlike anything else on road in the U.S., except for the Mini Cooper.

The L is much larger than the Countryman.
