The car is itself an anti-thief system

That is probably the ugliest car produced in recent history. At least in the European market.

It may be a practical car though. Some say Fiat is an underrated brand, it has a bit of an image of an unreliable car brand, though others counter that. I've never owned or driven a Fiat.

I've owned a Toyota, Peugeot, Renault & Hyundai. I find German cars overpriced. When shopping for my current car I found out a fully equipped Hyundai or Renault would cost the same as a no frills no luxury Volkswagen. And people complain about the high cost for maintenance / repairs / services at VW dealers. I have no experience there though. Official dealers are always more expensive than a general garage.

I can relate. The maintainance costs of my Opel are considerably higher than it was in case of my previous Suzuki.
E.g. annual check are 90 € vs. 300 €. The Suzuki was smaller but the differrence is noticeable anyways

If it's too expensive, you should think about doing it by yourself, it's a good alternative and it's not that hard!

i'd say that Americans and Koreans still hold the ugly record in recent history:

Well, that's art! Multipla is among 10 modern non-sport cars, which will become classics very soon, according to specialists, much sooner than currently produced family Mercs, Beamers, Opels, VW's and so on. Multipla is one of its kind and I would not compare it to truly ugly cars such as mentioned Ssang Yong. I'd rather said that it would had been drawn with passion by an extraordinary creative team of designers, just about as creative as Picasso was. And, well, I am obviously, proud member of 2 Fiat Multipla's clubs, as, at the same time, among couple of other cars, I own Multipla I treat her as if she was a pet

The second one, at least, could be popular among funeral services though.

Greetings from Monticello, Utah.

I have never seen any other natural landscape that impressed so much as the rock formations of Canyonlands, it's absolutely surreal over here.

I would say, you're crazy, but I always have had Saab cars, and normal people say they are ugly but I think they are nice... so I know exactly where you come from

Found a picture of the day GTAV came out and I went to buy a copy and the road was blocked by a tree.

Try explaining driving around with an axe in your car when you get pulled over by the police

Once I had to bypass a tree over a corn field. Later on I lost the exhaust pipe.
