Hey guys. I just joined and am happy to be a part of this forum and have a few general questions about the Fiero. I am looking to buy my first Fiero very shortly. I have been looking for months at Fieros that are for sale. I plan to use this car as just a fun summer car and probably wont rack up a huge amount of miles each year. I'm leaning towards something in the 10000 to 20000 mile range with a manual transmission. I'll be looking to spend up to $10,000 or possibly a little more. Unfortunately I don't know anyone who owns a Fiero. When I talk to people about this car, I keep hearing that the car is junk, some catch on fire, and always need fixing. I wanted to ask you guys what your personal experiences have been since buying yours. I'm hoping to hear good news. I've seen some really sharp 84's with super low miles. Does it really matter whether you go with the 4 speed manual from 1984 or go with the 5 speed that came in the 85's and up, or the v-4 vs the v-6. Personally I seem to like the look of the Formula the best, but they seem to be very hard to find and a little more than I want to spend. Basically I'm just looking for some advice on what to look for when buying one. I would really be happy with any model of them, as long as the car does not require a small fortune to maintain. I mentioned I was looking for something with low miles with a very clean exterior and interior. I would think if you bought something with those specifics, that you would be ok except for routine maintenance. Any advice for a new buyer would be very much appreciated. Thank you.
