2017 FIAT 124 Spider

Treat Yourself to a new FIAT car this holiday

The FIAT car line-up offers a range of cute, stylish, nimble, and quick models to spruce up your commute this holiday season.

The Classic

The FIAT 500 is the most iconic member of the FIAT family, with retro-modern styling that best recalls the Italian automaker’s origins. The two-door hatchback is small and nimble, and with the right configuration, it’s far from cute. Check out the Abarth trim-level, capable of 160-horsepower if you need any convincing.

The Mover

The FIAT 500L takes the same styling of the 500 and inflates it to make room for four doors. The added legroom, headspace, and trunk room make it a great option for families or young professionals who want to do a little more than get from point A to point B in their daily driver.

The Explorer

If you’re looking for a little more performance and grip on the road, consider the FIAT 500X. The design of the FIAT 500X skews a little closer to a standard SUV while maintaining the compact size and shape that the FIAT brand is known for. Add in an optional 180-hp 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine and all-wheel drive, and you can feel confident going for a drive, rain or shine.

The Shaker

Not interested in a hatchback? Not a problem. The FIAT 124 Spider is the Italian automaker’s reincarnation of its 1966 two-seat roadster, and it’s a whole lot of fun. The FIAT 124 Spider has a 1.4-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine which puts out 160 horsepower into a well-balanced, light, aerodynamic convertible perfect for enjoying the Florida sun.

Winterizing Your Car in Winter Haven

Drivers in the Auburndale, Winter Haven, and Lakeland areas of Florida might not realize that winterizing an exotic auto or sports car, or any car, is necessary in the warm, sunny climate of Florida. After all, many of you have moved here from the frozen tundra up north (like Wisconsin!) and you think that because you no longer have to shovel snow or put chains on your tires, you no longer need to winterize your vehicle. Well, that’s not exactly true. Read the rest of this entry >>

How You Know When You Need an Oil Change from FIAT of Winter Haven

It is extremely important to regularly check your oil levels in order to ensure your vehicle is running smoothly. Engine oil lubricates the moving components of your engine. Additionally, it cleans, cools, and protects these parts, preventing your engine from seizing up. Florida drivers will often experience a buildup of gunk in their oil. Its chemical makeup will also change over time, making it far less efficient. Here are a few signs that you need an oil change from FIAT of Winter Haven.

Check the Color

When looking at the oil on your dipstick, check the coloring of it. Fresh oil should be a transparent light brown which will start turning darker over time and will eventually become thick and black. Once the oil loses its brownish transparency, it’s time to get a tune-up.

Check the Consistency

Remove a bit of the oil from the end of the dipstick and rub it between your thumb and forefinger. If you can feel grittiness and the oil is coarse, not smooth, it’s a sign that it contains too many contaminants and needs to be changed.

When Did You Get Your Oil Changed Last?

If you drive a lot or take long journeys, it’s important to keep track of how many miles you rack up. Experts used to recommend getting your oil changed every 3,000 miles, but you can go a lot longer without an oil change in today’s new cars.
