Please can someone take the time respond to this Idiot.

It's a review of the Fiero, and there are so many errors in it I cant even count.

Are you kidding?!

He calls it an "Eighties Car". Well, it is a car manufactured in the 80's.

He mentions the side intake making a loud suction sound, but its modified with a small Holley side scoop.

The Fiero did come with a 5 speed, and he pokes fun at the car having only a four speed.

He dislikes, again pokes fun at the engines small HP, but it was quite a performer for its time.

I could go on and on, but the number of views he received in concerning since others will think he is accurate in his review.

One thing he can't refute, that particular Fiero looks hot!!! Just needs a 3800 SC.

In first few seconds he calls it a dangerous car (excellent crash test rating)
Claims it to be the most unbalanced GM car. ( 50 /50 what else they got)
He is just making crap up.

I made a comment about the 5-speed which came later that year for the V6. But since there are 905 comments, its a long way to scroll to read them all.

I don't know how you could be a Fiero guy and not be able to spot the made up facts. This was the laziest review ever, he had very few comments that were factual(most of his valid criticism was based on what he was experiencing in a warn out antique).

I never said I was a Fiero guy.
The worn out antique was nothing spectacular when it was new and was never meant to be.
Any Fiero guy knows that.

Your arguing a point I didn't make. The review is terrible because it was lazy with made up facts.

Wasn't arguing anything. Worn out or not a Fiero is still just a Fiero. Can't fix that.

Idiot! Is correct. Hard to find any American car in the 80's that came close to 250 HP and the handling that could back it up.

I gotta say, the Fiero is better, more comfortable, more reliable than ANY Italian car at the time....In fact, there was only one mid-engine car that was worth a damn at the time the Fiero came out- The BMW M1....The Lambos, the Ferraris, etc were uncomfortable, unreliable- and they cost thousands every year to maintain......The MR2 came out the second "Fiero year" and was a great little car- But don't EVER get hit in it......It would loose in a crash with a Dachshund!

Also, handling; We all like to think we "Know what we are doing behind the wheel"....But the truth is, most people would DIE in the first block driving a Ferrari or Porsche 911.....The "Balanced" handling the Mag writers talk about is way too knife-edge for most drivers.....The MR2, Ferraris and Lambos are very dangerous for the average driver, so the Fiero having more understeer made it the right car for the majority of buyers.....Read the R&T road test of the 1985 Fiero GT....They liked the handling and car.....later, they started bagging on the car- possibly after they received some "Advertising" money from Toyota.........

We need a coordinated attack. Everyone should agree to post, pointing out the errors and arrogance, not to mention the stupidity of this video.

Post something like --- This is a Fake Review full of errors about the Pontiac Fiero.

Already did when it was posted in the other thread. In other videos the guy asks people to suggest a project car, chime in and tell him he owes it to us to buy a Fiero after that lazy review. I'm not suggesting he'd be obligated to do it but if you spread out the comments over more videos, he's more likely to notice.

As far as 80s performance goes it is great. The fact is all cars have drastically improved. If you were prepared to spend a lot of money you could make your car out perform a lot of these newer cars. Start with a 6k+ slalom front suspension and steering rack.
The platform is there Pontiac provided the base for a good car to be built on. You don't have the platform to improve most cars.
The fiero was supposed to be a lot better. It was never designed as a commuter car it was company politics to dumb down the fiero to call it a commuter car just make it available. Pontiac only deleted the V8 to slow it down against the GM corvette.
If the ferrari 328 came with a four it would be considered crap but although similar performance it is still praised to this date.
The fiero is a great car if your prepared to build one mind you only a handful if that have ever been actually built going all out.
If you really weren't around in the 80s you won't know how crap cars really were.

I don't have plans any time soon to put 6k plus into a 500 dollar car.
I was around in the 80's and my first car was a 70 Dodge Charger 500 with a 383 magnun. Didn't want to waste my money on any 80's car.

This guy is verifying the downfalls listed by the original video, and making excuses for the rest.
Not really helping the case. Plus he doesn't have a headliner in his own vehicle which makes it hard to believe he know much of how to do anything let alone engine swaps.
