Keep in mind magazines are not always honest reviews.
I work for a company that used to do a ton of advertising, with it came a lot of pay back.
While I love my Fiero it is far from world class today or in 85 when I bought it.
For $12k it was a fun and interesting car but it was not a well sorted car.
Sorry but I have to be honest.
The 84 to 88 was heavy in steering, horrible in bump steer and a ton of understeer.
But to be fair there are more unsorted under performing sports cars than well tuned and well sorted models even at higher prices.
Many who think the Fiero is the pinnacle of handling just have never driven a well sorted car. I used to think my Fiero was a world killer till I drove well sorted car. I found it would go stupid fast even on bad roads and it made everything slow down. What I mean it made high speeds feel slow and easy to drive vs where I really had to work the fiero hard to do the same.
Now to be honest the Fiero I find fun to drive as it is not an easy car to drive fast. I find this something that makes it fun.
