A somewhat disappointing review by one of the UK's top motoring 'influencers'

Says a lot more about his knowledge and ability than it does the car as far as I can tell. I've never watched him before and that doesn't encourage me to do so again!

I tend to agree. Putting my own opinions of him to one side, he has got a large following and in my eyes this was an unnecessary video to release. Doesn't do anyone any favours.

It takes a bit more than a 5 minute drive to appreciate a Fulvia. The gearbox does take a bit of getting used to if you often have to engage 1st. Ultimately itís at its happiest being pushed hard on quiet twisty B roads.

His driving style and choice of road wasnít appropriate and IMO it was a pointless video.

S3 indicators sound very complicated.

Fulvia 3 indicators same as S2..... I think the self cancelling mechanism was not set up correctly, and part of the throttle problem could be due to the Pedal rollers which over 50 years get sticky (affects all Fulvias) and improved by fitting mall ball bearing in place.

Who is this guy? To take a random car out for a run is not representative. Fulvias are the most delightful cars to drive if properly maintained.

He reviews a lot of cars, mostly more modern stuff. I quite like his videos, but he has this thing of avoiding doing research before pronouncing on a vehicle so as to avoid undue influence by previous reviewers. Sometimes that's fine, because he knows enough about it anyway, but on this video I think it just makes him look uninformed. The car is clearly not well set up, so he should have done what he did when he tried an Integrale the first time around, and gone back for a second go when it was working as it should.
