Based on the above, if it was me it would be a Giulietta... especially if you occasionally carry more than one other adult around. On the other hand, the MiTo will be more nippy and fun, I'd imagine, although I'd have to be very convinced that the gearbox is good.
I dunno if the M32 is really that bad, or if it just happens to fail more often than other gearboxes, so gets a bad reputation, but is otherwise a "reliable" box in general overall terms.
