2006 Fiat Multipla
Reviewed 29 Jan 2017

The Multipla is a brilliant design - it does what it is designed for far better than anything else in the MPV market. All is wrong is the badge!! Imagine if Audi/VW or Toyota etc came out with something like this? Honda tried with the FRV but did not get the space or visibility right. From other reviews (UK based mainly), Fiat dealers don't get good press and probably have damaged the brand. Well we have owned two Multipla diesels and brought them to high mileages (167000 and 184000miles) with no serious problems. They have never left us down actually at any stage - never once failed to start or drive. The engines are pretty bullet proof - yes you will probably blank (€30) or replace (€150) the EGR valve and have to deal with a DPF at 150,000 miles plus - but that's better than most common rail diesels! Clutch and DMF will last 130,000miles plus. (By the way, FIAT developed the now universal common rail diesel and licensed it to Bosch etc to produce for other manufacturers!). The suspension will rattle and need new front wishbones or just bushes every 60,000 miles and drop links and ARB bushes and rear trailing arms every 100,000 miles. The cars are not hard to work on. Engine electrics are reliable. Yes the seat trim gets damaged by the seatbelts and the inside can get a bit tatty if abused by kids, but not excessively so. The big problem is it's looks and the polarised views that this and the fact that it has a Fiat badge brings - usually from people who havn't owned them. With over 350,000 miles on two diesel ones, I disagree, the design wins over all!!

Nice little city car but driving fast on a windy day on the m50 is no fun. Really cheap to run and maintain.

2010 Fiat 500
Reviewed 09 Mar 2016

Trendy, Retro, perfect city car. The 500 is 100% the best looking city car around. It is compact and with the 'City Steering' mode (which makes the steering wheel lighter) it is perfect for getting into tight parking spaces. It is also quite nippy for such a small car. Easy on petrol and about 35/38 euro to fill up. The boot is bigger than you would expect, fitting in a large suit case and a few bags. The only down fall of the 500 is, when you are driving on the motorway, it may be a little noisy inside. But all in all, it's comfy, easy on fuel,extremely pretty and easy to park. Perfect!
