    What does this car say about you?

    Practical, considerate of passengers and helpful. People might scoff its quirky appearance but I have the last laugh I'm afraid.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They think it's quirky but they are forever borrowing it for furniture removals etc.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Yes, yes, yes. Most practical car on the road - full stop.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    A 2010 Fiat Multipla diesel with low mileage and in the same colour we have at the moment - Indie Ivory - so the dirt doesn't show. Best most futuristic looking car on the road - and will go on being so. THANK YOU FIAT.

    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    August 2008

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Good price and decent part-exchange.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Best car/van combination anywhere. Best visibility with train carriage size windows all-round. Two rows of 3 ADULT seats will comfortably seat 6 grown men with ample leg and headroom for all plus an honest 40 mpg if driven sensibly. Handles beautifully and with back seats removed has carried a full dining room suite. High driving position gives magnificent views for all six passengers. Plenty of torque and acceleration from 120 hp diesel.- all this in quiet and comfortable environment. Only down side - they stopped manufacturing them in 2010. I will definitely buy another with lower mileage when the time comes.

    What was the dealer like?

    Friendly yet business-like. Delivery in 2 weeks.
