    What does this car say about you?

    Married with kids and too tight to buy a proper people carrier!

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

    Looks a bit odd but Wow! this is big inside.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    No - design is fantastic but Fiat build quality is what I thought it would be - rubbish. Electics are very flimsy, Very poorly designed sun roofs (they leak!) - would be better off with out them. Interior trim does not stand up well to use - especially seat covers. If you want one go in eyes open and don't pay much!

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Smaller people carrier/estate.

  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    No racing car but surprisingly nippy. Rolls a bit in the corners but what do you expect! Comfortable on the long runs and easy to get in and out of.

    What's it like to park?

    Is actually smaller than you think. End of car is at the end of rear wind screen so you know where you are. View is commanding.

  • Living with it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Old car so plenty of things have worn out Brakes etc But- clutch and flywheel very expensive!, leaking wheel cylinders, front springs snapped, door check straps, tyres. MOT failure because of split rubber boot, Leaky sun roofs. With a car this age you really need to be prepared to start replacing things on a regular basis. Though I feel some things are just shoddy equipment.

    What's most practical about your car?

    6 seats and a usable boot space - plenty of room all round onthe inside but not too big outside. All rear seats come out so it is like a van - huge space!

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    Air con is essential in a car this size.
