    My car

    It handles well for an MPV and can be fun to drive. It has enough power and torque to drag a family and assorted junk around at the same speed as everybody else. The design is brilliant inside, 3 seats in the front to minimise back seat squabbling. Huge windows so all can see out. It's short and can fit in small (if not narrow) spaces.

    Bad things:Clutch at 34k, turbo at 45k, fragile suspension (practically all replaced under warranty), aircon leaks & strange dasboard warnings (faulty sensors?). It's a great car, but let down severely by build quality/durability problems. I'm glad we've had one,but it's not all been plain sailing.

    My car

    The massive amount of room in this car makes it so comfortable to be in and so comfortable to drive. There are lots of pockets and storage spaces. I love the styling and the layout of the interior. The offset dash gives an unobstructed view but is still easily visible.

    I have taken 5 people to the airport in my "Multi" and everybody had plenty of space. I have had so many great times in this car and fantastic days out. The size of the vehicle gives you a commanding presence on the road and the looks never fail to turn heads whilst the 1.6 engine pulls quite nicely through the rev range.

    The only bad thing is the tax. It is in one of the higher tax bands but that didn't bother me in the slightest as the Multipla is such an amazing car.

    yes....we all know people turn their heads when you drive by, maybe you really want to know some of the good reasons WHY? the answer is this car is more than what it looks like ,the drive is just perfect, the big windows allows you to see and be seen,the cabin makes the driver and the passengers feel like...."lets go for an extra mile".I'VE OWNED MINE FOR NEARLY A YEAR AND ITS BEEN A LOVELY BABY. YOU WILL NEVER SEE ONE ON THE HARD-SHOLDER.

    My car

    The looks are striking and the practicality is excellent. My daughter loves the centre front seat and the overall design of the cabin is great fun.

    The diesel engine pulls eagerly and it is reasonably economical. There is a lot to like about this car.

    However, the devil is in the detail. The overall design is excellent, but Fiat has missed some practicality tricks.

    The oddment space is disappointing and the seats are heavy and awkward to remove.

    Fiat quality strikes again - the electric tailgate release has failed as has the dashboard lighting.

    The biggest problem is the dealer. Fiat dealers' reputation in my experience is true.
