    My car

    i have the fiat uylesses the same as the one in the picture above and same colour, i have had it for over a year i have found no problems with it and the engine is great it is very comfortable car to drive and the kids love it and i can say for a 25 yr to drive it its great on the insurance, the only problem i find is that it did not come with the original alloy wheels in stead it has wheel trims which i think lets it down.

    My car

    WARNING!!!!!!!! There is a seriuos manufacturing fault on this vehicle that causes premature cam belt failure and Fiat refuse to acknowledge it. Water seeps into the engine compartment and drips onto the cam belt corroding the metal content and causing failure. I have an 04 model and, along with 16 others, all have suffered the same problem. I am currently taking legal action against Fiat.

    My car

    I bought a 2005 2 litre diesel that was a few months old and saved nearly £8000 at the time. I found it much better value and safer than the Galaxy/Sharan and had become very keen on sliding rear doors. Thinking of changing now and surprised how much more they have depreciated compared to the identical Citroen since Fiat stopped selling them - a great benefit to the next buyer. It's been completely reliable in 30k miles and I've had it serviced as necessary by Fiat and the garage has been okay. I have found the dedicated independent website - www.eurovan2.com - very useful for a range of topics from towbars to tyres and exhausts which also covers the Citroen C8 and Peugeot 807. Overall, I think that if you can find a good local Fiat/Citroen/Peugeot garage (they're all the same parts except trim and front/rear panels/lights) these are very good cars.

    My car

    I bought this car 2 years ago, mainly because it offered such good value for money (even compared to the identical Citroen C8)and the NCAP website pictures turned me away from the Sharan/Galaxy. IT has been completely reliable for 20,000 miles and even the dealer services were done properly. The absence of a transmission tunnel also means the centre rear seat passenger can stretch out and has a marvellous view (good for a car-sickness prone child). It is not as sporty (in context!!) as the Galaxy, but it travels faster than you think - the high seating position surprisingly disguises your speed (think how fast a low go-kart seems and this is the inverse). It's not as economical as a Galaxy either (35mpg rather than 45 mpg) I'd suggest you take a second look at this or the Citroen compared to most other MPV's especially of safety matters to you.
