The Doblo turbo-diesel is a very fine machine

Advantagesmagnificent seats

DisadvantagesPedals too close to each other, spongy brakes

"The Doblo 1.9 JTD, ELX. Sace, magnificent seats, light, nimble and zingy to drive, precise and quick steering, light, quick and perfectly positioned gearbox, performance and sheer convenience. I also enjoy the wacky looks. Bad Points: Pedals too close to each other, spongy brakes and an inaudible indicator. General Comments: The Doblo turbo-diesel is a very fine machine. To call it a van with windows sounds like damning with faint praise, ..." Read review

I hate to say it but...

AdvantagesMade in Turkiye therefore very cheap here.

DisadvantagesA whole lot

"...everytime. Heating controls and the ancient Fiat 124 looks ventilation ports are annoying. And they stick our like sore thumbs since they are in a different color. The dashboard is made of very cheap plastics. And what is it all about that exposed body metal all around the interior ?? (Reminds me of the interior of the Renault Twingo) Black dashboard, light grey door panels, blue controls and vent ports, whitish overhead shelf... A strange blend ..." Read review

Fiat Doblo 1.9 JTD Family 7 seats

AdvantagesCheap especially second hand

Disadvantageslooks, price of the replacementParticle Filter from Fiat

"Great car for the money second hand if you don't mind the looks. Very practical for carrying 7 people with little luggage or remove the rear 2 seats for a huge boot. I bought it because I got a great price from car dealer second hand. Apparently very few people are looking for them. The 1.9JTD multijet motor is VERY powerful - perfect for accellerating up hills with a full load! Steering and roadhandly is surprisingly precise. Rear 2 seats are ..." Read review

The Fiat Diablo

AdvantagesThe space and the quietness while driving


"...SRI. Unlike most new cars this Fiat Diablo does not contain a CD Player, it contains a Radio Casette which when i found out i got a shock to be honest i thought a new car which does not have a CD Player its odd really.But if you would like to have a Cd Player in then it is optional. Safety In my eyes a car should be safe but this car oes not seem to be as safe as other cars the reason being the only safety equidment are driver's airbags and ..." Read review

Fiat Doblo 1.9 JTD

AdvantagesVery Nippy , usefull interior size, price,

DisadvantagesVery few considering price

"...Citroen, Peugeot, Renault, where the Fiat Doblo does seem to excell in almost all areas and it is slightly bigger with the distinct advantage of having the suprisingly perky fiat engine under the bonet, my advice is get out there and compare like for like but so far everyone we have spoken to who own the Doblo are delighted with their purchase. . ..."

Doblo ownership 1 year on.

AdvantagesLoads of space / very easy access

DisadvantagesRather noisey at speed, split seating not flexible enough for some applications

"...I would be a Fiat owner in a million years; due to a bad experience with a Fiat Uno some 20 years ago. I had been looking for a vehicle to double as family carrier and a van for shifting allsorts. I had looked at what seemed to be the 3 contenders out there, Peugeot, Citroen and Renault and test drove them all. It was only on some infomation from my wife that I went and had a look at the Doblo. I could not believe the difference this little beauty ..." Read review

Fiat Doblo 1.9JTD SX

AdvantagesPlenty of space, economy

DisadvantagesUnladen rear suspension quality, wind noise

"In the time I've had the Doblo, it has been very reliable. The main reason for my purchase of a Doblo was cost, I bought one cheaply second-hand. Being 17, the cost of insurance is a considerable factor, and I was able to find quotes around the £1500pa mark; cheap for a vehicle this size. Fuel consumption is also good - I average around 61mpg, and by setting the speed at about 45mph in 5th gear, I get 65mpg. Admittedly, most of my driving is outside ..." Read review

Fiat Doblo, very low quality, very poor service

AdvantagesSpace, good seating and driving

DisadvantagesQuality, very poor indeed (mechanically), and very poor service from Fiat

"I have had this car now for 4 years and had nothing but trouble with it. It is of very poor quality. Within weeks of buying it I have had the fuel pup replaced, within months I needed a new window wiper motor. The car never starts properly from cold, although this was apparently solved with the new fuelpump. The doors jam open and all the hinges and rails were rusting after less than a year. Everything breaks on it because it is such lousy cheap plastic. ..." Read review
