FIAT Doblo (2001–2009)

Last updated 30 March 2016

Utilitarian looking. Bigger than Berlingo. Available with seven seats. Best with 1.3 Multijet diesel. Handles decently.
Problems with turbos of 1.9 diesels.

Timing chain of 2007 Doblo 1,252cc Multijet snapped, luckily without valeve and piston damage and injection pump failed at the same time. Four figure bill.

Introduction

Peculiar looking contraption, the Doblo. Deliberately styled to look utilitarian, almost like a pastiche of a 1930's hotel bus. The kind of car you could bump in a carpark with an even chance of it ending up looking better.

So no worries about the odd scratch, then. And the big advantage of the ‘Family' versions tested here is that they're the cheapest 7-seaters you can buy (in the UK, at least).
