Altough the car is very good it is after all a suzuki sx4, the dealer's after care is very poor and fiat seems too frightened to stand up to their dealers even if their name is tarnished and they lose longterm customers as a result

Generally, more or less what i expected, though, in the recent very bad weather, the 4wd option has been superb.

Despite your magazine decrying this model it really does a similar job to large 4 wheel drive models and is most pleasant to drive

Wanted a handy small 4/4 type vehicle for farm, as work truck and run about so bought a used 08 Sedici with 47000 miles. I have put another 43000 miles on it in last two years and it's not had an easy life, with towing and some off roading into fields. I had a intermittent power problem, so a friend who runs a garage and engine tuning co blanked the valve and cut out the DPF out of exhaust and rewelded back up and remapped to 160 hp. Do not be fobbed of by main dealers with all this EGR/ DPF nonsense, it cost £300 and cures it, it's now a seriously quick car and am looking at putting rear discs from a Suzuki SX4, to help stop it quicker. I have had 2 rear springs, more to do with the amount of abuse and work it has done. For the average user round town I would not hesitate having one.

Bought as the "second car" it has proved itself perfect for getting to the station, getting to the stables and leaving at the football. An attractive, reliable package with the piece of mind of 4wd. An absolute hidden gem of a car ( and much cheaper than the suzuki built in same factory)

It's a simple, practical and good-looking small hatchback, very easy to drive and quite economical, with adequate space, performance and comfort plus the bonus of a good four-wheel drive system for use on wintry roads. At the price it is excellent value.

The 4x4 1.9 diesel engine has loads of low down torque which is very good when there is so much snow around this winter and last winter, i have never been stuck in the snow with this car (unlike all the flash beemer, merc and audis i have seen slithering and stuck all over the place). fuel consumption is not bad at 42mpg. The car has been totally reliable and never let me down.

I fell in love with this car as soon as I sat in it. The elevated driving position is perfect for my joints as I suffer with hip pain, and the cabin is roomy and has some very useful features. The transmission is pokey but speedy acceleration requires some nifty shifting through the low gears. The real bonus with this car is the switchable 4WD, which can be set to 2WD, Auto 4wd or Permanent 4wd. With all the heavy rain of recent times, and possibility of ice or snow in winter, this is definitely an important consideration for me. Economical, practical, fun to drive - this is my perfect car. The dash includes a very useful mpg indicator, which, if you keep a watchful eye, is great for ensuring that your driving style does not impact too much on economy. The factory-fitted rear parking sensors also include rear side sensors: a bonus. The radio CD player is security fitted so difficult to steal, and I love the easy-to-find door lock button for extra peace of mind in slow traffic at night. The Sedici is very handsome, and the roof rails give it a sporty appearance. The boot is just big enough for to transport my dog comfortably but this clever little 4WD is very compact and easy to park. I love it. The only issue I believe this car might have is with the diesel particulate filter (DPF), which requires that the car is frequently run for a decent stretch at speed so that the particulates are burnt off and the filter does not block. If you only want a car for pootling around town you are probably better off with a Panda.
