55-reg Diesel, Owner for 3 to 5 years

Excellent car for the money. Very surprising how well it performs and its practicality for a small car is hard to beat. Top performer in its class i think.

Not a looker by any means but in all other regards it scores.

I have the Panda Cross which is the Diesel-engined 4x4 version. It exceeded all expectations in this winter's ice and snow and was worth owning for this element of its performance alone.

I bought a fiat panda cross less than a year ago because i wanted something different. It has been totally reliable and performed as expected. I think it's great.

Purchased when 6 months old - no issues at all. Only petrol costs and annual service/mot.
