Fiat Doblo review - Reliability and Safety

The basic safety kit is standard and the Doblo should be reliable, if only because there’s little to go wrong.

The Fiat Doblo’s commercial vehicle origins bode well for its reliability. It’s been designed to stand up to some pretty tough treatment in the hands of van operators so we’d expect it to stay the course of family life fairly well.

On the safety front, the latest high tech features aren’t offered but you do get twin front airbags, ESP stability control with a Hill Holder function and ISOFIX child seat points as standard. Anti-whiplash front head restraints are an option. 

There’s a 3-year unlimited mileage warranty as standard on all Fiat Doblos and service intervals are set at 19,000 miles.
