Fiat Ulysee 2.2 JTD 2003 Diesel model,Worst car in the world please avoid like the plague! If you have one of these and its ok for you,youre lucky,mine was built on a Monday morning or a Friday night,just terrible.Where to start? Bought it from an auction (Alarm bells should have been ringing here!) very cheap @ £5K for an 03 plate when it was just about two and a half years old with only 38,000 miles on the clock.Whent to drive it home,first off,a piece of trim came away in my hands,then it would not start,needed a jump start to get it going.My first experience owning a turbo diesel powered car,sounded noisey,thought that was normal,slow ok its a diesel.Got it home and the electric sliding doors had a mind of their own,had to close manually.Warning lights came on so had it checked by local dealer.It had electronic gremlins,not covered by warranty,needed new fuse box,ouch! Ok bought it cheap so £400 not too bad,serviced,brakes etc another £600,ok still not too bad.Running better so took it for a seaside trip,1000 miles later,bang.Fan belt had shredded somehow and worked its way into the engine causing massive damage! Again not covered by warranty after a big argument with the AA who helped finish it off by misdiagnosis ,trying to fire up a damaged engine and garage who said not covered,A Warranty is just not worth the paper its printed on,should have bought German or Japanese.It needed a new engine costing £3500 so after it returned I part exchanged for a Citroen C5 Estate which was heaven in comparisson.There is nothing worse than an unreliable car and it was the pits.
Thanks for reading my review and I hope you found it interesting.If this has been useful to you and you take time to leave Your rating it will be appreciated and hope you will take a look at my other reviews sometime.I also leave reviews on the Ciao website about this and other items,many thanks!
With a capacity of 7 seats this robust, family-sized car is built to carry large loads. Its comfy seats mean no annoyance when travelling long distances and as they are removable, moving large objects is a breeze.
It is a gas-guzzler when it comes to the credit crunch though and one of the new hybrid cars would be much better in the future due to 'green' taxing ideas. This would also save on fuel but is expensive short-term.
It has also proven over the years to be unreliable as we have had to call the AA out many times including during a trip to Wales.
Its not a car i would recommend unless a very good deal was drawn up by a rather fanciable car dealer.
It is, however, good for long distances with young children as its seats can comfortably support a child seat and have heated seats for toasty bottoms in the winter.
It also has awesome cup holders woo!!
