Fusion v Meriva v Roomster opinions required!

Hello everyone,

I am thinking of changing my training vehicle, and would like the views of others no matter whether it's good or bad, all feedback much appreciated even if its negative. I have a Fabia and need to go up a little in size so have been looking at the Fusion, Mariva or Roomster. Has anyone had dealer issues, warranty problems. Do you enjoy/enjoyed driving it did your pupils like/liked driving it. Visability is a main concern esp reverse left. Were the servicing cost outrages, I am not concerned about petrol v diesel as there are other threads about this.

Many thanks
Alex

Are you sure those are any bigger than the Fabia?  My perception is that they are a comparable size, just a different style.

Re: Fusion v Meriva v Roomster opinions required!

There is not much in it, roomster the OBVIOUS choice, been a Skoda. Sounds Daft, but a jazz is also another one to consider.

Golf, Focus or Astra would be a better option wouldn't it..... much more room!

Oh and there is only one option, DIESEL, DIESEL and DIESEL.

Re: Fusion v Meriva v Roomster opinions required!

Unfortunately the Jazz doesn't come in a diesel yet (expected later this year).

Fusion is a terrible fashion victim - it's a fiesta wearing a 4x4 coat, it suffers from this by being the worst fiesta and the worst 4x4 in the world.

Meriva is honest, but a vauxhall.

Like the Roomster though, but I wouldn't be surprised if it put customers off.

Re: Fusion v Meriva v Roomster opinions required!

My wife had a Meriva for just over 2 years, she only replaced it with my 'old' corsa diesel tuition car because of the petrol costs. It was a 1600 cc 16 valve and was quite thirsty on her daily local runs into Nottingham.

That said it really was a very useful car and although based on a Corsa platform is very roomy inside, seats 5 with ease with plenty of luggage space, the fold flat rear sets make it van like if you need too move anything large (very useful when my son was at university).

However the view to the front is rather restricted because of the A pillars and takes some getting used to, blind spots can be a real problem.

I wouldn't recommend one as a tuition car because of that although there is a school in Nottingham that uses one.

Reliability was 100% and servicing costs very reasonable.
