A late starter here.
I'm 55 and have finally passed my driving test after a life on two wheels.
I bought a 96 Dobby, the diesel version as lots of my paragliding mates drive them and they swallow mountains of gear and seem indestructible.
So first car and I could do with a handbook to get used to all the controls; after a bike they seem way too confusing.
Has anybody got one they would be interested in selling?
All the best Chunko'.

Hi Guys, thanks for the quick replies
Yes, a 1996 model in 'lovely' minty green.
I have found a download, but I'm a bit of an old fart and prefer something on paper to read and leaf through.

Hi, and welcome to FF,:)

Doblo was a relatively recent commercial for FIAT.. not sure about 1996

the Commercials are all named after coins.. ;)
Fiorino / Florin..etc

EBAY is probably your best bet for a paper manual.

the bit about names is interesting, I had wondered where it came from.
I have spotted an '05 manual on fleabay for not much money. Really I am after the basic controls, lights, air, dash etc. Years on bikes has left me struggling with car design.
but hell I can now just hop in the sucker and go somewhere, no more dresing up like a storm trooper.
Dobby gives me an infinite new world. Canoes, paragliders, mountainbikes. I can even do the shopping in it.
