    I have a 2001 Fiat 2.8TD based van and the cab heater is worse than useless. The gauge never gets above 1/4 temp whatever distance I cover. In my experience the Fiat has one of the worst heaters in the motor industry!!!!

    Because modern diesel engines are so frugal they take some time to reach optimum operating temperature. To overcome this VW and possibly others have an independent diesel heater that cuts in if the ambient temp drops below 10c this brings the heater up fairly quickly,:Cool: without it could take some time. :Sad:
