    we have the e745 at present and are looking at a new e789 hi line as a replacment to give us a garage and more berths

    I am well impressed by the bessacarr trim and equiptment levels and standards and the 2.8 engine has more than enough power to pull van and tow car with excellent economy any views appriciated

    we do not want a 5 , a rv or a caravan as love the bessie , did look at burnster last night and although nice i did not feel was built to the same standard and trim level as the swift

    does the 3l fiat have any gearbox problems ??????

    I have the 3lt bess E765s 3 year old oct this year most of the miles touring Scotland where you are constantly gear changing have had no problems with reverse like yourself the build quality is fantastic and the engine is quite and wants to go on and on when all the fuss about the judder came to light the local fiat dealer put the van through all tests inclding a 1/7 hill that a goat couldent get up no problems in reverse

    Hi

    There does seem still to be some doubt about the 3 Ltr Man have seen on other forums that people have had problems, but does not seem to be as common. Fiat do not seem to acknowledge a problem on this model, or the Auto version, must admit never seen much written against this version, so far.
