    My Fiat based MH is now overdue its second year service by a month as we have been away (only 6k miles since last service so not a major worry). Not keen on using my dealer for a number of reasons so has anyone used an independent garage as per the 2003 law as below!

    European law, known as “Block Exemption”, changed in 2003, which means that Independent Garages can carry out a Fiat service without making your Fiat warranty invalid.

    I've read that Fiat can be difficult if anything needs doing has anyone been there and offer advice. :Eeek:

    If its a Fiat 130 or 160 multi jet I think it is 30,000miles (Scheduled servicing every 48,000 km ) or 2 Years for the first service...if you have already had one service you may be ok

    I suggest you ring the Fiat motorhome help number that should be in the document pack. That will take you through to Italy where you will find them most helpful. Much more so than any dealer or Fiat UK.

    There is a UK freephone number in the book that transfers you, or you can ring direct on 0039 0244412160.

    If you use a Vat registered garage and they use genuine Fiat parts etc you should have no problems, we are not a Fiat garage as such and we service all ours without any problems
