    France,
    I had a new Fiat (late) 2008 130 Multi jet............... that was fine

    so I have bought another new one

    Fiat 2011 130 Mutijet.................and that's fine

    But I have spoken to some Fiat, Peugeots, Citroen Motorhomers who had,...130 multi jet, and 160 3ltre 2007 and 2008 owners who did have trouble...........????? it seems it was a lottery.....Was it just the early models that had too high reverse gear and too low 1st... I don't know
    I love them.....they are beautiful to Drive:thumb:....just one thing...on my motorhome I am getting 25mpg motorway running and 28 local running and still only done 3000miles (so still running in, still tight, I may get a little more ?) now a Brit came talking to me last week end with the same model in a Merc late 2008 year (and as mine as been up rated so equal weight to a few pounds) He was a bit sad and disappointed as he has always had Fiat Rapido's.... custom and A class....he was getting 17 to 19 mpg and if he was lucky he has had on a odd occasion 20mpg!!

    I would buy another Fiat

    Hi

    Does appear to have gone quiet of late, the last reference I saw was regarding a 3ltr manual, but there is no fix on this one Fiat still say this one is no trouble.
    But personally would still check before handing over cash,
