    Thinking about getting new van but keep reading about the reversing problem with the new 2.3ltr. Fiat ie. juddering when reversing up a slope, does anyone know if the same problem occurs with the 3ltr. model. :thumb:

    Hi,

    I am not sure, but from all of the reports I have read I would not want to take a chance and would seriously be looking into alternative manufacturers like Ford or Mercedes etc.

    It seems to be prevalent in the 6-speed manual 3ltr model.

    Thanks Bigfoot, will more than likely avoid buying a van on Fiat and go for a Ford or Renault.
