I have had several Autotrails all with the 2.8 engine. Would appreciate any on the reliability of the 3.0 one and if there are any common problems. Also what year did the dreaded clutch judder get resolved.

Cheers Colin

I’ve had 2 3 litre Fiat Mohos, one manual for 5 years and now an auto for the last 4 years. No problems whatsoever, just routine servicing.

We have a Hymer with three litre fiat ( iveco) engine mated to a manual gearbox. Whilst I don’t think is as good as our old Merc 2.7 it is however a good strong power plant, we sailed up the Massive Central in October, changing down a gear we pretty much maintained our traveling speed.

From memory??? the clutch judder problem was linked to the introduction of the 2.3 Lt engine, mated with an unsuitably geared gearbox in 2006.

I don't think there were problems with the 3 Lt unit.

Since 2008 & many years tugging
Clutch judder was fixed by 2010.
3 Lt known for burning out clutches due to the high torque and the DMF didn't fair too well on them, mainly due to driving style, if treated well they last well.
