Why do people invest their hard earned cash in Fiat based motorhomes? People must do research before they buy a motorhome, don't they? Every magazine you open pretty well, every forum you read, is packed with letters and comments about faults and failures of Fiat based motor homes. No just old ones mind, new ones too! Numerous transmission failures, gearboxes, judders and breakdowns. Even built in design faults like the ingress of water into the engine compartment, etc etc. And thats without all the complaints about the indifference of Fiat dealers. A friends 2004 Hymer Exsis (Fiat based of course) has been in the dealers for more than 2 months now, why? Get this; they don't know!! Still trying to find why it won't run! They are trying parts from other vehicles they service in the hope of finding the fault! There's plenty of options; Mercedes-Benz, Ford, Renault and more.. So can someone tell me, why do people buy FIAT?
