Hi all.......a friend has recently purchased a low mileage 2008 Concorde Charisma on the Iveco 6.5t chassis with the Agile Auto/Manual gearbox. Probably close to max. on the motor plus tow car/A frame adding a further 1 ton. Similar experience to Mickkir recently whilst touring in Dorset, long incline, slow moving heavy traffic, total failure of gear selection following hot clutch warning. Lengthy recovery followed by total replacement of the clutch (1500). He is currently working engine and gearbox hard in an attempt to regain confidence in a great vehicle. As an aside when the failed clutch assembly was stripped down there was absolutely no evidence of heating or damage which is not helping with the like for like replacement of the clutch solution as advised by Iveco.......Crindle.

Thanks for the warnings, I am hoping later models are a little more robust, nevertheless think I will use it in manual mode over hilly terrain. I have now clocked up 4000 miles and agree with Wray who said,

Other than the above I find it a very relaxing vehicle to drive.

don't buy the agile box..

i also have nothing but problems with this unit..
great box on the open road but around not go there..

truck has only traveled 88000 kms
clutch gone fly wheel gone actuator gone best part of $9000 to pick up the truck..

i feel that this is a design fault and should be recalled by iveco as there are many other people with this issue..

has anyone had any luck with making iveco pay for this problem?
