I class myself in this comment but isn't it amazing how grateful you can be when Fiat sort out something that was due to their design shortcomings and testing. Boomerdog should be grateful for the people who bought 2007 motorhomes who had to fight to even get Fiat to admit there was a problem let alone fix it.

Andy , Are you saying that you only know of 4 failures in the hunderds of Fiat 3.0ltr gearbox's on the road ? Does'nt sound like a lot !or have I missed something

Worth a try, Alan.
I have a 2007 2.2 with clutch judder in reverse and Fiat says it is within normal parameters. ie no chance of repair. Only got 8000 on the clock.

You've missed a hell of a lot actually:

1) Having to a great extent achieved the purpose of the thread (with 2.3's anyway) Andy no longer posts on here

2) That particular post is now historic. Much has happened since then

3) If you really wish to update yourself then scroll through the 276 pages of this thread, and check out the other threads which also relate to this topic......and you could have a "word" with people like alan (erneboy) or Dave (DJP) or Steve (Chigman) to get their view on the matter...to name but three

It does seem that between 12000 and 18000 miles is a critical figure for the 3litre clutch- I'm at 21000 and been "nursing" mine with little problem apart fronm a smoky and stinky clutch when I'd done 2000

Holy thread resurrection batman....


Hi, I am in the process of buying a 2007 Hymer which has the 3l Multijet engine and a 6 speed manual gearbox - I believe it was once owned by Javea who used to post on here.


There were a number of posts on here about reverse judder and a thump on startup on the 3 litre engines and concerns that in the long term this may damage clutches and gearboxes, Fiat insisted that the 3 litre vehicles were OK.


My question is simple, did the damage that people were concerned about actually manifest itself and require repair ?


And if the problems do occur, are they expensive to fix ?


If the issue is potential clutch damage, how much does it cost to get a clutch replacement done ?


Regards


Patrick

Hi bornagain and welcome to the forum.

I read somewhere just recently that posts about the problem seemed to dry up so the conclusion was that it hadn't proved to be a great problem after all.

I'm sure someone who owned one will comment soon.
