Royal Mail Doblo

This is one of 3 Doblos I drive in work, nice little van to drive, really underpowered though, this was just after it's 1st wash in a year, the regular posties treat it as a skipClick image for larger version

Re: Royal Mail Doblo

Has it had many mechanical problems ?

Some of us here have been disappointed at the number of suspension problems that we have had. I guess any mechanical fragilities must get multiplied in a post office van that gets a tough life.

I have heard that they have been withdrawn from some London Royal mail routes with DPF issues due to lots of stop-start.

Re: Royal Mail Doblo

DPF gets cleaned about once a week, heard a rumour that Fiat advised against us buying them because they weren't practical for what we do (short journeys etc), nothing mechanical has gone wrong to my knowledge, start stop picks and chooses when it wants to work, some of them are fitted with Lightfoot Driver Behaviour Systems, drive you insane, get violations for putting your foot down going up hills 😫
