reliability

My Doblo 1.9 non turbo isn't exactly the most reliable. In the two years I've had it , it has had a new radiator, new air-con,faulty fuel injection system (repaired by Lucas),horn not working, back door that would n't open. For a car thingy that claims to be a workhorse mine seems to have three lame legs. Is this common or just a one off.
P.S. apart from these faults I sill love driving it.

Mine needed a complete wiring loom to make front fogs. Keycode a bit wonky from time to time. Otherwise okay except goes though windscreens quicker than tires.

Does drive better than it ought though. And engine has lasted longer than the 6000 miles managed by my punto when new.[8)]

Re: reliability

Lucas used to have the advertising byline "king of light". Motor trade old hands preferred "prince of darkness"
