Ducato 2.3 Problems

Hello,
I am a new member here from Cyprus. I want to share my experience with fiat ducato.
We have bought 7 ducato vans 2.3jtd during 2008. We must say that we are very happy with their power and space.

However, almost all of them had problems.
5 of the vans changed their brakes in less than 20000 km.
2 gearbox problems
3 changed clutch cyliders.

FIAT garage in Cyprus covered only the gearbox problems and said that brakes and clutch problems are because of big load we carry which was less than 3.5 gross. We carry confectioneries and drinks.


This is very strange because those problems are coming only on fiat ducato and we have never faced such problems with FORD Transits.

Too many problems for new vans we believe,increasing our maintenance expenses very high.

We thing that those expenses should be covered by the guarantee. After changing the brakes more than 40 000 km passed and we have no problems so the factory brakes were problematic. the same applies for the gearbox and clutch.

Please tell me your opinion.

Re: Ducato 2.3 Problems

Did anyone face similar problems?
i.e clutch and gearbox in just 20000km.
