Facelift Qubo with Euro6 1.3 multijet -any problems?

Thinking of looking for a post 2016 Qubo with 1.3 Multijet, Euro6 engine. I'm well used to the 1.3, in Doblo, Qubo and Panda.
Has anyone here any experience of the latest Euro6 version, which uses adblue - and if so, are the any specific problems or things to look out for?

Re: Facelift Qubo with Euro6 1.3 multijet -any problems?

Hi Brom,

I own such a beast and have just bought my 2nd facelift a week ago (thanks for your PM btw, thought replying on here better for the general good..)

I've had only good experiences with the 80PS-engined improved Qubo. It has a lot more poke than the 75PS model (of which I had 3, first being a new Fiorino, then two s/h Qubos) The only problem I could see of late, although I seem to remember having the same issue with the others, is the inability of my local indie garage to zero the Change Oil indicator so even after a service with fresh oil, the engine oil light would start to flash with the intermittent warning on the display. Even though the locals have good OBD readers for all the cars they service, they apparently need one that is a large amount of more to get deep into the settings to fix this.

I had the first facelift Qubo from 12,000 miles, sold it at 57500. I had new front top mounts as they began to clunk around 35000 miles. Bit annoying as it's a really well documented fail point and despite there being excellent aftermarket products, Fiat were still fitting the poor ones, I think from much reading, ones that allow water into the bearings which rust 'em up. The first replaced ones failed very soon after fitting so Bilstein (?) ones were fitted and the others returned under warranty. Never heard anything back but I wasn't charged for the replacements.


I looked online last week to see about my (awful) stock Daiichi radio and after a lot of sideways distractions found a Fiat Dealer in Turkey's you tube video about the 'new' Doblo and Fiorino. (Their Qubo is called Fiorino) I noticed from the walk-round video there is an Ad Blue filler port by the diesel filler - never seen one of those on a UK model. Might have been introduced after my latest car (Nov '17).

Still has the rubbish radio in the new one and after using the car less than a whole morning it has died. White Screen of Death. I've been in contact with the makers already over the last radio and they are offering to help with the repair of this one's front end which they think is the issue. I still feel since it won't do Traffic Announcements or Auto Tune itself I'd like a better HU anyway but the car is fine! It's a lot nippier than the pre-facelift ones but the claimed fuel economy is way off reality. It has a lot better soundproofing than the last one (only 9 months age between them) but still no carpets! The ones in the Turkey dealer's video had carpets and carpet infill in the door cards so although progress is slow, it is happening.

Hope that answers some of your thoughts - I'd recommend it as an upgrade to the earlier model.

Re: Facelift Qubo with Euro6 1.3 multijet -any problems?

Many thanks - that's reassuring. I was thinking of going for a Trekking 95 - I had assumed that all Euro6 Qubos would use Adblue, this being the only way most manufacturers could meet the new emissions rules - but of course, the Ducato resisted Adblue for a year or two, before Euro6D came along. Perhaps they did the same on the Quborino?

Re: Facelift Qubo with Euro6 1.3 multijet -any problems?

Red Van Man, I managed to find the cheat code somewhere deep online to get rid of the change oil warning, without paying fiat for the pleasure. It was something like turning the ignition on then off then pressing the brake 10 times then turning on then off again, or something along those lines to reset the warnings. Sorry I can't remember where I found it but sure you could find it with some searching.

Hi Phi...()

I did a lot of searching the last time this Change Oil annoyance happened and I did find several refs to the ignition on/off and brake pedal thing. I think fewer people said it worked than said it was no good - I was in the latter group. There were actually variations on the method too, fewer/more pedal presses and the on/off bit but it was all to no avail. Further reading offerings said only an OBD reader would do it. (I think #Varesecrazy confirmed this some time ago?) I bought one (ebay) which was about 23 or so and that did the sq root of diddly. I sold it again.

The solution this time, I sold the car!

Waiting for Italy to wake up to proceed with the radio saga, maybe more info on that after tomorrow. If there's a good HU without satnav and with CD player which would be a near straight swap for the one in now I'd like to hear about it. I believe the hole is 2 DIN though it has a frame inside to take the current thing (box looks like 1 DIN) but on the Trekking it gets a Satnav unit which I think has a larger screen so needs the extra space.

Thanks for your input

It very possibly could have been on a 500 forum as they have very similar systems. Maybe I was just lucky.

Somewhat annoying that there's inconsistency between similar models then! What is the point...?

Re: Facelift Qubo with Euro6 1.3 multijet -any problems?

I remember trying one of these solutions of brake pedal presses with some other combo that didn't work but all the comments below this one seem to have been successful!

I'll pass this video link onto my local indie as it might well save them any hassles with this ecu in future servicing if their diagnostic gizmo won't reach into a reset.
