Do you know of any issues with the Fiat Doblo van?
I'm thinking of purchasing a secondhand van, it's a Fiat Doblo 1.6 diesel L2. Do you know if they have experienced any engine/gearbox, or other problems, with these?

We’ve not had any reports of engine or gearbox problems with the 1.6-litre diesel. However, if buying used, I’d recommend a post-2016 van as this will benefit from the mid-life facelift with improved diesel engines, better handling and high levels of kit fitted as standard.
