How about it all you Aussie  guys?  Big Iveco's are capable??

Iveco have been losing market share consistently over the last 10(or so) Years. Their main Problems In my opinion are..

1) They have revolving Door of Foreign executives who come & go far too frequently All with their Own Different Agendas.

2) They have an extremely Poor reputation regarding Warranty & Aftermarket support, There's heaps of Pissed Off Ex Iveco owners out there..

3) They Don't have a 15-16 Litre Truck Engine, They do have one they Fit to Tractors & Headers (Combines to you) their 13 Litre @560/1700 is just not quite Man enough for our Interstate B Double/Road train Work..

 

They recently head hunted a Long Term Freightliner/Benz Guy to head up the Aussie Operation. if he is given a free rein & support for the next 4-5 Yrs they Might just (maybe) Turn it Around..

Thx Hayseed.  I would  have to  believe you  can tolerate item 1.-that is  a corporate problem that will cost them money in the long run. Item 3? I guess there could be some applications where the cargo "cubes out" before it "weighs out".

But item 2? Kiss of death IMO.  You want to know that whatever you buy, the builder will stand behind it.
