While historically IVECO has been plagued with complaints about build quality, things have improved a great deal over the past few years, so the number of things to look out for has fallen accordingly. It is worth noting that all our operators, without prompting, said that their rigids were far more solid and reliable than the Stralis tractors on their fleets – and not because the tractors were particularly bad! There are however, as always, a few niggles worth being aware of. Here are some issues we’ve heard of with some of the high mileage, less cared for trucks.

1. Warning lights

Erroneous dashboard warning lights, usually related to the engine or gearbox, were reported by most of our operators. The good news, however, is that these usually clear if the ignition is turned off for a minute or two, leaving no trace of a fault on the diagnostics.
