Fiat Fiorino (Fiorino's Fiat) is issued since 1977. The last generation of model was presented on the Geneva motor show in 2008.
FIAT Fiorino is constructed on the basis of the Uno model. Since 1978 two main modernizations of model - in the 1988th and 1993rd years were carried out.
Fiorino body only is in front similar to Uno - no interchangeable body details behind are present. Fiorino is longer than "kid" of Uno on half-meter and is certainly much higher. In total there are three modifications: the closed all-metal van, passenger-and-freight Fiorino Panorama and the open pickup (2,4 sq.m, loading capacity to 592 kg).
The third generation of FIAT Fiorino which is issued since 1993, has under a cowl four motors - two petrol (1,4 and 1,6 16V) and two diesel (1,7D and 1,7TD). the 63-strong turbodiesel appeared in 1997.
All these engines can be considered quite reliable. Special attention - to a GRM belt. It is especially subject to influence of road salt and wears out before 70 thousand km recommended by manufacturer. Oil smudges which corrode over time belt structure here can play the role.
As well as in Ford Courier, a headache sometimes bring electric equipment contacts. The most weak spot are wires of the sensor of electronic control by a power supply system. All FIAT Fiorino cars were equipped with a mechanical 5-step transmission. The box is unpretentious, in it fill in inexpensive oil (10W90) which, however, it is necessary to change each 40-60 thousand km. Periodic smudges of oil through old epiploons - an everyday occurrence after 3-4 years of operation in our climate.
Forward brakes of all modifications of Fiorino - disk, and back - drum. "Sick" place of system - brake pipelines, a cable and a leveling roller of the parking brake which badly transfer our "salt" winter.
