    My car

    After almost two years ownership I can confidently say this is the most practical and enjoyable car I have owned in 35 years of motoring, I cannot think of any current car I would prefer to own that would not cost at leat 3 times as much to purchase, and even then I'm not sure I would change.

    The comfort and space is really great and although a few other van derivatives may offer the space, they still look very van like, while the Berlingo, especially in XTR Guise looks more Sports Utility than the others.

    I have found the loading bay to be vast, and makes other cars like a Mercedes Estate look puny in comparison.

    I often use the interior roof bars to carry light loads and some of my friends have commented that they would find them brilliant for transporting the wing sections of their radio controlled planes.

    I have a towbar fitted to the Berlingo andit tows very well indeed and with stability.

    The 90BHP Diesel is quite powerful enough for any driving circumstances I have encountered, easily powering a fully laden car up steep motorway gradients in top gear easily maintaining the legal limit and more. In fact, I have to be very careful on the open Road to keep within speedlimits as the car easily cruises at 80mph plus.

    I have no doubt that at the end of three years this will be replaced with another Berlingo. Reliability and service have also been faultless and bits don't fall off either (unlike previous Citroens I have owned.

    The citroen berlingo 1.6 110 xtr in the showroom today looked gorgeous for some strange reason. The berlingo was in silver and it look like a berlingo/4x4 which really suited the car well. The car came with air can as standard which is a first for the berlingo multispace. I honestly would say any family looking for a car with huge practicality,go for it and buy a berlingo you honestly will not regret it. Build quality of the old berlingo was alway brilliant and I imagine the new berlingo will be just as good. If you honestly are considering a berlingo only go for the 1.6 110 petrol and 90hp diesel. If the buget will strech go for the 110hp diesel in xtr veriant and you can do much wrong. 75hp diesel and 90hp petrol are supposidly underpowered so it's best to avoid these engines.

    My car

    Fans of the old Berlingo will have been looking forward to this for ages. A new, slightly better looking and a much improved car. I am waiting to order an XTR because of the three seats but Citroen have missed a trick by making the two outside seats isofix, where on the old model the center seat had isofix, Ideal for keeping the older children apart !

    It drives just like a Berlingo, it uses fuel just like a Berlingo and I'll bet the bits will drop off, just like a Berlingo.

    You have to wonder if Citroen realise that adding a carpet in the back might make it look good but does nothing for the practicality of the vehicle and the point of an interior light that becomes a torch is what? (I know it will get lost).

    Just like the old car I won't be able to drive fast enough outside town to worry about speeding tickets although pulling power on the diesel is fine. Those of you who already own one will know exactly what I mean when I say I'll be getting mine soon. The others probably won't get it.

    For me, its the only family car for a real family. For some strange reason you don't cry when the baby is ill all over the back seat, and its an easy place to change the babies nappy. My bike, the babies trailer and most other stuff still fits in the back. Its a taxi, a mobile picnic site, a dustcart and a van. Never pay full list and make sure you really want those options. Services shouldn't hurt too much.

    Still looking for a fault........ It's French!
