Had to update my review of 2008 as I sold the Berlingo last year after 159000 miles - and I've regretted it ever since! No further mishaps other than noted in other review (gearbox etc) and it ran regardless without fault once fixed. Numerous holidays, Uni runs with furniture/family, and 'loaded trailer' trips - and once, with a single, full 'jerry can' did 1000 miles between fuel stops. Without doubt the best car I've ever had - improving greatly once the 'newness' had worn off. Still had to send written confirmation of a change of gear though, and about once a month would not select any gears at all for a few seconds - call it character. I would have another like a shot - they become somewhat best friends - bit like a Labrador. I always had mine serviced at a Peugeot garage (and didn't they love that!!)as the Citroen servicing/aftersales was not good at all. Fantastic vehicle - buy one without concern.
I bought what I call The Bing 3 years ago trouble free. It has now done 74,000 miles as I am heavy on mileage it has developed an autonator problem the cost is £333 for the autonator but over all its still a good car that has been problem free until now. I use it to tow a caravan all over England it is better than a Swiss Army knife. Has any one out there had any electrical problems such as this ?
I owned a 53 plate from new and have just traded it in for a new Berlingo Multispace 1.6 HDi 90 VTR I had nearly 5 years, (68500 miles) trouble free, economic but enjoyable motoring. I am pleased to report that the new Berlingo shows signs of being even better although it is more expensive. I was a Rover 825 SLD fan for many years, did not like the 75 and chose the Berlingo 2.0L HDi instead. I must say that my old Berlingo was the best vehicle that I have ever owned in 45 years driving and I feel guilty for deserting her. I hope that I will be able to report as favourably in 5 years time on the current one!
I have owned this car from new. I have had absolutely no problem with it at all. In fact i would go so far as to say it is one of the best and most reliable cars i have driven.
