    My car

    I submitted an initial review of this car last year as I was one of the first to take delivery of a Series III Berlingo in November 2005.

    Air-conditioning has been a huge boon this summer - it's definitely worth the extra, and the rain-senstive wipers which I dismissed as a gimmick are surprisingly useful.

    Now, at 10,000 miles, the 1.6HDi unit is consistently returning 55mpg on the combined cycle, and at modest motorway speeds (65mph) it will average around 66mpg.

    There have been no faults or niggles so far. It's good, practical, efficient with great visibility and economy - I've grown rather fond of it.

    My car

    I bought a Berlingo new last September, because, as I was driving in my Vauxhall Meriva down to the coast, a car shot passed me and sailed happily into the distance - this was my first experience of the Berlingo.

    I was fascinated, and as I carry a wheelchair-bound disabled passenger, I thought it was the most suitable car I had ever seen. Very quickly, and as the Citroen dealer was near, I bought one and have never looked back.

    It's spacious, comfortable to drive and has many storage units inside. It's economical for a larger engine and I shall definitely have another one. I'm hooked.

    My car

    Had a 1.6 HDI Desire for 6 months now, from new and have been really pleased with it.

    Performance is very good for the type of car and flexibility is superb which equals fewer gear changes, keeps up with traffic and can be an "Autoroute" express.

    Space is excellent although rear seats are not good enough for anyone over the age of 12, too small and you can feel the seat bars poking through. Have the modutop which is fine until you forget to close the locker and all falls on your head, normally half way round a roundabout.

    Economy is stunning, typical diesel in small (ish) car routine, but give it some hammer and it can increase rapidly, (i.e. at high motorway speeds.

    I know they look like a "care in the community" car, but they are superb and you get waved at by others which brightens up your day.

    Overall, nice choice, done 12,000 miles in six months and not a murmur, dealer seems good also, but test of that is when it goes pear shaped, which I dont expect it will. One other thing, we specified the aircon package, worth every penny, big glassy car gets hot.

    My car

    I have had the 1.6 16v model for five years and done 70,000 miles in it.

    I have replaced the steering unit (under warranty) and the fuel pump. At 60,000 miles, it had a new brake light switch and new rear washer wiper (all outside the warranty). I've had one spare wheel stolen and fitted a locking device to the new one.

    Citroen service in the area is varied. The main agent, a former Ford dealer, has provided good quality servicing work but is organisationally weak. Citroen Approved servicing in the area varies in quality, but is delivered by two outlets who actually seem more committed to Citroens than the main agent.

    Overall I will probably buy another one (1.6 HDi) because of the design, practicality and fit to my requirements, but I'll look at the Peugeot Partner and the Renault Kangoo first.
