What should I look for in a used Citroën Berlingo estate?
Rear parking sensors aren’t standard on the entry-level Feel model and front ones aren't even included on the top-of-the-range Flair. The normal Berlingo is a pretty sizeable vehicle, but the seven-seat XL model is even more cumbersome, so look out for parking scrapes to the front and rear bumpers.
Alloy wheels are fairly well protected by the tyre sidewalls, but you should still look for any kerb damage. Also, any large chunks taken out of the rim could be an indication that the suspension has taken a knock and its alignment could do with a check.
The Berlingo is primarily a family, and its interior might have taken a bit of a battering. With that in mind, look out for any bits of broken plastic and stains to some of the lighter-coloured parts of the interior upholstery.
What are the most common problems with a used Citroën Berlingo estate?
It’s a little too soon to identify any common problems with the current Berlingo, but have a listen for any squeaks and rattles in the interior and make sure the seats slide and recline as they should.
Is a used Citroën Berlingo estate reliable?
As per the previous entry, this generation of Berlingo is a bit too new to have any concrete evidence of its reliability, but Citroën, as a brand, only managed to finish in 25th place out of 31 car manufacturers according to our latest What Car? Reliability survey, but hopefully the latest Berlingo can improve upon this.
