Citroen Berlingo 1996

5 star review

As I was stuck for a small van a few years ago, I was offered a Berlingo with a years MOT and a fitted two bar for £600. It had done 70k and was fairly clean for its year with no signs of rust. I bought the van and ran it for two years with not one problem, It even sailed its MOTs. I sold it to a friend who has run it daily for 3 years now and it still has not given any trouble. It will not win any races but for a P reg van it has certainly proved reliable.

Citroen Berlingo 1.9 d 2000

4 star review

Bought this to replace a C15 d and I have to say it’s a different world. The driving position is nice and high up, the cabin is much better and the PAS is a Bonus. I have plenty of room in the back for my decorating tools and the passenger seat folds forward or down flat(nice idea). I replaced the timing belt when I got it and it had to have a new clutch and driveshaft recently, but other than those there has been no other issues. It’s not exactly fast, but as quick as you need and will happily cruise at 80mph all day. The only bugbear is the fuel light comes on too early when 7.5l is left, which is about all that’s ever in it. I’ve noticed the newer ones have a side door. It’s definitely the best small van around and cheap second-hand.

5 star review

I really love my little van. I’ve waited all my life for a great van like this to come my way as I don’t have much money and I’m only 23, but it’s a real cracker does 25 miles to the gallon. It’s really cheap to drive around and the girls seem to like me more now there’s a few bumps here and there. I really rate this this van. I would say that the steering is really stiff, but I think this is better as you can feel the road more.

It’s a good van but small and it will do about 90 to 100mph<br /><br />

51 reg Berlingo, mine suffered from fuel problems which caused limp home mode, pulled the plug off the fuel thermistor and all’s been well since. Fantastic van overall, had to change the front springs at about 90k and there’s a rumble from the NSF suspension when cornering, but I would not hesitate to take this van on long journeys. Reliable with a bit of style. 10/10 - Max Knight from Sussex

Citroen Berlingo hdi enterprise 2005

4 star review

Having driven over 800,000 miles in my previous 2 Citroen’s (c15d’s). I expected the Berlingo to be a huge improvement in term of comforts etc.. no more third world driving conditions.. everything was an improvement, except the fuel consumption which I had been led to believe would be better than the 38 mpg I was consistently achieving (the c15s would never drop lower than 41 mpg). The recent fuel price hikes convinced me to back off the throttle and 45 mpg is readily attainable. Comfort and drive wise this is the best van I have driven in nearly 2,000,000 miles as a courier but mpg is the god that drives my life now and I am looking elsewhere.

Citroen Berlingo 1.9D 600LX 2006

4 star review

Having driven the old style Berlingo, Citroen have definately improved just about everything on this van. Good dash layout, comfortable driving position, quiet engine, less body roll, a very drivable van. I spend on avarage 6hrs everyday driving so I can honestly say that this is a very comfortable van to drive. Good load space too.
