There is a Citroen site that you can visit in Malaysia, which can assist you finding a way to sort your problem. At least they can guide you to reasonably priced workshops. Here's the site http://forum.autoworld.com.my/, look under Forum for Le Club Citroen.

I have a 2002 Berlingo, which has covered 120,000 kms. When it does get close to the next scheduled service, the car does occasionally go to a lower idle speed, but has yet to stall on me. It hasn't missed a beat in the past 3.5 years.

For me this car is an absolute gem. It certainly beats the rest of the similarly priced cars in Malaysia.

Previous carCitroen ZX

Summary:

Try her out and she will surprise you

Faults:

Air-bag light keeps blinking due to sensitive switch. To be replaced under 3 year warranty.

Nothing else.

General Comments:

Very versatile vehicle.

Thought I was downgrading from my ZX, but this car handles just as well except there is some roll on the tight corners... but can still attack the corners.

Holidays with the family is absolute fun. Can take in whatever the kids want to bring along.

45 liters will fill her up giving me a range anywhere between 580kms to 700kms.

Will cruise at 120km/h and top a little around 155 km/h. Cross winds will push her, but trust her and keep focused ahead and all will be well.

20,000 km servicing intervals are excellent. Cost of maintenance has dropped a lot for me. Just about to take her in for 80,000 kms and the engine still purrs along and petrol consumption is constant. Doesn't seem to consume any oil... but the oil is really black now.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Black oil= looking for trouble. Just change your oil every 10000 kms, it's the way to go for many years of trouble free motoring.

In reply to the above comment, thanks for the advise, I will be talking to my service centre with regard to the oil. The oil I use now is fully synthetic.
