2008 Citroen Dispatch HDI 1.6 turbo diesel
Oil cooler pipe fell off 2 weeks into owning it; luckily sorted under the warranty.
Fuel pump seized and took out the cam belt and valve guides. That cost £2200.00. This happened just 8 weeks after a main service.
After having the earlier model Dispatch, I thought I might treat myself to something more modern.
The engine is underpowered for a 1.6; to be fair it is to be expected. Buy a 1.9 if you want one of these.
Comfy enough, though I think the seats are too soft and the fabric wears fast on the edges getting in and out all the time.
The van feels lightweight and flimsy compared to the older model.
Fuel consumption is not too good for a modern engine.
Drives like a car and handles OK.
Go for one with a warranty.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
