2008 Peugeot Expert LWB 136BHP 2.0 HDI turbo diesel
Could do much better
The side loading door fell off.
The turbocharger started leaking oil, and then died while waiting for the replacement to arrive.
The blue tooth radio locks up and the only way to turn the radio and everything else off is to disconnect the battery.
Paint finish under the bonnet is appalling, yet this is "to spec".
The van has more room than its predecessor, and appeared to be a totally different design, and has a better feel to it as well.
How wrong I was, the side loading door fell off in the pouring rain one day and damaged the bodywork, leaving me to try and reload the door into it's runners.
Driving along one day, and the blue tooth just locked up, and took the key out of the ignition and everything was still running.
When it went back to the dealership, the area manager took one look at it, looked down upon us as if we had dared critisise the build and paint quality.
Really should of learnt our lesson with our previous Citroen, and now we believe we have.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have a Fiat Scudo 2009 (59 reg), which is the same as a Peugeot Expert and Citroen Dispatch.
I too have had the side loading door fall off, but FIAT have said that this is not a fault with the vehicle, it must be the way that it is being opened.
Other problems were the Bluetooth failed, front suspension problems, seat back comes loose, knocking from the rear when going over uneven surfaces, driver's arm rest broken.
Would I recommend this vehicle or manufacturer? NO.

I drive a Peugeot Expert 2.0 120 long wheel base 2009.
New gearbox at 8,000.
Dual mass flywheel replaced. 18,000.
Rear Bridgestone tyres are wearing uneven, like a 50 pence piece, lots of road noise.
Brakes take a lot to get use to.
Unstable on motorway in any wind.
I could go on, but I won't...
