2004 Citroen Berlingo LX 2.0 HDI turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Been a good car until now
Just went to use the car, and heard a noise from the front off side wheel. Got out to check and the front tyre had exploded. Removed the wheel to find a suspension spring had broken and gone though the tyre.
Car was OK when used last night.
Interior fittings are poor. Glove box does not fit, seats show fittings though the covers.
Good performance and MPG.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I bought a Berlingo 2.2 HDI Multispace from new. Same thing happened at 53,000 miles; front offside spring broke whilst the car was standing outside, and went through the tyre. Citroen refused to renew despite other models either side being recalled for the same fault.
Cost me £800+ as both sides had to be replaced.
Now gear selection is gone. Will never buy another car from this company.

Same car as of the 4 th Nov, front nearside spring broken again, was OK the last time I drove it, useless Citroen, I would not trust them to make a wheel barrow.
New alternator fitted for £400. Both front springs fitted for £800. Tail gate opens when the car chassis flexes. The only good point is the 2 litre engine, which goes from service to service and burns no oil.
The only car I have owned in 50 years of motoring that needed the front springs replaced.
At least this time it did not rip the front tyre apart, like the last offside one did.
Nothing from Citroen, even though they had a recall for the models either side of mine.
Stay away from this French rubbish.

I have had a 2.0 litre new since 2004. When things were past their sell by date, I have had them replaced. IE front disc due to her indoors hard braking, timing belt.
Never replaced any hoses yet, both suspension springs, love the car, 100000 plus miles, never a problem.
It took me to Croatia last year, the engine never even got overheated on the way there or when I drove all the way back from Pula to Calais, only stopping to refuel.
