Comfortable, but poor fuel economy


Gearbox selector bearing, clutch 58,000 miles.

General Comments:

This van is a very comfortable drive, much better than the Berlingo I had before.

Comforts are, electric windows, mirrors, central locking, and CD player, which all still work fine.

Fuel economy is not very good; the best I got was 600 miles on a full tank driving carefully at 60 mph. Normal runarounds get around 25 - 30 gallon.

The engine always starts first time and is the most reliable. Best top speed 102 mph.

Body work dents easily.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
