On my 07 1:6 hdi van
Would like higher gearing in 5th and a touch more power
Heater is s**t. Cold or too hot.
Suspension abit on the soft side
Brakes aren't very confidance inspiring
Radio and speakers are s**t. Complete change for me
Everything is made with weak metal or plastic so bits break easy
Iv always sed if they made the Mazda323f 1996 1.5 nowadays new is buy one in the morning
O lord I almost forgot, the seats. Uncomfortable and the material isn't the slightest bit breathable so it makes ya sweat with the slightest bit of heat
I wouldn't hesitate to buy another, in fact, I bought a multispace for my missus after 5 years and 70k trouble free motoring in my mk1 van, that's still going strong, I will keep this van untill it dies, i expect to get at least another 4 or 5 years out of it.

I agree about the low 5th gear & brakes,but I love my Berlingo & have no plan to change it. I won't buy a mk3 as it's far too big for me.
Strawberry flavoured windows
I donno what's the cure for the brakes.
If it was a bike
New brake fluid. Done
Better pads. Done
New disks. Done
Bigger master cylinder. Donno where to start
Bigger calipers. Need to do above step first
I voted yes, I used to have a Mercedes V 280, I'm well pleased with my Berlingo. Although the Merc was a nice motor Bernie the Berlingo is frankly much more fun to drive and suits our needs just as well and is a lot cheaper to run.
