Post: RE: 2019 Pat fluid ?

What’s confusing me is that my previous 17plate van had both ad blue and pat fluid. I assumed that k9 had both ,obviously I’m incorrect but happy !

I’ve been told by a dealer that my 2019 K9 does not have a pat fluid system, obviously I’m pleased but I understood that all post 2015 Berlingos had a pat fluid system. Can anyone confirm what the de...

Pleased for you Tree, in contrast I’m still using the dealers Berlingo which I have put 15k on it. Total mileage in their vans is 50k plus!

Post: RE: Dropped a valve ?

I’m guessing that making the extra oil changes helped my engine to get to 111k before self destructing. My loan Berlingo has now done 35k (56000km) - I’m wondering what they would say if their van s...

I’m so surprised at the situation, If the van were mine I would ask for a replacement rather than a repair. I’ve been faffing around for 4 months with mine and engines are never the same after a deale...
