Citroen berlingo or Peugeot partner
#1
Smile 
Hi all,

Thinking of getting a Berlingo MPV later this year to act as a small camper and bike vehicle. Just wondering what the differences are between the two variations? Is one better than the other? Not sure what engine to get also? The vehicle will be used at weekends only for short to long journeys. Just want reliability and decent mpg. 

Appreciate all the help I can get.

There is no difference, it's the same with different emblems.

My next vehicle will definitely not be a diesel due to the issues with DPFs, Adblue and the like. But petrol Berlingos and Partners are a bit underpowered and rare as rocking horse poop.

If you do use a diesel for infrequent short journeys, it won't be happy. They need to warm up properly and in my experience mine takes 10 miles minimum to get near full engine temperature.

I think the best choice is 1.6 diesel 92 HP 8 valves from 2011 - 2015. The older 16 valves diesels are a bit less reliable, the newer 2015 on are equipped with an Ad Blue system which causes a lot of issues...

Thanks for that, I was wondering when the adblue s**t came into force on these! Was thinking maybe the higher bhp version of the 1.6 engine, any bad thoughts on that?

Bhp is good but no guarantee of reliability, though there seems to make no difference to how good they are or how long they last. 

PAT fluid is from 2010 and Adblue is from 2015/16 - vehicles from this year have both systems. Mileage is one of the issues as they will automatically want a new DPF and PAT fluid at 100k miles. Then if the Adblue pump packs in, it's eye watering to replace. From £1500 via Neo Brothers to £3000 from Citroen.

(The pump cannot be supplied separately and requires the full tank and usually the injector to be replaced too)

Not to mention the post 2016 > vehicles can only have new parts coded to the vehicle by Citroen or an approved garage - that includes PAT fluid reset and DPF replacement or cleaning. If not coded, they don't work.

Good maintenance, frequent oil changes are key, timing belt and water pump a must-do before required, otherwise pretty decent.

Electrics are super complex and prone to issues at older ages and high miles. BSI computer on board is fragile if messed with. If it fails, you've got a big paperweight without a specialist electronics repairers help. Used ones can't just be fitted from a breaker.

I've had 4 over the last 15 years, and been on here for 11 years. A good one is superb, a bad one can drive you mental. Luckily mine have been not tooooo bad but I've had my problems on the B9 ones.

I have seen drive mode selector in Peugeots that my Berlingo does not have, in place of the tiny "cupholder" next to the gear selector.

А year ago I replaced the Ad Blue injector at the home parking, no coding needed, it's easy. 100 Euro on Ebay, so the injector is "not a big deal". But the Ad Blue tank, yes...It costs here ~1400 Euro.
Just recently covered 250.000km (155.000 miles) with no DPF issues expect one fluid refiil at 170.000km .
