Berlingo 625 Enterprise (2015)
#1
I have been offered a low-mileage example for a good price. Is there anything I should be cautious about? Any particular problems? Anything I should check before buying?

Do the timing belts typically need replacing? At what mileage?

Just had my timing belt done. According to the garage I used, it's due at 110,000 miles. I'd ask if it's been done if the vehicle is around that mark. I'm assuming that it's an adblue model, and it may have the eolys fluid too. The latter is in a pig of a place to get to, but should last 100k or there about. Mine was refilled at 112k when it still had 11% in the tank, but I was getting warnings for engine faults at that point.

Hopefully this is helpful to some degree.

Thank you Luke. The mileage on this one is approx half that! Should be OK for a while! I am not SURE about the AdBlu situation. I have never heard of EOLYS! I have looked up the specs on a few websites, one says Euro 6 emissions.. another says Euro 5b....

Timing Belt [and water pump] should be changed at 100,000 or 10 years according to Citroen [whichever is sooner]

A 2015 van will have both a DPF and EOLYS fluid. 

If the van only has low miles, I would check very carefully for any DPF warnings/issues as a clogged DPF can be an expensive fix. They tend to get clogged if only used on lots of short journeys. If that's all okay then if you buy it, make sure you give it a good run every so often to avoid DPF issues.

EOLYS was used for a few years before the Adblue came along to reduce emissions. The early EOLYS ones [not sure of the exact dates] had an EOLYS pouch which in in the rear wheel arch behind the liner but they are prone to leaking as stones/grit invariably find their way into the area and can damage the pouch. Later vehicles the pouch was replaced by a solid container but both need to be refilled @ about 100K or sooner and normally can only be done by a PSA garage [or a good independent that specializes in PSA vehicles]as it requires resetting of the electronics after refilling. You can get a refill warning a lot sooner, if the previous users did frequent fill-ups of fuel. In that, I mean if they only used to put a small amount of diesel in each time and did frequent fill-ups, then some fluid is injected into the fuel on each refuel, so the pouch can empty a lot quicker.

Other than that, as with any van check the rear springs/suspension as often vans get overloaded. Luckily springs and shocks on the rear of this model are both cheap and easy to replace.

Also check the turbo isn't noisy under load/acceleration as that can point to a turbo on the way out.

Thanks multispacer!

Mine is a 2018 plate 1.6 blue hdi. As I said earlier, 112k was when my warning came for eolys. Not sure if the garage was correct with 110k for the timing belt now.

Wakou: You've got lucky finding one that age that low mileage! Although mine was previously owned by a rental company.

Check the rear wheel tyre wear is even across the width of the tread.
Check for broken front springs and seized rear Calipers
Check the horn works.
Check for rust under the front inside of the bonnet.
Check the gaskets on the door handles
It is on my to do list.
But not right at the top
