What dont you like about your Berlingo.
Well I'm going to post a couple of dislikes,

1, Steering is just too light and no feel at motorway speeds.

2, Mine is pulling to the left, tracking i guess needs doing.

3, That stupid 20min mode, And the even bigger stupid need to have to start the bl**dy thing and run the car for however long.
Which idiot thought that up!!!

4, It's too soft and squidgy too.
And that's just it's good points?
Strawberry flavoured windows  Dodgy
Main PITA is the rear middle seat belt fixing point. The seat belt can shoot off like a missile towards the rear side window when disconnected from anchor point and it gets in the way of the passenger side rear seat.

Well I can see that being a PITA that seatbelt but I don't very often carry more than one passenger anyway so shouldn't cause many issues.

If you think that's good points i would hate to hear your worst points.:lol::lol:

But to be very honest I do like it alot and I think I have made the right choice??Confusedcratch:
I agree about the ECO mode thing. What idiot thought that up. Apart from that though, I'm very pleased with mine.

Stupid computer!

MK 2 Berlingo ....1.9D

I hate the pedal layout with a passion, I often wear heavy boots which doesn't help matters though I've never had a problem with other vehicles before.
I used to hate the heavy throttle but sorted this...
I hate the clutch for being so heavy though I have a plan...!
I hate the brake pedal as your foot collides with the pedal arm instead of the sitting on the foot plate.. again I have a plan !
I'm not too fussed on the throttle pedal as it has a ribbed foot plate and you can feel it under your shoe..again I have a plan to sort this.... I will elaborate in due course when time / work / hobbies / working on the boys car allows me time to play.....

I don't like the thought of impending electrical / electronic / computer related doom / paying a garage ... Agghhh..............and reading everyones problems on this forum doesn't help...(.tongue in cheek )

However I actually rather like my Berlingo and so does my wife...

Geoff ( and Vanessa ).

Oh yes and the offset driving stance is weird !
Another ECO MOD hater here! Really dislike the drivers seat, comfy enough on a long run but it offers no support. Mine also has an annoying PAS leak I cant get to the bottom of either and its feeling abit slugging these days (stage 2 map on its way though Big Grin )

Apart from rewiring the radio so its got a permanent live there isn't a fix that Citroen can do to turn it off I'm guessing.

Where are you getting it remapped to PeteA??

Thinking that might be an idea more POWER!!! Seats are comfy though I must admit and i can see how the small pedal box would affect big feet so i just drive in me slippers.
Once I've got the intercooler fitted I'm wanting to get it mapped to about 150 bhp and lots of torques Smile I struggle with the pedals when I'm wearing my steelies aswell..But I am a size 11 lol.

1. Eco Mode... Why oh why do we need it exactly?!? Rolleyes

2. It's kind of soft & wallowy in the suspension departmnent (but then that can also be a good thing at times).

3. Power steering feels very light with little feedback.

4. Driving position, is it just me or is it offset to the left slightly???

To be honest the above points are very minor niggles I've found, on the whole I really like my Blingo'.

The +ve aspects far outweigh the -ve ones, you'll find things you don't like in any car to be honest.
