hello from a Noob...
#1
Well then good morning all...

I thought I better sign up as the Berlingo has a little problem..

First things first..
HELLOOOO....
I am Toby(Jug) a half Dutch, half Irish nuttar living in the North West.
I run my own little company and am pretty crazy in general.

I recently bought this Berlingo...

I love it..... I was going to drop my 2ltr HDi 306 engine in it, however I have 2 problems...

1: the baby seat that we have does not fit properly so she wants me to sell it..

2: the car has a strange steering wobble.

I will post about the wobble in the technical section in a bit.

so hellooo.... :wave:

If the car seat doesn't fit, then yes, get rid of the seat and buy an ISOFIX one. They are so much better anchored than one secured using the belts; very quick and easy to install as well.

If everything seems to be going well, you have obviously overlooked something.

as for the car seat we have a BeSafe rear-facing seat..
and she will not get rid of it...
They are 5x safer in a collision than a normal seat and it cost me a lot of money so unfortunately it's a no go on getting rid of the seat..

I am selling this one, getting a car and then I am going to lease a Berlingo on the business for business use only I think...

Totally agree about rear facing as the safest, (a link here for those of you with small kids) but I am surprised that your seat wont fit properly in the Berlingo seeing as it has isofix.

Yep sure is...
It ain't Isofix..
the problem is that I need it in the Land Cruiser as well sometimes and therefore I can't get an Isofix one..
I can't justify two expensive car seats so that is why... Sad
