That's a positive note, thank you
I see you mention going for an Automatic.....do remember that the Berlingo is an automated manual gearbox (EGS) with a single plate dry clutch. I have two, a Berlingo 6 speed & a C3 5 speed, both EGS, love them both.
BUT you cannot drive them exactly like a torque converter full automatic. You will burn the clutch out!
A dealer told me that 85% of EGS users get on fine but about 15% have clutch trouble.
Because of this Citroen are replacing the EGS with a conventional 6 speed automatic gearbox in all their autos. I don't know when this will occur with the Berlingo. I'm told that the new auto uses a bit more fuel.....
Not sure how you can drive it differently as the cpu will be controlling the clutch and gears, we tend to be 'steady away'
Thank for your input!
The best thing you can do is take one for a good test drive to see if you can get on with the gear box some get on with it other can't then you can make the choice .
Thats good advice, I'll give it a go
No problem every body like's different things we don't drive the same way so it mite suite you.
It's great - my 1.6 XTR Auto was my first ever auto, and there's no way I'll go back to wiggling a stick around. That gearstick and clutch nonsense belongs in the past, along with the starting handle and trafficator.
It's much better with the brake pedal off a manual fitted - I couldn't get on with the sofa-sized pedal you get as standard.
