New berlingo- which engine to go for?
hi guys,

i would really appreciate your opinion on the current line up of berlingo engines. i visited my dealer today and he had a 850 pay load 1.6 hdi 90 in the showroom and I've got the price down to £12k inc vat. Ive read a bit about the turbo problems associated with the 1.6 diesel but with a 3 year warranty and if i take out the servicing plan which is £299 i should be able to get it serviced on time every year and if i did have a turbo problem within the first 3 years it would be covered? or do i look at the same van but with the euro 6 engine with either 100 or 120ps? these have the add blue tank which i have on my car which can be a faff to keep refilling but might be more reliable than the 1.6hdi? If it was you would you buy the older engine or the latest engine? both are the brand new most current model available from the showroom just different engines. oh and the one i described above is black with electric foldable mirrors. many thanks in advance...will
It was only early 1.6hdi that had problems all sorted now by design/oil - sounds a good price just buy the one that is the best deal for you.

oh really? so is the 1.6hdi 90 generally considered to be an ok engine now the issues have been sorted? Just to recap the model I'm looking at is the berlingo panel van 1.6hdi 90 enterprise spec 

many thanks...
No worries very good engine

they are fitted by BMW, Suzuki, Peugeot, Ford and some others i have forgotten. I have read that it is more a Ford engine than Citroen but i don't believe that as its a ver good engine lol

i was not going to buy the van based on the negative issues i saw on the internet regarding the turbos etc. everything else was great about the van so maybe il reconsider now! Don't suppose you know if the 850 payload has any negative impact on the drive over the 650 payload? i presume the 850 has stiffer springs? thanks for you help...
I believe it does have stiffer suspension but the ride in the Berlingos is very good anyway so i suspect you will be fine.

Dont believe all you read on the internet or what you hear from so called mechanics lol

Like i once read - if the 1.6hdi is a crap engine then why are there loads of them on the road the way people go on about them you would expect to see one blown up on every street corner lol
1.6 hdi current production is reliable engine nothing specific to worry about
Forget about 1.6 petrol with turbo .. citroen said it's improved but forums (ford ,mini, citroen) say different

I've just got a 1.6 Feel 99bhp and its got more than enough power to shift stuff around. It can be a bit sluggish when setting off but flies once up to speed

Pretty good on diesel too despite me being heavy footed sometimes

I plan to tow my caravan with it and can't see there being any issues
I've got a 90 and it seems fine to me. My previous car was 150bhp, so it's obviously slower but it doesn't feel underpowered. I've driven a few base model hire cars in the past that were downright infuriating to drive, but it certainly isn't.
