picture of new Berlingo
#1
I don't know what I'm doing but hopefully there a picture of my new Berlingo. It is semi- auto in that you select auto and it drives like an auto but unlike other auto's it has the normal gearbox (6 speed) with a normal clutch operated by means other than your left foot. It has a manual setting with paddles on the steering wheel but I leave it in auto. That, coupled with a sat nav beats driving through Amsterdam with a street map on your lap , and shuddering along in top gear at three miles an hour because you don't know where you are and you've got a belgian truck up your tailpipe.

hi Philip,

Yes it has, but no clutch pedal. The clutch operates by electronic/electric/mechanical means - solenoids,servomotors ,I don't know exactly but I had two campervans , which had similar systems - Sprintshift on a Merc and Tipronic on a Volkswagen. I never used them in their manual mode i.e shifting up and down the gears by means of two paddles on the steering wheel (same as my Berlingo) because the auto knew exactly when to change gear and ,in fact, I found it to be the most economical mode as well as being more relaxing to drive.

OK im with you know, its the same idea as VW and Skoda auto boxes. They say you don't use as much fuel as the conventional auto box.

Could you or someone else post a pic of the dash set up where the gear stick normally is?
