Hi From Scotland
#1
Hi Everyone :wave:,

I've traded in my Ford Mondeo ST Estate (nice car but something always going wrong with it) for a 2008 Mk2 Multispace 1.6 HDI 16V Desire in red (metallic red, not sure what the official colour is). It's almost 3 years old but only has 9200 miles on the clock - perfect starting point for me since I average about 15,000 a year.

I drove a Renault Kangoo van for 3 years so the Berlingo driving experience is not unfamiliar. It's only been a few hours but I'm already extremely pleased with the car and I'm glad I held out for the Desire model with the modutop which is a nice feature.

The only thing I don't like about the car is the lack of reach adjustment in the steering wheel - when I position the seat so that my legs are comfortable I find that I'm a little too far away from the wheel Sad

However, the car should be perfect for me since I have a young daughter, and another child on the way, and I'm occasionally allowed out to go hill walking, when space for rucksacks and bikes is important.

It looks set to be a nice weekend so I'll take some pictures of it then.

Does anyone know where I can get one of these protective nets that goes from the back of the rear seats up to the roof to prevent items in the boot falling forward? I think this would be a useful thing to have to make use of the height of the car.

Cheers,
Alan

Hello, Alan.

Good to have another member from Scotland!

Interesting comment about the reach adjustment for the steering wheel. I've never had it on a car I've owned, so I guess that's why I've never noticed a problem!

Hi Alan and welcome to the forum. I know what you mean about the driving position, I invariably end up with a sort of London bus driver look. Although it is not uncomfortable, it does take a bit of getting used to. Anyway, all the best with the new purchase and hope you enjoy it.

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

Hi Alan,
I use a cargo net in my van, loads of hooks to secure with and very versatile.
Look on flea bay, paid about 6 english pounds plus postage for mine.
Enjoy the weather and the Forum,
Martin.

Hi Alan. The load net for Mk2 was available as an accessory from Citroen main dealer.
