    Do you own one and service it? How many out there do their own servicing like changing of disc brakes, suspension, timing belts and crank shaft pulleys?

    drives like a petrol car, just that it isn't as easy to stall.

    servicing is very important to prevent excessive black smoke. If you skimp on cheap lubricants and skip air filter changes, black smoke forms easily. Other than that, it's really no difference from cars.

    Ask you one question, how often do you change the timing belt and crankshaft pulley? Where do you service your vehicle?

    my vehicle is only 2+ years old.. don't need to change timing and the c/s pulley yet.

    I used to service my vehicle with Advanced motor (under warranty) then after warranty serviced at Bt Merah (friend's garage) closed down, now I service with Kok Li at AMK ind park 2. He specialises in vans, so he knows what he's doing.

    May I know what is your mileage on your vehicle? You have never replaced your timing belt? Next time you service your timing belt, can I have the worn out belt?

    huh? berlingo? pay few K more get fiat doblo 1.9L better, with turbo and bigger CC, you have the extra power when you need it...somemore road tax and COE still the same, higher resale value next time.

    Surprisingly, the fuel consumption of this 1.9L turbo charged engine is better than NA engine with lower CC (such as berlingo)...i think only the 1.3L version of doblo can beat this 18.5 km/L
