Hello

things to be aware of are:

No ESP / stability control as standard on any model .

Space in the cabin is limited for the two passengers and the gear lever mount jabs into the knee of the third occupant.

The 1.6-litre diesel engine feels too strained on the motorway and at higher speeds, negating any economy benefits of this motor.

Seems to be a problem of anti-roll bars repeatedly snapping on Dispatches used as 8/9 seater MPVs.

Recall 05-01-2009: Accelerator pedal may not return to original position after being depressed.

Recall 09-08-2010 Brake linkage rod not made to manufacturing standard and may cause premature wear.

Recall 05-10-2010: Exterior lights may switch off without warning.

Recall 22-02-2011: Fuel may leak due to pipe rubbing on fuel filter support in engine bay.

Recall 11-07-2011
Power steering may fail due to wiring coming into contact with other components.

Recall 31-08-2011: Cylinder head may leak oil and cause engine fire.

Recall 28-03-2012: Front left tyre may have suffered damage from deflation during transport.
