Citroen Berlingo Image via

We're considering purchasing a Citroen Berlingo. It is the same as a Peugeot Partner. They are assembled in Spain. Makes the price lower. Mechanics say it is best to get one from France.

Honest John likes them and found these minor disadvantages:
"Just two small criticisms: Drivers with big feet might find themselves pressing more than one pedal at once. And there's no automatic. But, hey, you can't have everything, even though Citroen gives you more for less than any other car maker."
Please pray that we would make a good decision.

John passed his motorcycle license test on his first attempt. It isn't easy to drive a huge bike like his through the tight course. The DMV officer gave helpful advice, but two others there that morning failed the test.
