When I bought my new Berlingo, I must admit I was puzzled that they were selling a car – at a very good discount – that had only been registered in November as a demonstrator, and had only done 600 miles. I know there are sometimes reasons for registering cars as demos, in order to fudge sales figures, but it did make me wonder.
I think I understand now. The Berlingo Multispace has received a facelift for 2012, and new models coming onto the forecourts from April will have a changed appearance. Hence their (ex-)demo car was no longer completely representative of what they are selling.
Am I bothered? Not in the least. I like the look of my car, and I like the price even more. Furthermore, I didn’t have to wait 8-12 weeks to get my hands on it.
