What is your advice on buying a 2013 Citroen Dispatch Combi?

Do you have any advice on buying a 2013 Citroen Dispatch Combi? It's done 45,000 miles. Are they expensive to repair?

Answered by Dan Powell
The Citroen Dispatch is a great all-rounder. However, as with any used combi window van with seats, I’d want to know how it has been used before handing over my money. Has it been run as a taxi? Has it been used for mainly short runs from cold in a town or city? If the answer is yes to either of those questions then I’d be wary of DPF problems: vans.honestjohn.co.uk/van-news/comment/van-drivers.../
