Hi everyone,

I am seriously considering purchasing a B-max.

It is 2015, 45360 miles, diesel 1.5, titanium spec, 75ps. Three previous owners.

What would your advice be regarding this car? Any common issjes we should be aware of?

Thanks!

You will soon not be able to drive it into city centres and if you live in London, I would imagine the Congestion Charge will cost you. Get a 1.0 litre Turbo model - mine will do 117 mph (apparently) and I've managed to get 46.4 mpg over 36k miles of owning the car.

More serioysly, other than avoiding the auto gearbox, there seem to be no other major issues with the B Max and the diesel engine is very good compared to most oil burners

Thanks for that @cianpars! I'm actually in Ireland so no congestion charges here yet. Good to hear there seem to be no other major issues. It's a not a very common model here so wanted to get some feedback! Thanks.

should be a good choice.
though the diesel is the lowest power of the range,
also it requires a good 'hot' run occasionally to clear the dpf
