Re: Doblo Speeding Warning - IMPORTANT

Ahh I'll delete my post then. I'll make another post and sticky that so that people know straight away what will and won't be able to do 70.

Sorry everyone, and sorry Niall for doubting you

Re: Doblo Speeding Warning - IMPORTANT

Gents,
The latest 06/07 brochure (new shape) states
1.9 multijet (120) dynamic GVW is 1940 kg
However it looks like the family version is 2030kg

Re: Doblo Speeding Warning - IMPORTANT

hello

just got the manual out found it under a crate of Bud , my manual covers 01-05 , the more ugly front end one ..... hey put ugly betty + a dobbin side by side ... sisters !!!!! (or sister and brother) ...



looking through the weights the only ones which would be affected by the over 2000 kg rule would be mostly the extra capacity / high roof and combi versions..... to much work to list them all...

Noteably not the standard cargo 1.9jtd which is 1935 kg....

Re: Doblo Speeding Warning - IMPORTANT

Looks like its only the facelift 1.9 m-jet Cargo that is affected then! Serves him right for wanting air con in his van..... I havent got it in my one... mind you, I havent got electric windows, side doors, cup holders, wheel trims, central locking or the more economical and powerful 1.9 version.....

Re: Doblo Speeding Warning - IMPORTANT

If anyone is confused just check the rating plate - its a legal requirement on all vehicles. On a Doblo you'll typically find it if you open the bonnet, then look on top of the leading front panel (left-hand side). The metal plate quotes the maximum gross vehicle weight; then the maximum vehicle train weight, then both axles - front then rear. Dougal, a 2005 1.9JTD Active is rated 1875Kg / 2975kg / 1300kg / 1000kg. Panic ye not !!!

Re: Doblo Speeding Warning - IMPORTANT

I'm new to the forum but I thought I'd check out the Doblo stuff first. This all sounds a bit worrying as I own a Doblo Family. Surely weight limits only apply to goods vehicles? I mean how much does a Rolls Royce weigh, or a Maybach? Aren't they allowed to do 70?

Re: Doblo Speeding Warning - IMPORTANT

I've looked at the highway code page, and the 70 limit on dual carriageways is for "Cars and motorcycles" and "car derived vans up to 2 tonnes maximum laden weight". The limit is 60 on a dual carriageway for "Goods vehicles".
The question is, is the Doblo a car, or a car-derived van?
If it's a car, then normal car speed limits apply. If it's a car-derived van, then the lower speed limits apply.
The Maybach etc can go at car speed limits despite its weight because it's a car, and not a car-derived van.
Clear eh?

Re: Doblo Speeding Warning - IMPORTANT

Oh, I see, the Doblo is really a van with seats and windows. That is a bit worrying. I certainly won't be driving at 60 on dual carriageways though. If I get nicked for speeding I'll let you know .

Re: Doblo Speeding Warning - IMPORTANT

Richard if you look at the plate under the bonnet you'll find that your Doblo weighs less than the 2ton gross vehicle weight - all the passenger versions do whether you have 7 or 5 seats, it's the same vehicle with 2 extra seats slapped in the back. This only really affects the extra weight cargo versions

As far as the argument with whether the Doblo is a Car Derived Van or Car... It's classed as an MPV on your V5 - if it was a Car Derived Van it should legally say so on your V5 under the vehicle type. The definition of a Car Derived van is that of a vehicle that left the factory as a van and has since been converted to carry passengers.

Re: Doblo Speeding Warning - IMPORTANT

Thanks for that Ozzie. It's only that someone earlier in the thread mentioned that the 7 seater weighs over 2 tonnes but I didn't bother to check my cars plate.

Re: Doblo Speeding Warning - IMPORTANT

Check it just in case!

As far as I know they didn't uprate the weight because it's a seven seater, in place of those seats you can carry half a ton, and two people do not weight half a ton

As I said check though, I wouldn't want to be held responsible

I've got the new family version and it does say 2030kg under the bonnet.
