Peugeot J5 Overview
The Peugeot J5 is classed as a light commercial van which is produced by the French automobile manufacturing company Peugeot. The J5 was in production from 1981 to 1993 and was parts of a joint venture between the PSA Peugeot Citroen Group and Fiat. The PSA Group was formed in 1975 when Peugeot took over Citroen. The Fiat version is known as the Ducato and the Citroen version as the C25. These vehicles are all built at the Sevel plant in Italy. In the UK this vehicle was sold as the Talbot Express, as Peugeot owned Talbot. The Talbot brand was discontinued in 1992. These vehicles were commonly used as bases for motor homes and the diesel engines were really good. They were reliable, well built and were decently priced. Does this sound anything like your experience of this vehicle?

Peugeot J5 History
The Peugeot J5 was introduced in 1981 and was marketed as the Talbot Express in the UK during its lifetime. The Fiat Ducato and Citroen C25 were the the same vehicles but branded under their own names. In 1991 the J5 had a facelift, which meant the introduction of the series 2. It had a larger grille, with not much else changing. This vehicle struggled outside of the French market, as the Fiat Ducato seemed to be the popular choice outside of France. The Peugeot Boxer replaced the J5 in 1993.
The Peugeot J5 was available in 1.8L petrol and 1.9 or 2.5L diesel engines. The diesel engines were the more economical, offering around 25mpg which is not bad.
