Citroën C3 1.4 HDi 16V Exclusive 5d (2002/52) - Owner Review

Very nippy and faster than figures suggest, but some body roll at speed round corners.

Citroën C3 (02-10)

Value

4 out of 5

Bought for £8,400 when 16 months old, so cheap buy.

Costs

1 out of 5

Don't believe the fuel figures - I drive 60 miles a day on the motorway with no traffic and the best I ever ever ever get is 57mpg. Reliably informed by the dealer area manager that Citroen are 'economical' with the truth about fuel figures.

Driving

4 out of 5

Very nippy and faster than figures suggest, but some body roll at speed round corners.

Performance

5 out of 5

As I said, very quick off the mark and all the way up to 100mph.

Reliability

4 out of 5

No problems so far, and I've already covered 7,000 miles since Jan '04.

Image

4 out of 5

Looks great from some angles and, well, odd (but not bad) from others. Quite like it.

Comfort

4 out of 5

You get used to the auto climate control and wipers, as well as the nice comfy velour seats.

Security

4 out of 5

Deadlocks (engaged automatically), alarm, all in all, quite good.

Service

5 out of 5

Very good service from my Arnold Clark dealer, but Citroen are avoiding the issue of the mythical fuel economy.

As grumbled about before, the fuel economy is not what it says, but then, it's still good.
