Performance

2 out of 5

Very sluggish gearbox in the lower gears, dithers when selecting lower gears especially when approaching roundabouts, junctions etc. Acceleration up through gears is smooth

Reliability

4 out of 5

Only one refusal to start - system had a 'bug' in it and needed to be rebooted

Friendly service, but expensive

Problems

Bodywork
No problems as yet, but still early days. This is my third Citroen and bodywork is not usually an issue.

Engine
Plenty of poke, no problems here

Gearbox
Indecisive when changing gears. Pregnant pause between lower gears when approaching junctions/ roundabouts etc.
