Citroën C3 1.4 HDi Desire 5d (2004/54) - Owner Review

MPV style position which I like but switches and controls in odd places means taking your eye off the road. Steering feels like the wheels are not balanced properly despite having this checked several times and annoying squeaking noises!

Performance

1 out of 5

Swapped a 1.2 Clio for this 1.4 C3 but the Clio left this car standing. Very disappointing when you put your foot down, feels numb, once up to speed is okay but takes a while to get there!

Reliability

4 out of 5

Never let me down yet.

Quite funky looking but too common.

Comfort

4 out of 5

I have a bad back and has not been troubled by this car. Boot lip high which makes getting things in and out difficult.

No problems.

Service

Good but bought from an independant dealer rather than a big chain, smaller is better in terms of service.
