Relatively cheap to service.

Something cheap and nasty you might buy the au pair to drive the kids around in... Don't know what possessed me.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Odd feeling driving position, no matter how I adjust the seat or the wheel. Steering wheel feels off on way, foot controls another, seat offset to the right.

Not been broken into yet... but then who would want to.

A Citroen Assured Used Car is no assurance!

Problems

Bodywork
Peeling paint, scratches/marks really easily; just brush up against one and see!

Engine
Seems to use oil, even thought it's a low mileage car.

Gearbox
OK.

Other
The front suspension mountings were replaced not long after I bought it, at less than 2 years old with 19k on the clock. Apparently it's a common fault.
