Citroën C3 1.4i Desire 5d (2005/05) - Owner Review

Incredibly spacious in the cabin, for the driver and the front passenger it feels like a people carrier there is that much space

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Gearbox is tricky to master at first, due to it's impossibility to hold on a slope, and the digital display makes it tricky until you get used to it. Fine once you have been driving for a while, quite nippy for a 1.4

What's it like to park?
Easy, the car eases into all small gaps and spaces

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The first C3 I had (automatic) kept cutting out for no reason, so I swapped it for a manual. A warning light came on once on the M25. Citroen are not the most reliable cars I'm afraid

What's most practical about your car?
Incredibly spacious in the cabin, for the driver and the front passenger it feels like a people carrier there is that much space

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
The stereo is pretty good, and the stereo controls on the stalk are well designed and postioned
