What's it like to drive?
Its nice to drive, but the constant resonating/rasping sound when you accelerate/change gears is very off putting and annoying after a while...

Have you had any problems with the car?
The new Citroen C3 Visiodrive has a resonating sound (coming from what you think is a blown exhaust) and I;ve had the car back twice. I am the first and only owner of the new C3 in Hull and at first they acknowledged that yes there was a resonating and rasping sound (it sounds like a boy race who's had the card doctored!!!) and then all of a sudden when I;d taken it in again, they told me that it was a characteristic of the car......... even though I said I wouldn;t have bought a boy racer car... but cause they have nothing to compare with (and consequently its so new had no ther complaints about this yet) I have been fobbed off!!!! Yes, people do look at me driving the new C3, but not because of its looks, its because of the boy racer sound it makes...... given I;m a Grandmother of 5
