Citroën C4 Coupe 1.6i 16V VTR Plus 3d (2006/56) - Owner Review

Very spacious in and out. The rear seats have great leg room. Drivers seat is lovely and is a bucket seat. It feels perfect to drive, has a large, flat bottom boot with a good scuff-guard lip as standard. Great economy with fuel; I can easily get 350-400 miles out of a tank of Petrol with a mix of country roads, motor ways and dual carriage ways.

Summary

5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
I dont believe cars say anything about you, unless your driving a porsche through being bald and in a midlife crisis.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
The love the style, look and its combfyness.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Id love a VTS for its performance, but then I love my 1.6. Has enough to overtake on a full tank of petrol without making you doubt its ability.

What are you likely to buy next?
Id stay with this or buy a DS5.

Buying experience

5 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Didn't buy from a dealer

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£3,450

When did you buy the car?
August 2011

Did you get a good deal and why?
I paid £3450 for the car. It had 31k millage on the clock and was an ex-motability car with Citroen FSH. The car had done 1 mile from its MOT in April until August when I purchased it. The owner had a company car and kept the C4 in the garage.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Lovd the shape from following the WRC. Had a choice of This or a 5dr Mark 2 Megane with the 'bum'. Changed from a phase 2 Megane coupe to a C4 Coupe.

What was the dealer like?

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Wonderful. Its responsive, you can feel through the steering, the car feels like an extension of your body, you can easily tell how far back you can reverse into a space and if you will fit through a gap.

What's it like to park?
Very easy.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
No mechanical faults. Everythings works supremely. Due to it standing, I purchased new Brembo discs and pads £200 fitted, and I decided to purchase new tyres all the way round at £600 for the Michellin Pilot Sport 3 tyres.

What's most practical about your car?
Very spacious in and out. The rear seats have great leg room. Drivers seat is lovely and is a bucket seat. It feels perfect to drive, has a large, flat bottom boot with a good scuff-guard lip as standard. Great economy with fuel; I can easily get 350-400 miles out of a tank of Petrol with a mix of country roads, motor ways and dual carriage ways.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Love the speed limiter! Such a brilliant device. Easy to set, so I put it at 80mph on the motorway, foot combfortably resting on the accelerator and it wont do more than 81mph. If I did need to do more, put my foot to the floor and pass the kick down and it will immobilise the speed limiter, lift off, let it go below 80mph say and its automatically back on.
