What does this car say about you?

Citroen new "no" maybe second hand after a year when problems have been ironed out.

What are you likely to buy next?
I own a mazda 3 automatic now. I looked for reliability, and judging by the build quality compared to the citroen i think i made a good decision, no rattles or squeaks, the cabin does`nt shudder when going over bumps.
