Citroën C5 Estate (01-04)

Value

4 out of 5

No VAT offer discounts reflect later trade in prices.

Costs

4 out of 5

After discount the initial costs are about right.

Driving

4 out of 5

Rolls around corners at low speeds.

Performance

4 out of 5

Motorways and cruising, no car better. Turn off into a town and it's tiring.

Reliability

2 out of 5

Rear estate window froze after 9 months 3 visits to dealer to fix. Washer motor valves failed, 3 visits to resolve along with an email to Citroen to resolve. Climate control drips water on mats - dealer did not accept that system works on GAS not water.

The car is unusual, but appealing. Dealer did not bother with customer after the new sale i.e. Ford call back even after a service.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Exceptionally comfortable, but the 'Magic Carpet' suspension is not all it's cracked up to be. Climate control can be erratic.

The A/C, staff could not comprehend that water dripping from the A/C pipework was condensation and that the pipe required insulating, they insisted that there were no leaks - A/C works using a compressed gas.
