Citroën C5 Hatchback (01-04)

Value

4 out of 5

Lots of extras that you would have to pay for in some other cars.

Costs

3 out of 5

Good fuel economy. Full tank cost £50 but will do 600 miles on this servicing costs at main dealers will be very high when out of warranty.

Driving

3 out of 5

Suspension knocks, even over small bumps. Constant knocking noise from rear suspension.

Performance

3 out of 5

It does what a 2 litre diesel is expected to do, but nothing special.

Reliability

1 out of 5

Mechanically starts first time, but don't trust the electrics - they have a mind of their own.

Image

4 out of 5

Image ahead of its time. Large spacious cabin, cavenous boot, could do with a rear wash wipe bonnet and screen easily chipped.

Comfort

5 out of 5

Like driving sitting in an armchair, but no armrest can be tiring on long journeys.

Service

Citroen have flooded market with value for money cars, but dealers have not grown so not enough to do work. Ignorant, arrogant and useless, so sold car and bought a Ford.
