Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Style, understated. Not a "badge man".

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They like it and were suprised how good looking it is. Impressive inside and comfortable. They like the ambi-light and sound system.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, I would like the top spec one next, with the active suspension.

What are you likely to buy next?
Citroen again. We have a Berlingo too and never a problem.

Buying experience

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£6,995

When did you buy the car?
October 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
Paid & traded in for what I expected. Never get a good deal from a dealer anyway.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Economy, space & comfort. Motorway eater!

What was the dealer like?
Polite, and typical.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
I like it - gear shift is positive. Steering light at low speed. It eats miles effortlessly. Could have more feedback through the steering on country roads. ESP ASR as standard - have yet to find out how good "snow-motion" is yet. I like the black panel function for night driving. The 9" LCD colour display and electronic dash is just great.

What's it like to park?
Needs rear parking sensors - which mine didn't have - £185 from Citroen dealer fitted and woking as standard spec. is a bargain.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Earthing fault due to corroded terminals. RAC fixed it. (Engine undertray missing, possible cause).

What's most practical about your car?
It goes - it arrives.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Very polite SAT NAV (use of word "please")that re-routes on traffic message service when showing delays. Saves hours stuck in traffic.
