Citroën C5 Saloon (08-18)

Summary

4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
It looks like the equivalent bmw 5 series or merc etc so it puts you in the same bracket as them.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
I went from a very quick sports estate to this! They cant make it out.

Would you buy this car again and why?
yes. Its a lot of car for the money.

What are you likely to buy next?
I had my last car for 8 1/2 years so who knows.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Franchise

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£12,500

When did you buy the car?
May 2010

Did you get a good deal and why?
You never ever get a 'good deal' when you buy or sell a car! You always pay too much when you buy and get too little when you sell. Thats a fact of life when it comes to cars.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I wanted a diesel automatic.

What was the dealer like?
The Citroen head office is very new, bright and spaceous. The salesman was a real human being, a genuine person, not the usual robot with a script.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Surprisingly brisk. Confortable, floaty suspension. Light steering. And very quiet for a diesel.

What's it like to park?
Not easy to see out thanks to big A and B pillars which gave it a 5 star ncap rating. Rear sensors are a big help. It is longer than a standard parking space so you could get a fine at a parking meter!

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
The air-con was not working on delivery.

What's most practical about your car?
It has four doors and a boot.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I had a tow bar fitted. A must have on any vehicle.
