Citroën C8 (03-10)


4 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Family man.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They like the doors and the seats.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, I'd like a newer version of it.

What are you likely to buy next?
Depends entirely on money. If I find loads of money, I'll get a Discovery or a Jepp Commander, otherwise I'll get something similar to this.

Buying experience

4 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
October 2012

Did you get a good deal and why?
Fair. My old car was quite poorly, so I didn't have much bargaining room.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Not really. I was looking for a 7-seater, and spotted this one on the forecourt.

What was the dealer like?
Friendly, and seemed to know his way around the car.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Not bad at all.

What's it like to park?
Very good. Good visibility, and accurate parking sensors.

Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Nothing major. A couple of bits of trim have fallen off, the brakes needed tightening after 6 months, and a couple of stray warning lights have come on.

What's most practical about your car?
I can put a fridge in the back without taking any seats out.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
I love the remote, sliding side doors. When you offer someone a lift, and the door just slides open in front of them, it impresses them straight away.
