Citroën DS4 (11-15)


5 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Don''t see many on the road so I like to think it says I am an individual / don't need to be part of the crowd.

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
Have had many people stop me to ask about the car - two in the last week: one because he was considering buying one, and the other because he thought that it looked really good and wanted to know more about it.

Would you buy this car again and why?
Yes, but would also consider the DS5 because previously have had C5. Would depend on my needs at the time -bought this smaller one because I no longer need to carry family members so regularly and also carry less equipment for work.

What are you likely to buy next?

Type of dealer you bought from?

Did you buy this car new?

What price did you pay?

When did you buy the car?
September 2011

Did you get a good deal and why?
I was pleased with the deal.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
Having had one second hand then five new Citroens in the last 12 years I knew about the quality and reliability, and really liked the appearance and handling of the car.

What was the dealer like?
I am very impressed with the dealership and have bought from them before.

Driving it

5 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Amazing grip on bends and really good acceleration. Comfortable seats and driving position (I'm 6'2" tall) so long journeys are not a problem.

What's it like to park?
Easy with the rear parking sensors.

Living with it

5 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Alarm sensor on the bonnet - fixed immediately under warranty.

What's most practical about your car?
About 700 miles between visits to the diesel pump (averaging 51+ mpg) and 20,000 mile service interval.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Boot light that is also a torch! Seriously, I don't buy a car for gadgets but for the practical needs of my job: getting me from A to B,C & D efficiently and reliably so I'd have to say the cruise control. I opted out of the Sat-nav as I had a fitted one on the previous car and found it expensive to update.
