Summary

3 out of 5

What does this car say about you?
Why do you have to be different!

What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?
They generally don't talk to me!

No. I'd just buy a C4!

What are you likely to buy next?
I've just bought a Skoda Octavia and given my car to my wife. I am a very lucky man!

Buying experience

3 out of 5

Type of dealer you bought from?
Independent

Did you buy this car new?
Used

What price did you pay?
£10,600

When did you buy the car?
November 2013

Did you get a good deal and why?
We negotiated for 4 hours and I got £50 off.

Is there any special reason why you bought this car?
I do 32k a year, I buy a low mileage car that I think will loose as little money and cost as little to run as possible. For the last two years, my choice was a Citroen, that has now done 74,000 miles.

What was the dealer like?
Large car network, they transported a car between sites (some 120 miles) just for me to say, it looked better in the picture, and buy another car off them. They also gave me coffee.

Driving it

4 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
Considering it is a Citroen C4 on stilts, not bad! There's a little bit of body roll and a good level of play for it not to bang and crash along the roads, but pieces of card are appearing wedged into trim to stop it buzzing!

What's it like to park?
Visibility is pretty poor, not just for parking, but also for checking behind pulling out. Pillars in the way, small rear window, thank god for sensors.

Living with it

3 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
I bought a French car, so I expect quirky, not faulty! The bluetooth is shocking, on occassion the stereo has locked up saying I'm still in a call. Reboot the car, I mean turn the ignition off, lock it, get back in and it is okay, however on one occassion it did not go again, so I pulled all the fuses. That worked! Citroen know it is a fault across the range!

What's most practical about your car?
It goes faster than I walk (pending traffic conditions)!

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Guilletine sun visors (everyone loves them). Hidden door handles (no one can figure out how to get in). Rear Windows (how do people in the back order at mcdonalds?).
