Driving it

1 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
EGS model is horrendous at overtaking/roundabouts: pulling onto a roundabout it'll drop down from 3rd to 1st! whipping you forward/back..pretty scary when you've got an Arctic coming round at you. It happens on straights and motorways too, go to overtake, in 3rd or 4th, level with the vehicle your overtaking oncoming traffic, it'll down to 3rd,then 2nd almost instantly! You've got to drive like your taking it for a walk,never overtake, make sure the roundabout is completely empty (just ignore the angry people beeping behind you).

What's it like to park?
Fine I have parking sensors.

Living with it

2 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Plenty, * Bearing failed * uneven rapid brake wear due loose fitting that hold the pads in place. * Depolution warning sign comes on off all the time. Citroen do not know what the problem is (!) * constant and excessive vibrations through the steering wheel, despite have laser realignment carried out at cost. * And most costly, the whole unit had to be replaced under agreement with Citroen (however Arnold Clarke replaced it it a reconditioned unit not a new one) now this one is starting to go the same way too.....

What's most practical about your car?
* Plenty of storage compartments. * versatility of space management: seat up down/split forward/back.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
* Parking sensors * Rear window opening (on hydraulic arms) option other than full boot. * Side and rear pull up curtains. * front central Cooler Box * Rear plug socket * All round electric windows.
