Driving it

3 out of 5

What's it like to drive?
I have the 1.6 diesel which isn’t fast but once up to speed is adequate. Unfortunately i have to use the EGS gearbox to get there which is like sitting on a plane being kicked in the back by the kid sitting behind you every time I change gear. Ride is nice ..

What's it like to park?
For a large car its quite good. Visibility wise.

Living with it

1 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
Lots, Electric windows get stuck down, headlight / tail lights blow every few months (in 3 years I have had 7 headlight bulbs & 9 tail light bulbs). Wheel arch linings come off at high speeds. I believe the 12v sockets has a power serge problem due to having 3 failed satnavs and a mobile phone, all of which were plugged in at the time of fail. Mainly though there has been something wrong with the track of the car since day 1. I do 40k miles a year mainly on motorways and in 110K miles I have had 36 tyres. YES 36. When in warranty I kept bringing the issue up but got no were at the dealer. My company has now banned all French cars not just Citroen off our list which is a shame for Renualt.

What's most practical about your car?
7 seats.

Favourite gadget, option or accessory?
Being able to lower tail gate height.
