Living with it

4 out of 5

Have you had any problems with the car?
I bought this car when it was less than 1.5 years old and has run just 10.5 K miles. Citroen hasnt got the electricals correct. I have so far changed all the bulbs since buying at least 2 times. Once my battery drained completly as there was some un-known discharge from it. Left with the dealer for investigation but they did not find any anamoly. Touch wood after that I have not had any problem with battery draining so far. I observed that the tyres wear out faster on this vehicle - in comparison with my earlier 3 vehicles. I had to change 3 tyres even before completing 20K miles run and I dont run it off road.; On exclusive model, I read that instrument panel light change option is available by default but not in my model; No auxillary connection to the audio system;.

What's most practical about your car?
Space, Driver View, Steering wheel design with static central console. Clean area around Driver seat allowing free movement between driver and front passenger; Good leg room for rear seats; DC socket at the rear near boot; Re-chargeable torch in the boot; Puncture repair kit;(no spare wheel);.
