Good quality for the price


The electric fan fell down 2 times due to electrical faults.

The rear suspension blocked due to a failure in the hydro-pneumatic system.

The dashboard lights went down with a high cost of replacement.

The brake pads don't last more than 25000 km.

General Comments:

Very good quality. I had min for 5 years and will keep it for at least 2 more.

Great ride on highways.

Beautiful look, Citroen odd style.

Great interior space, very comfortable.

A little bit underpowered (2.0 petrol engine). Good top speed, but needs a little bit more reaction.

The dashboard is poor.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
