General Comments:

One of the great Citroen's

Looks great, like nothing else

It is a special feeling driving it

Great for corners, when you get used to it

Great car for trips into the country

Great for off road

The police won't stop you when you succeed in breaking the speed limit (they just laugh)

It has got simple mechanics

It is a Citroen

It is a 2cv.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
