Previous carCitroen C5

Summary:

Not as good as an old Nissan

Faults:

Anti pollution fault, this has happened twice, and in both those cases I bought cheap gasoline from the same gas company.. later decided to stop shopping from them, since than I haven't seen this light.

The brakes touched the wheels, do to oxidisation from two different metals, it was almost impossible to take the cylinder away; I put a little strip of tape between them, and that problem was solved.

The heater module is burning due to bad wiring. The connection was burned to pieces, and the heater only worked in 5. I took it apart, and found out the resistance in the module; it was fine but 2 legs, which the connection goes in were missing (burned away). I fixed it by using one other (extra one) and it worked for half a year, now it is broken again, and I´m going to the dealership and going to have a talk with them, because the fumes are really dangerous!!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
