During last winter the monitor on the middle of the dashboard acted up twice. On the first time it started blinking and showed text "Economy mode active". When I stopped the car and restarted the engine it was OK. On the second time light on the monitor didn't switch off when I switched off the engine and removed the key. When I restarted the engine and switched it off again the monitor switched off too.
I have a Pack Automatique in my car. The passenger side mirror moves to help reverse the car. During last winter it didn't always move back to driving position.
Power windows didn't always work properly during winter time. When I tried to close them they tend to stop and get a bit down, like there would have been something on their way.
AL4 automatic transmission is not as soft as in some American cars.
C5 is a nice car, but doesn't like winter.
C5 is a nice car. It's very comfortable and spacious. It has luxurious interior. It's suspension works like a dream. I really enjoy traveling with it. Average fuel consumption is 6,5 liters / 100 km. I only hope it would have better automatic transmission with more than 4 gears and it would tolerate Finnish winter better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
