2003 Citroen C3


Nothing but problems, so regret not getting a Japanese car!


We bought our C3 here in Greece. Within first 6 months we visited the garage 4 times, with them saying they couldn't find anything wrong. In the end it just wouldn't start. They came and changed the fuel pump.

A few months later it stalled on me, would start again only to stall again and again. Again told to use 'better petrol'. The computer showed nothing.

Have lost all trust in the car as I never know when it will stall on me, usually in the middle of town.

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

I think that you must be very unlucky with your car. I have a C3 1.4 from 2003 and I am very pleased! My car has an excellent engine, a very good grip, and it is very easy in town. I love this car.

Please read my review, where I describe in 1200 words a million things that went wrong with my car, in Athens, Greece (mine is a 2003 C3, 1600cc, with a sunroof).

Now its the millionth time I'm visiting the dealer... and another 500 euros going down the drain...

Maybe we should find a way to get back at Citroen for all this trouble.

I had a Citroen C3, and I thought it was a terrible car. Well, what do we expect from a French car? I bought a Yaris instead, and never a day's trouble.
