General Comments:

Bought my Citroen C5 SX 2001 in June 2005. So far, after ca 70000 kilometres it has only been a pleasure to own and drive. I have had five cars before this one, three Volvo and two Mitsubishi. The Citroen is the best to drive (so far). If someone had said to me five years ago that I would buy a French car and a Citroen, I would have shaken my head. When I took a test ride in June, I just laughed: Wow, was I driving a van? A cloud? A living room? After the test drive, I did not look for any further car.

I have read that people have had problems with the electronics, no such problems so far. I have also read that many think that this is a really ugly car... I do not understand them. It is one of the most beautiful, stubborn, modern, masculine designs ever.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Correcting mistake: So far I have been driving 7000 km... not 70000 km. Sorry about that!
