Satisfactory with low costs
Nothing gone wrong so far.
At the the time I decided to buy a C3 form Citroen, I was very afraid of having mechanical and electrical troubles. The comments on this car was seriously bad. So far she really satisfied my expectations from a small car. The trunk is one of the greatest in her class and the cabin is spacious. The 1.4 8v HDi (70 hp) engine is quiet and really thrifty. It is very easy to take more than 1100 kilometers with one tank (44 lt) on medium speed. But over 100 km/h, tire noises fill into the cabin and side winds badly affects the stability.
The consumption-performance comparison is bad, I recommend 1.4 16v or 1.6 16v HDi (90hp) engines. You can get the similar consumption values with higher performance points.
Braking is satisfactory, but I recommend air cooling disks on 90 hp models.
Maintenance costs are really low and service quality is satisfactory in Turkey. But I am angry with my self of not choosing 90 hp HDi version for a few extra money.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
