2004 Citroen C2 LX 1.4 HDI turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Excellent cheap motoring
A noise that sounds like a squeaky groan when the engine moves - doesn't seem to be causing any problems though.
I bought this as a cheap as chips runabout until I can afford something newer and more luxurious, but it's such a good little car I'd be a fool to get rid of it. The mileage the car has racked up with the previous owner is quite amazing for a little car like this. The engine runs as sweet as; no smoke, no rattles, no oil usage.
The only real problem is with the quality of finish of the plastics and paint work. Citroen have saved money by painting with a very thin layer of paint, and the plastics on the interior are a bit scratchy and cheap, but then all these things mean the car is cheap to buy and is light too.
The car is averaging 55 mpg. I do very short journeys through the week, and then one decent motorway run most weekends, so 55 mpg average is quite impressive.
Everything still works on the car, no faults at all. Really can't complain about this car other than the boot is tiny, but that was a sacrifice worth making for such cheap motoring.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
