2004 Citroen C2 VTR 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Alarm sets itself off without warning after locking.
Foot brake loose & sticks if pressed too hard.
Remote locking failed.
Rear brakes scrape.
No power from engine when slowing down and setting off again quickly.
Gearbox failed completely - warning light on.
Traction control failed.
Trip computer stuck.
Fuel tank lights failed.
Unknown beeping noises when setting off - dealer unable to fix.
Cabin rattles at any speed.
Unable to do a hill start due to gearbox overriding manual control and trying to set off in 3rd.
No 1st gear even in manual mode automatic takes over and changes to 2nd whether you want it to or not.
Bonnet open warning light where clock is even though it is shut - which means alarm does not work.
Gearbox numbers stuck on 0 - no idea what gear in.
All brakes had to be replaced & front suspension needed changing.
Dealer unhelpful - car has been back several times and never had all the faults fixed, still waiting for parts.
At times the car has been a death trap to drive and it should never have been returned to me until it was fixed.
Other than these problems car OK!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Don't out of service - Snow mode lights up, car won't start!
Dealership had car for 5 days and charged £200+ on diagnostic checks - still not fixed...
