2005 Citroen C2 VTR 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Despite the problems I really like the car, dealership service dept has been exceptional
Sensodrive extremely jerky
Sometimes can't decided what gear it should be in especially on hills
Noise from brakes when reversing
Seat covers poorly fitted
Creaking drivers seat
Loose and marked trim.
Had GT model before extremely pleased with it (except for noisy brakes in reverse!) bought VTR for the higher spec and sensodrive.
VTR been back to dealership 4 times with faults, Sensodrive better now, but sometimes still hesitant about what gear to be in, not reassuring when pulling out onto busy round-a-bout!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I can't find any faults with mine, if it is hesitating just use the paddles.

Cheap little c2 cars are such poor quality.

The french's attempt to recreate german excellence, can't be good.

I have recently purchased an 05 C2 VTR in Australia and so far have had no problems. As far as I can see it's a great little performer and seems solidly built.
Have a mechanic look at it before purchase if its used or get it from the dealer. Don't worry about the scaremongering and use the paddles!
