2003 Citroen C3 Desire 1.4 from UK and Ireland
Good looking, roomy, economical, cheap materials used, too many faults need addressing
Vinyl trim on doors split, seals on headlights failed, screen washers failed, reverse gear very difficult to get, headlights failed. Upholstery began to wear within 1 week of purchase. Window electrics will open the windows, but not close them.
The car is spacious, and very useful as a run around. It takes a lot of items in the spacious boot, and is great when the back seats are folded down for holding a great deal of stuff.
The upholstery is terrible, it began to "pill" within days of purchase as a brand new car. It is virtually unclean-able, showing marks where any cleaning has been attempted.
The vinyl trim split around the drivers window, and had to be replaced. It has now split again.
The windscreen washers have failed, causing yet another expensive trip to the dealers.
The headlights failed, and after Citroen repaired them, the seals failed.
Reverse gear is terribly difficult to get, and can sometimes take up to 5 minutes or more of attempts.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
