2003 Citroen C3 from Greece


Nothing but problems, so regret not getting a Japanese car!


We bought our C3 here in Greece. Within first 6 months we visited the garage 4 times, with them saying they couldn't find anything wrong. In the end it just wouldn't start. They came and changed the fuel pump.

A few months later it stalled on me, would start again only to stall again and again. Again told to use 'better petrol'. The computer showed nothing.

Have lost all trust in the car as I never know when it will stall on me, usually in the middle of town.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I think that you must be very unlucky with your car. I have a C3 1.4 from 2003 and I am very pleased! My car has an excellent engine, a very good grip, and it is very easy in town. I love this car.

Please read my review, where I describe in 1200 words a million things that went wrong with my car, in Athens, Greece (mine is a 2003 C3, 1600cc, with a sunroof).

Now its the millionth time I'm visiting the dealer... and another 500 euros going down the drain...

Maybe we should find a way to get back at Citroen for all this trouble.

I had a Citroen C3, and I thought it was a terrible car. Well, what do we expect from a French car? I bought a Yaris instead, and never a day's trouble.

2003 Citroen C3 sensor drive 1.6 petrol from Singapore


Is a regret to own this c3 sensor drive


It come with bad fitting when I first received the car, the roof lining was not fit in properly and the interior desk board was not properly fitted.

A lot of plastic sound comes all over the interior when it on the road.

The car gave a lot of jerks when you go on low gear.

The car got no power on it first gear although it is a 1.6 litter car.

The engine of this car rattle violently on the first gear if you accelerate too fast as if the engine going to stall at you. Ask about the engine issue, the service agent could not solve your problem, but just tell you to live with it. The interior sound is getting noisy as the after you hit 15000km.

General Comments:

The general exterior look cute and nice

The performance was way too disappointed for a 1.6 car like this.

Interior is cheap and noisy.

There is little room for those who got a longer legs.

2003 Citroen C3 Exclusive 1.4HDi 92hp from UK and Ireland


Reliable, fun, economical, roomy, quick and comfortable


Offside window switch ceased to function around 24,000 miles.

General Comments:

I have really enjoyed my C3 from the moment I took delivery.

The engine is very willing, the handling is very positive with hardly any body roll (French car - Wow!), the braking system is simply superb, the cd/radio and speakers are top flight, and the car itself is quiet (inside, at any rate!)

There can be some road noise over certain surfaces, but an adjustment to the radio volume takes care of it!

It is also larger than it looks, the height tends to make it look narrower, and the boot is deceptive, being deep rather than long. Take out the moduboard unless you use it as it wastes a lot of useful space.

Cabin interior is light and airy, but pale colours can stain and mark, and some of the trim seems flimsy...doesn't break, though.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Looks good, but quality is certainly an issue


1.Faulty fuel indicator- Agent could get it fix.

2. The rubber seal around the windors are not firm.

3.All sort of noise started to be coming from outside and inside of the car after 15000KM.

4. Battery went flat after 1 month upon receiving delivery of the car.

5. Plastics parts in the car have sharp edges. The Plastic finish and quality is something the Manufacturer should be looking into.

6. Noise of gear shift happens after 10000KM and scares me off.

7.Car jerks too much during gear shifts.

8.Not much of leg room as described in the car specification/review.

General Comments:

The car attracts my friends to ask about it.
