2005 Citroen C3 Exclusive 1.6i 16v from UK and Ireland


Brilliant Car I am very happy with my great choice


Some times my indicator stalk won't click in when the steering wheel is at a certain angle.

Needed a New Bumper skirt as it was catching on some roads and it came off.

General Comments:

I have owned the car for just over 8 months from brand new.

As I can't drive manual cars due to me not being able to use the peddls I picked the Sensodrive as it is the closest thing to a manual.

I have been very happy with the car. I had it in Rainforest Green which they no longer do by luck I had the last one.

The 1.6i 16v is very responsive. Its Brilliant for over taking. It is very good on Fuel.

The Gear Box can tend do take a while to engage a gear when pulling away at junctions.

There are some good equipment on the Exclusive which are Auto Wipers, Auto Lights, Cruise Control, Anti Theft Alarm, Child Mirror, Picnic tables and Alloy Wheels.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Since my review the car is still going well. I did have to have a new handbreak lever and cable adjustment. Its really good on fuel now. I had 150 miles on a quarter of a tank. I have had 55mpg out of it at times.

So if you want an Auto which is good on fuel this is a must.

Just over 2 years later, and the car is still going well.

Fuel consumption is great; even on short runs now.

Hi - I'm just about to slate the Sensodrive in a review but would be interested to hear how you're finding it?

Not as specified


The car was advertised and confirmed by citroen as having disc brakes all round only to be supplied with drum rear brakes. Citroen's attitude was tough even though they confirmed the spec. They can alter it at will, without informing anyone.

Don't BUY a Citroen until you actually see the vehicle you want and CHECK THE SPEC>

General Comments:

A very pleasant car to look at.

This car has a great interior and has many smart features.

However my car cannot handle speed bumps without breaking.

I feel I have wasted a lot of my hard earned cash.
