2006 Citroen C3 Furio HDI 1.4 turbo diesel from South Africa
Great, cheap to buy, fuel efficient car
Clutch needed replacing when I bought the car.
Diesel leak from fuel sender.
Seal on the gearbox failed.
Rear wiper washer dripping inside the car.
Shocks needed replacing all round.
The car developed a knocking noise, which turned out to be either the front shock mounts and drop links. Both were replaced.
Battery failed this year.
Although the list of repairs done to the car is quite long, none of the repairs have been difficult or expensive. In fact I have been quite impressed with the cost of Citroen parts and also the fact that I have never needed to wait for parts.
The car itself is pleasant to drive and is pretty quiet for a small diesel. Fuel economy is excellent; I get about 5.3 litres per 100km and generally get around 750km on a full tank. The car has all the features you could want, bar not having cruise control or an arm rest.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
