Summary:

Citroën shouldn't have been selling a car with such a history of faults with the roof

Faults:

Roof leaks. One roof replaced within warranty.

Second roof required £3000 work on it.

AC not working.

General Comments:

I loved the car. It was fun whilst it worked, but then the roof leaked. Then the roof & boot wouldn't open.

This was the second roof.

Summary:

Makes me feel like a proud parent!

Faults:

Nothing.

General Comments:

I know I've only had my Pluriel for 5 days, but so far she is a dream. Handles beautifully, looks fantastic, gets me where I want to go in style.

What do you mean, the weather stops you taking the top down? We flick the switch every time we go out! If rain comes you flick the switch again - no problem!

The kids particularly like how the windows disappear completely when you put them all down...

I haven't quite worked out how to operate it, but I also love the display, which you can switch between mpg, mileage, and trip mileage. Maybe I'd love any new, digital-age car, but you've got to admit the Pluriel is special.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
