2005 Citroen C4 Exclusive 2.0 Hdi turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Nasty poor quality junk. Utter garbage
Various rattles and squeaks.
Parking sensors on continuously.
Turbo sensor failure.
Front electric window motor failure.
Glove box lid fell off.
Rear view mirror droops in warm weather.
Folding exterior mirror motor failure.
Carpet peeling away from side of front footwell.
Sticking door handles.
N/S rear door wouldn't open.
Sever juddering under 2,500rpm.
I cannot believe just how dreadful this car has been.
In all my years of driving, and that includes many Citroens, I've never owned a car that's been so unreliable. An absolute and total utter nightmare from day one.
It's currently in the main dealer... yet again... and has been for 12 days, whilst they try to find the severe engine juddering at under 2,500rpm. They seem at a total loss as to what's wrong with it, and leave me with no transport as all the courtesy cars are permanently booked. Absolute and total shambles, and wouldn't recommend one to my worst enemy. 0/10.
Trading Standards and a solicitor beckon if this isn't sorted very soon, and when it is, the car will be going the day I get it back.
I'll never buy a Citroen again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Update. Finally dragged this spluttering monster out of the dealership in my sheer frustration, thinking I'd be able to take it to another dealer for them to have a go at fixing it instead.
WRONG! Apparently Citroen insist that if a garage has already started warranty work, they have to complete it, so I've very reluctantly taken it back to them in an even worse state than when I collected it yesterday.
I've sarcastically told them not to ring me until it's fixed, which they wouldn't have done anyway, as keeping the customer (sorry, pain in the backside) is not an option that they would even consider.
As for a replacement to use in the meantime, it seems I'm on my own. Both Citroen UK and the dealer are refusing to hire me a car.
I'm thoroughly disgusted with the shoddy treatment I've received.
All nicey nice to you when you're handing over your hard earned, but heaven help any of you others if a major fault develops on your much loved C4's.
I appreciate that the majority of you seem happy with your purchases. P'raps i've just been unlucky....very!
