2005 Citroen C4 Coupe 1.4 from UK and Ireland
I purchased a C4, after continuing problems with a Xsara Forte.
Within a very short time there was an error message displaying "Speed Control Failure".
Once the deaker was notified, all they could say is there is an update, which we will do, and it will be corrected. Since that the error has occured countless times, to which the dealer has no idea where the fault lies, They have spoken to Citroen (allegedly) and apparently the car is not recording faults. The new Citroen C4 Alive with Technology, but dead on the road.
Had 3 near misses where the engine stalled once at 70mph driving on motorway nearly missing a truck, once nearly hitting an Audi A4.
Then at 70mph the car stalled. I was escorted to safety by the RAC and the Highways Agency.
The car collapsed at 50mph, nearly hitting the following car, OOPS.
After that, the dealer has no idea on what it is. After 70 miles testing they gave the keys back saying no idea. Grrrrrrrr, I drove car 5 miles and same fault. I'm either driving a lemon that no one can diagnose, or I'm losing my mind. The only thing is that all the faults have been recorded on camera.
Moral of the story is never buy a Citroen
Has anyone else had a similar problem?
Car is a lemon, and Citroen are useless.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

As far as not to buy a citroen again it sounds a bit extreme. It's one of these things that no matter what the manufacturer of car, there will always be the odd 'pig in a poke'. Unfortunately it sounds as if you've possibly bought one which is no laughing matter as it's at a cost to yourself. I've got nothing but good things to say about my C4. Hope you get things sorted out.
