2003 Citroen C5 SX 2.0 from Australia and New Zealand
Electric mirrors ceased to work the day after I purchased it.
Rear hatch window no longer opens.
Fuel gauge reads incorrectly.
Gear shift broke.
Thermostat gave up on a 40 degree day.
Worst car I have ever owned. I made a big mistake buying it, it is a very comfortable car, but very unreliable and slow.
Off the line acceleration is like watching paint dry, and it has a worrying tendency to hesitate when overtaking and putting your foot down. Many near misses on intersections have resulted.
I never feel confident that it arrive at my destination, and will be getting shot of this lemon very soon; that's if I can find another fool to buy a C5.
My advice is to steer clear of Citroens.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

All of the above really doesn't sound that bad. Any car you purchase is going to have money spent on it, that's a fact of life. If that's all that I had go wrong with my car, I would think I had a great car.
