Comfortable, powerful and quiet


A small noise behind the fixed wheel when running on poor roads.

The car had also a small accident and the front bumper was replaced. The service didn't tune the headlights well, but fixed it at my request.

General Comments:

Very comfortable and nice to drive; it has enough power without being too sporty. I hope it will be acceptably reliable (knowing that Citroen has a certain reputation for unreliability). So far it seems well built and everything works OK. The Hydractive H3+ suspension is a joy on both good and poor roads.

I bought it new in 2009 (it was a 2008 model) with a lot of extras and a good discount.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
