My best car ever


Driver's window getting stuck. That's it!!

General Comments:

If buying this car, try and get it with leather seats.

Running costs are really good compared to some other cars e.g the Volkswagen Passat.

I've bought Citroens since the early 90s; very good cars, never had problems, I'm not exaggerating!

I recently changed for a BMW 5 Series, but that's because it's a company car, but I still think the Citroen C5 is better by far for comfort and running costs.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
