Electric motor in Sunroof seized.
Panel lights on heater console only started working after owning the car for 2years.
ABS became intermittent. Finally stopped working due to faulty sensor on one of front wheels.
Mysterious engine surging and idle cut-out. Originally put down to faulty MAP sensor by dealer and replaced (twice). Now it is believed to be a faulty ACC valve (more likely).
Engine management warning light on dashboard permanently alight. This could be due to the ACC valve problem - however, the dealers were unsure if this was indeed causing the warning signal.
Faulty lambda sensor caused engine to run extremely rich - eventually replaced.
Mysterious central locking fault causes car to rapidly (and repeatedly) lock and unlock for no apparent reason - whether it be just sitting unattended or in the middle of driving down the road.
Rear passenger door lock failed. Child lock permanently engaged and 'lockability' of door seems to have random success. Must lock manually as central locking on that door doesn't always work.
Cable for rear passenger side window winder snapped. Unable to operate (window now slides down on its own), considering sealing shut.
All four door stays (things that keep doors open), have failed. Doors can't be left open as they always swing shut.
Drivers sun visor 'lock' broken. Now permanently hanging down.
One bar of rear window de-mister has stopped working.
For the first two years owing the car has been a pleasure. It has been a good handler with sufficient enough 'poke' to keep a driver interested. The interior is comfortable and has stood up to wear and tear reasonably well.
However, after a period of time the reliabilty has degraded appallingly. Strange faults and parts breakages have become a frequent and irritating regularity. I have now spent more in keeping the car on the road than I did in the initial purchase. In it's current state it is probably worth very little, so it is no good as a trade in for another car. I am stuck between spending more money to keep it on the roads or to cut my losses and somehow find the money to buy something better AND dispose of my Citroen.
