The front disks have been replaced 3 times in 40,000 miles.
The rear quarterlight seals leaked from new, and took 4 visits to finally be replaced (more dealer fault than anything).
Knocking noise from the driveshaft/CV joints (?) from new when cornering. The dealer REFUSED to put it right, saying it wasn`t bad enough to replace under warranty.
Drivers seat mechanism/runners needed to be replaced.
Passenger seat won`t always slide forward properly to let people into the back of the car, it has to be `twanged` by using the seat adjustments.
The paintwork is BLOODY AWFUL (patches all over the vehicle haven`t been laquered when it was being made). The dealer also refused to sort this out.
Generally reliable but some minor faults. Very nice car to drive.
The knocking from the driveshaft is as annoying as hell, and to be told it won`t be fixed under warranty is an insult (I had the 3 year extended warranty).
My judgement of the manufacturer may have been different if it wasn`t for problems with an AX model I also bought new and had 6 months of hell trying to get it roadworthy. Citroen UK didn`t want to know, despite the car being back in the garage 18 times in the first MONTH, and was faulty from new in more than one area (pulled left / paintwork / hatchback window shattered after 1 week causing other damage).
We need lemon laws desperately in the UK.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
