Not for me

Looks, Price, Equipment level, Storage

Does not get you from A to B

Why did we choose to buy a Citroen? Unfortunately, I chose to ignore the advice of a collegue at work -"DON'T BUY A CITROEN". After doing the usual rounds of the car showrooms and glossy mags and studying every detail in What Car we ended up at the citroen garage. It was one of the regular...

After owning my little Citroen C3 for just over 6 years, the time has come to accept that this relationship has run its course and move on to better things. So I have finally part-exchanged my C3 and, hopefully, bid farewell to endless visits to the garage and constant repair bills! Like most...

Long distance ride comfort

Not so hot on corners, flimsy interior build

I always approach the rental desk of my chosen holiday car hire company with a degree of disinterest bordering on resignation. After all, one of those brand-spanking new cars outside is never going to be turned over to me is it? I’ll probably get the two-year-old Anonymous-mobile that I’ve driven...

When my parents got me my first car as a surprise a year ago, I was a little bit skeptical about the Citroen make as I had learnt in a Toyota Yaris and driven a Renault before and found them easy drives. My parents told me it would probably not run too well as it was an 04 plate and would most...

My wife and I purchased a second hand, 52 plate, Citreon C3 Exclusive 2 years ago, and have had nothing but problems with it since its arrival. Firstly the car was damaged in the showroom, and had to be repaired - this was done eventually. Then the electrical faults started Any time a passenger...

This is a good car. I've had mine since March this year. The boot is big enough to take a double buggy and a weeks worth of shopping. If you have young kiddies the seperate buttons on the dashboard for the central locking and child lock mean that if someone opens the door from outside and then...

The C3 has to be the least reliable car I've owned since I started buying cars in 1971. The Engine Warning Light comes on, the car usually goes into "limp home mode" and is downwrite dangerous to drive with as close to zero power as you can imagain. Sometimes the light comes on but drives...

“See?”

published 23/01/2005

.....What speedbump? I didn't feel any speedbump.....

Interior looks cheap upon closer inspection

Obviously I'm too young to have driven or really been one with this car, but prior to the parents purchasing a car such as this, I strongly objected the decision to buy the C3 under the notion that it was too ugly and too round. As a teenager, and like all others, I try to be conscious of the way...

“C3nsible cars...”

Compact

Build quality not 100%

I wanted a nice reliable new car. With the C3 safety features and 60k mile warranty you certainly can't go wrong there, with 4 airbags as standard and the Euro Ncap 4star rating, this I thought would be an ideal family car. I have the base LX 1.4 model, so it doesn't come with ABS or the other...

I passed my driving test in November and bought my new Citroen C3 in December '05. After 3 months of driving it, I absolutely still love it ! I chose artic silver coloured one and got £1000 cash back as part of the Happy Deals that were then available. I chose the C3 as, for a smaller car it...

Low price, Styling

Build quality

First of all, if you're looking for a review of the Citroen C3 before buying one, well done! I only wish I'd done the same before handing over over £8,000 of my hard-earned cash. My model was bought in August 2006 from Sportif Citroen in Aylesbury. Driving off the forecourt, everything seemed to...

“So many problems”

published 31/10/2005

Good value for money

Shoddy build quality

I can't fault the dealer with the buying and ordering of this car, they were professional, polite and no hassle. Now to the car itself. I test drove it, and loved it, the slightly higher positioning is nice, but not too imposing to be a big MPV. I collected it (brand new) and it was back with the...

Looks good and is easy to drive.

questionable rear legroom.

My search for my first car was an interesting journey through a variety of rubbish rovers and bottom of the range fiestas which ended in me and my dad finding a pearl of a car in my Citroen C3 1.1i petrol which had less than 6000 miles on the clock and was only £5500. After test driving fords and...
