    My car

    E-Hdi Airdream style 1.6 with Xenon upgrade, rubbing strips and GardX. A few issues early on with gear engagement. At 35 months two injectors failed. Alloys corroded badly, showing every encounter with the tyre balancer. These issues were covered under warranty, but the car was out of action for the best part of a month Not great on tyre wear. Windscreen wipers don't clear the driver's side, passenger gets a great view Blind-spot indicators don't pick up motorbikes and give false positives in the wet. Transmission issues are on-going. Gearbox can get confused quite easily - don't ask for torque and subsequently lift, you'll end up coasting in neutral while the transmission sorts its next move out. Intermittent problems between reverse and first gear continue. Firm ride and fair handling. It is what it is. Sporty it is not. Bluetooth connectivity is a problem and the best music solution is USB stick. Passenger complains about lack of second cup-holder (only available if you can keep the central console storage free of 12V accessories and if air-con is on, your coffee is going to cool PDQ). Rubbing strips are prone to collect mould/moss. Fine if you can garage the vehicle. Mediocre Dealer experience leaves this purchase with a pretty sour taste for Citroen.

    My car

    Do not believe any of the whatcar review, i have owned 3 DS4'S, THE 2.0HDI dsport 160BHP, 1.6 dstyle hdi115 and dstyle E-HDI 1.6. and although the dsport (on the 19inch low profiles) ride is harsh over potholes the ride on the 18inch rims is smooth and silky, never had a problem in 3 years, the stop/start system is good, economy is excellent, engine is sublime even build quality is very good and feels solid, the only thing that lets it down is the small legroom in the rear due to shape of back doors and coupe style but you know this when you buy one...the shape draws you in and looks well on the road, lots of kit and all quality...brilliant motor all round.

    My car

    Where to start with this car, had it for 14 months now and done 22,000 miles in it and although nothing mechanically up with it I absolutely hate it. Cant wait for the lease to be up next year. The ride quality is appalling on UK roads it crashes and is noisy if you drive over bumps you have to wrestle with the steering wheel to keep it in line. Long journeys in it are very tiresome as you constantly have to manoeuvre the steering wheel to keep it in check and I end up with arm ache after long journeys. To be fair driving the car abroad which I do from time to time the ride does improve on smooth French motorways. The seats are not really supportive either and the back massager is pretty lousy. Standard equipment in the car to be fair is pretty good however no DAB radio at the time of purchasing was available which was rather odd. The last couple of months as the ride is so crashy there are now a number of creaks and rattles within the cabin. Boot space is quite good and the engine itself is quite well powered however the official 55mpg is way out of line averaged 45 at best and I don't hammer it. Would I recommend this car to anyone in a word no unless you like the ride quality of a car owned by Fred Flintstone.

    My car

    Owning a Skoda Yeti which was due for a change was going to be a hard act to follow Don’t believe the road test on this car it is comfortable on 18 inch wheels better than a Countryman on 16 inch. Loads of power for so little revs and on the motor way 70mph is only 2000rpm.It has a bigger boot than a Focus. On a recent 25 mile A road journey I managed 60mpg. If you want a practical car that is individual and has a bit of style this is the one for you.
