    My car

    Any ideas as to what what I can do, if anything legally regarding my car still leaking, which it has done since I purchased it (cash)in Jan 2007I've had numerous repairs to the roof but to no avail. A leak has recently sprung in the boot. One repair to that two weeks ago has not stopped it. My car is not and never has been, fit for the purpose!!!!

    My car

    Ive had my pluriel for nearly 3 years and im about to get a different car under my lease - THANK GOD - my pluriel is extremely slow especially uphill and i can just about manage 60 with foot flat on the floor, ive had wheel bearings go, seals go so that fumes were being pumped straight into the cabin (very nice for my new baby to breathe in) and the sits are so fiddly so that adjusting them means sometime they fly up and smack you int he back of the head.

    The car is noisy on start up and very slow to demist and warm up in the winter, im also convinced the clutch is now on the way out too - im just praying it makes thelast 2 months of my lease and then its the lease companies problem when i gleefully hand it back to get my shiny new Honda CRV!!!!

    I HATE THIS CAR - ITS A PILE OF POOH - JUST DONT GO THERE - ITS OK FOR AN 18 YEAR OLD HAIRDRESSER - BUT OTHERWISE DONT GO THERE !!!!

    My car

    I have owned this car from new. It has not given us any trouble whatsoever.

    It is something different and is great fun, even though getting up to a decent speed is not all that clever.

    It is, however, very practicable, with the conversion to a small pick-up and it is surprising what you can transport when it is converted into this mode.

    It is a 21st-century take on the old 2CV.

    My car

    Buying this car was the worst mistake of my life so far. I've had nothing but problems from day one with the leaking roof, engine and gearbox. The garage had the car for ten weeks out of the 14 I had it. When the roof leaks, it stains the seats, and beware because I was told the roof was not included in the warranty.

    I will never buy a Citroen again, this has put me off for life.
