I've now had the 1.6HDi 110 5dr for over 2½ years. It sailed through its MOT without a comment at a fraction under 60,000 miles.
There's been a couple of minor issues which were fixed under warranty during a service (Climate control fault and broken turbo heat shield), other it's been wear and tear - tyres, disc brake pads, wiper blades, &c. The engine pulls like a train and the comfort is a delight. I've seem one fault appear and that was because a bottle of champagne popped open and sprayed the dash! It was fine after putting the heating on full bast to dry it out.
We've been John o'Groats, Belgium, France, Spain and up to Andorra in the Pyrénées without a blemish. Fuel consumption is amazing, with motorway cruising hitting 60mph.
I added the iPod/USB box which requires dealer activation (free during a service) but gives excellent sound through the standard radio.
We also have a 57 Foucus, and all I say is that it's the Focus with it's messy analogue/digital dash, incredibly small and uncomfortatble seats, general lack of style and refinement and worse fuel consumption (same engine as the Citroën!) which sits on the drive. (It could become a low-mileage trade-in for my next C4!)
I can't fault the C4. A terrific car.
I have just test-driven this car and it seems marvellous. I liked the automatic gearbox with paddle shift.
It has taken me a couple years to get this car, as my good wife loves the Kia Picanto automatic which has been great - I recommend it to any lady drivers, but I'm looking for bit a bit of oomph. The citroen has this oomph - it's very fast for a diesel automatic, and looks very good too.
I hope it is as reliable as the Kia or my head is on the block - I'm quite sure it will be. I had half an hour's test-drive and was very impressed with the speed, and all the gadgets. I have now ordered this car and will update you later - I hope I have done the right thing, if not a divorce is in the offing after 41 years!
I'm sure it will be better than our first car, a Morris 1000 soft-top with leaks, which cost £50 at auction in Glasgow. I had it for two years. In my twilight years, I'm now much better financially, and I am really looking forward to driving my new French car, and hope it out-lasts my Morris 1000 with leaks.
Over the years I have owned many cars, including Citroens, and hope this one is as good as the others. Watch this space!
I have had a C4 2.0 diesel Exclusive for about six months now, in which time I have, under warranty, had 2 new turbochargers, 1 replacement multi Cd changer, a leak fixed from the air conditioning into the drivers footwell, false tyre pressure readings on the digital display,1 door handle nearly falling off,a heating elemnt in the rear screen fail, and a complete set of replacment discs and callipers fitted, and several other minor faults. Not a good track record. The car is,when it is not in the garage, very comfortable and quick and this is the first diesel engined car I have ever owned and I am very impressed with the acceleration. It is a pity that so much of the cars life has been spent in the workshop. The dealer has been fantastic and the service 100% But the car, well, I can't wait to get rid of it. Shame as it is very innotative and stylish.
I picked up this car in UK,in the first glance,i though it wouldnt come up with my expectation,when i got on the high way(As i am crazy at speed and car),i tested the car,that was fantastic,high flexibility in terms of controling the speed,taking over and etc, The car looks nice,good quality,spacious,comfortable seats,nice dashboard,Good air condition(Automatic),you can speed up very fast.I love this car,i planed to buy this car next year.by the way very economical in price.

My late 2010 1.6 CRDI has covered 43,000 miles in just over 18 months. The good. So far the car seems totally reliable. The interior still looks…
