    My car

    This has been our family vehicle and has been used everyday from long trips to just around town. What attracted us to buy it was its equipment level - with its sat nav and the leather seats, it's got everything you want it a car.

    The 2.2 diesel engine is a joy with loads of power and a good mpg return. The auto/triptronic gearbox is great when you need extra power for overtaking on motorways. On the build qualty overall - it's good but we have had problems with the heated seats, the air-con (sometimes it works!) and the front supension (on the legs I noticed they were damp, so I took it to a Citroen dealer and was told this was normal!) Also the heater takes ages to warm up (reminds me of my VW beetle days!)

    Overall it is a great vehicle but is let down by things that go wrong. It's only done 24,000 miles! I have a Volvo 740 est, which has done 115,000 miles - and the heated seats still work!
