Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Citroën C3 hatchback?
If you decide to ignore our advice and go for a Sensodrive car anyway, this semi-automatic gearbox can give up the ghost completely. You have been warned.
There have also been reports of the injector pump failing on the 1.6 16v HDi turbodiesel of earlier cars. Citroen has improved the design, which sorts the problem, and revised parts will have been fitted to most cars under the company's three-year, 60,000-mile warranty, but it's worth asking the question when viewing one.
