Follow up to an earlier review; car has now gone back to the leasing company after 3 years and just over 99,000 miles. What went wrong? One blown daytime running light bulb and a fractured suspension pipe at 90,000 miles (apparently very rare). What was good? Incredible long distance car, superbly comfortable, very quiet, extremely stable in cross winds and loads of room making it capable of taking 5 adults and luggage without any discomfort. I specced it up so it was the Exclusive with the gas suspension, Xenon lights that turn with you, leather, massage seats, satnav, jukebox, telephone and 19 inch wheels. The wheels look great, don't disturb the ride and improve the roadholding. Beware the tyres are £300 each! Stick with 17 inch if you're buying privately. Nothing broke or let me down apart from the pipe which meant I had to drive slowly for a while until I got to a garage. It is not a sports car but can corner surprisingly quickly and securely and certainly quicker than a BMW 3 series that I borrowed where the BMW hopped and skipped over mid corner bumps that the Citroen ignored. Not the fastest car in the world either but will cruise all day at high speed without effort. Everyone who rode in it or drove it loved it. This is a wonderful modern interpretation of old school Citroen: soft, quiet and comfortable. Recommended if you want a large, comfortable, reliable, well equipped and stylish car. Look elsewhere if you're after a 'sporting' ride and a 'badge'.
