What used Citroën C5 estate will I get for my budget?

How much does it cost to run a Citroën C5 estate?

The C5 loses value rapidly from new, making the C5 potentially a bargain by its second or third birthday. However, it has the potential to put a big dent in your bank balance as it gets older.

Reliability is poor and the C5 also needs a suspension overhaul after five years. Main-dealer prices for servicing are competitive, but it's doubtful whether switching to a back-street garage to save money would be as wise as if you owned a Ford or Vauxhall - spares aren't dear, but the complex electrics and suspension could jack up repair costs.
