Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Citroën C5 hatchback?

Generally, the C5 doesn't have a good reputation for reliability.

Up to 50% of its problems centre on the electrics, and things have a habit of failing suddenly. The dashboard, stereo and air-con are regular concerns, but make sure all controls and switches work.
