What used Citroën C5 hatchback will I get for my budget?
How much does it cost to run a Citroën C5 hatchback?
The C5 loses value rapidly from new, making it an expensive buy at only a few months old but 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.
