Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used Citroën C5 saloon?
Generally, Citroen doesn't have the best reputation for reliability, but the C5 has impressed its owners. Complaints are few and far between.
Almost every used Citroen C5 started life as a company or fleet car, so condition will vary. Buy only the tidiest examples that look like they've been cared for. Don't shy away from high-mileage examples; they could have spent most of their time on the motorway and, if serviced on schedule, could make a reasonable buy.
