Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used DS DS 5 hatchback?

The 5 is a large executive car with many electrical goodies, so check that they all work as they should, especially the electric seats and rear tailgate (where fitted). It’s also a car that’s quite difficult to judge the extremities of, despite its high driving position and reversing camera on some models, so check the bodywork for scuffs and dents and the alloy wheels for kerb damage.

There was a recall for a starter motor wire that was badly positioned and could in some circumstances cause a short circuit, so check that this work has been carried out. Otherwise, there have been reports of electrical problems based around the sat-nav and the dashboard, but no recurring serious issues.
