Other Citroën C5 (2001 - 2004) models:

  • Summary

    2 out of 5 2.0

    What does this car say about you?

    I probably have an elderly relative that died and left it to me in a will.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    They politely ignore it.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    No - too expensive to maintain and run. I'd only buy another Citroen with a full manufacturers warranty because parts are expensive and experience thin on the ground.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Already replaced it with a Passat 'cause I just couldn't afford to keep fixing things. Shame really.

    It was cheap and the spec was high (it had lots of gadgets)

    What was the dealer like?

    Like a car dealer

    Fine thanks to sensors, but the nose is quite long
