    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    I have been a citroen lover for years, having had four XM's and could not afford a new C6 when they came out, so I had a series of Mercedes C, E and latterly an S class. When I had a bad experience with it, I decided to retirn to my old love I sourced an ex Citroen management car and bought it.

    I bought the car from my local Honda dealer who is a friend of mine. I had sourced my four Mercedes from him, and asked him to find a C6 for me. He did so.

  • Driving it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    What's it like to drive?

    The car just wafts along, but it can respond to fast and sporty handling if you want. I always feel safe , but it doesn't handle too well on very narrow, twisty bits !!

    What's it like to park?

    OK, but the warning beepers help. It is a big motor, you must remember.

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Yes, I only use the car for longish journeys, assuming that short shopping trips etc.are not good for the engine. Over the winter I was using my wife's Jazz, and the C6 sat unlocked in my locked garage for many weeks It appears that this rrained the battery ??

    What's most practical about your car?

    Space, comfort rarity finishes audio system the Citroen aura, performance silence. Just an unusual motor. Reasonable fuel consumption.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The number of toys and features have still to be played with, but the suspension and comfort of the car makes me smile whenever I drive it. My wife commented tht this is the first car we have had that she could put on her mascara while travellin!!
