Want to know everything there is to know about this car?

In their own words

It's comfortable, well equipped, and very economical. However, in 6 months of ownership, it has spent the last 5 months in a garage having it's DPF and EGR changed (EGR twice), as well as multiple oil leakes, collapsed DPF breather pipes, broken wires, faulty alarm sensors (being woken up at 1am was not fun) and faulty fuel cap sensor preventing DPF regenerations. It's a great car, but the 1.6L Diesel engines are the love-child of Citroen, Peugeot and Ford. However, decided to grace these cars with such a terrible lump has a lot to answer for. If you're gonna get a Diesel, get the 2.2L.
