- Retrogrouch MC tries a new C5 and is blown away.
I’ve never been into new cars and have been perfectly content driving older wheels. A diet of retro Minis, VWs, series Land Rovers and quirky old Citroens have kept me mobile since I passed my test.
This afternoon I had a spin in a new C5 estate. I was a scream, like something Tomorrow’s World would have predicted we’d be driving now back in the 70s.
I had a notion when I next need a replacement car to go for something German, but my mate had just bought this three year old 2.2 Exclusive which has all the toys for a tad over £5k. That represents a mahoosive depreciation from new, but is perfect for a shrewd used buy.
I think the C6 would be even more of a left field buy, but slightly less practical than an estate.Posted 4 years agomcmoonterMember
Reading the woes over on the Audi thread I can’t imagine Citroen reliability can be any worse. Citroen electrics for me have been pretty good. Everything worked on my previous XM when it finally died due to the clutch cable snapping at 180 000 miles. It was a dash out job I didn’t fancy, happily a C5 turned up on here and has been equally reliable.Posted 4 years ago
