Hi there

Postby zipdip » Thu Jan 26, 2012 5:08 pm

I am back in the Citroen fold after a few years with VX,I cannot seem to kick the C5 habit not because I have fond memories of my last C5 a complete money pit :( it was 2001 V6 Exclusive loved all the gadgets but it was a pain,I suspect it was damaged at sometime at the front repaired but they left a suspension pump that was needing replaceing it use to blow 40 amp fuses,then it developed a misfire went into dealership and they replaced all six of the leads at a cost of £500 sovs,that and the potential cost of £700 for a pump sent me away from Citroen as the motor was only worth £1500,but I am back I got such a good deal on a C5 1800 VTR+ 2009 with 22OOO miles one owner I could not turn it down.
Best Regards

Welcome Zipdip :-D

Just goes to show... Once the Citroen bug bites it can never be cured... Not even the charms of Luton's finest could keep you away...

Here's hoping the new C5 will be a good 'un for you....

Hi Citro Jim I think you are right once you have sampled the charms of the C5 you are hooked,I am amazed at the quality of these new C5s members of the family think the rear end looks like a BMW another thinks it looks like a Audi,whatever, the build quality seems very good,only time will see if the french have learnt how to do electrics,but boy I am enjoying driving it ,the sound system is great,I even love all the stupid cubby holes glasses in one ,toll money in another,and I know its crazy but the windscreen washers are the best I have ever used on any car,they spray as a fan onto the screen,just superb.
Best Regards

Welcome back to Citroen ownership :)

The majority of C5s seem to be diesels, not many 1.8 petrols about really, thought it might be the better bet in some ways.

I thought all C5s have fan style windscreen washer jets, all mine have.
