Hi all, I just purchased a 1.4 Petrol 2005 Citroen C3 with 45k miles and so far so good! I was always dubious about touching French cars because of the horror stories but I decided to put that aside and go for it. Really glad I did, I feel like they have so much character... Car handles great, parts are so cheap and the car looks to be a doddle to work on.

I shall update with any niggles or problems that occur as I put some miles on. So if anybody else is looking then feel free to ask me questions.

Mike

Hi Mike , thanks for your post

You have a very low mileage there, you shouldn't get any niggles for a good few more miles :)

Feel free to answer any of the outstanding forum questions if you can :)

Will do but unfortunately my fist niggle has arrived! Haha. The mileage may be low but it is old still ;)
