I purchased Paula's C3 Pluriel in 2005.

Why - well its cute and absolutely suits her personality, - its unusual here in Australia thats good and bad - we keep seeing more of them when we travel overseas, so far seen them in France (not surpising) Rome, Florence, and Aukland New Zealand. Seem to be about 10 or so we have seen in Melbourne Australia.

Its great to drive and the versatility is amazing. It does not get many kms up as I drive a company car with a free fuel card and in the 8 years we have only clocked up 38 thousand kms. Like new.

I always call it "the ute" when its time to completely remove the roof and carry any large items. So far we have moved several lounge suites for the kids and the bulkiest load was a partially dismantled gazebo, looked like one of the girraffe transports with the gazebo about 8 feet tall sticking up out of the back.

Very pricey to get genuine service and repairs in Australia so I initially try to troubleshoot and do my own repairs. So far the biggest job was a rear window winder cable and other parts to replace and currently have a faulty heater blower which I hope the "resistor" pack will arrive in the mail today and be the fix required.

Hi David, welcome to the forum.

Thank you for your introduction.

Do you have a picture of 'the ute'? You are welcome to add them to your post. We don't see the pluriel in full 'spider' configuration - with the arches off, as its so likely to rain at any moment here in the UK its just not practical.

Last use was to move a sofa and chair in the evening.

Still to badly frostbitten to work a camera but will try to find a shot.
