Bought my C5 just over 3 years old 30,000 on clock, suspension went £800 to fix, citroen replaced wheels FOC cracked, Exhaust went £500 to replace, rear calipers design fault heat transfrred from pads to calipers replaced £300, front strut leaking £600 to replace, this is a smooth car but so unreliable hope I never see such junk on the road again and a number of these things happened with less than 36,000 on the clock, Citroen were terrible(I contacted the director of Citroen in britain nice… Read Full Review

“I have found my Citroen C5 to be an excellent example...”

Written on: 18/12/2008 by AbooUK (1 review written)

I have found my Citroen C5 to be an excellent example of poor engineering, it is currently sitting outside my house with a suspension fluid leak, which you may think is bad, let me explain why this is not so. This is the first suspension problem I've had, it is a 52 plate Jan 2003 C5 lx 2.0 HDi 110, it was purchased by myself on Jan 2006 with 35k on the clock, it now has 213k on the clock and yet still I can get 65MPG on a long run, and still overtakes with ease, it never requires oil top ups… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/12/2007 by grahamthomas (1 review written)

We bought this Citroen C5 fitted under warranty. We then had to have a new gearbox costing £3000 as it was out of warranty. Citroen UK would not even discuss this, the gearbox had broken a piece of the actuall bell housing in the casting inside the box to me this has to be a warrenty claim as I think the casting is defective… Read Full Review

You should be able to pursue this claim as all items in the UK sold must be "fit for purpose" if a part fails due to a manufacturing defect the warranty is irrelevant, you should pursue it.

“Because of the technology, the Citroen C5 2.2HDi...”

Written on: 29/08/2006 by alecwalker (1 review written)

Because of the technology, the Citroen C5 2.2HDi Exclusive Saloon can be costly servicing, eg. a comment came up which stated diesel additive minimum level. I checked my faithful manual and was instructed to contact my dealer. I thought it was a simple case of adding some type of lubricant, how wrong was I? Total cost was £410! It turned out I had to replace several items to leave the car right. This did not impress me! It's a good car but like all modern motors, cannot be worked on by your… Read Full Review

“The Citroen C5 suspension should not have collapsed...”

Written on: 14/04/2006 by Moodyblue (1 review written)

The Citroen C5 suspension should not have collapsed after such a moderate mileage. The car is only 4 years old. Collapse preceeded by loud (I mean LOUD) 'tang' noises, like driving over loose manhole cover. Got louder and louder. Pedestrians started to look as it was so loud. Local garages could find no cause, howver, Worleys Citroen in High Wycombe said both sides of rear suspension had collapsed. Huge cost, but then the boss of this moderate small town dealership drives a top of the range… Read Full Review

Written on: 15/04/2008

My Suspension dropped at 75k and also cost me £1000.
<br/>I also have a knocking sound (ball socket apparently). Citroen say it's a problem with the earlier models.
<br/>Problem after problem for me - And expensive to fix.
<br/>Total cost in less than 1 yr? For me... &pound;2500.00 and counting...
