This has been a brilliant car for us, it has covered 144,000 miles to date (49,000 since we bought it) and is still going strong. There's loads of space inside and the rear of the car lowers at the touch of the button to make loading heavy items easier. The ride is ultra smooth, especially on the motorway, and the front seats are very comfortable with their built-in armrests.
Running costs are very reasonable, road tax is currently £125 per year and the HDi engine is brilliant on diesel… Read Full Review

Never had a better car than the Citroen C5 SX 2.0 HDi. Plenty of power, Have even park-tronic, Sensor for tires and rain, airbags everywhere, triptronic, and you don't find a more comfortable car. Top cruiser, I have been driving 1000 km in 12 hours, and not even felt tired in my back. I have not found any bad points, maybe only it is not easy to change lights in front. It is so good that I have bought one wagon too… Read Full Review

Our diesel Citroen C5 has been the most reliable and fuel economical car we have ever owned.
It's the more comfortable and practical car also, anything the road throws at it, it's suspension simply soaks it up, giving you the nicest ride on any surface.
Could not find a better car in its field… Read Full Review

We got the Citroen C5 from a main dealer in Worksop, first day it would not let us drive it due to a sensor fault, returned to dealer, then the outside temp gauge went, rtd, then the air I take sensor, then the ecu failed, twice, then had a new cat and exhaust, new discs and pads, then all the locks, then another sensor, and all the time the car dances, yes jumps up and down like a drug dealers car, common fault I € m told. then when you leave it for a number of days it drains the battery… Read Full Review

Very unfortunate as we really liked this Citroen C5 SX at first. Citroen UK are also apparently unable to find a C5 estate to loan us… Read Full Review

I purchased a Citroen C5 SX in Sept 2004 with full history. It's better built than I expected but fuel economy is disappointing considering it's a diesel. Errant warning lights and on one occasion no electrics at all on startup which cleared only after 5 mins. Performance, comfort and practicality are the plus points but legroom is quite poor. I am only 5ft 9in and it's tight… Read Full Review

I work for a Company in the North who purchased 3 low mileage 2001 reg
Citroen C5's for our sales team. I inherited one of the cars and have ran it for the last couple of years. I would never have chosen a Citroen myself but have been pleasantly surprised by the reliability and quality of this car for the money.
There has been only one real persistant problem which all 3 cars suffered from but may be explained. Every 3 - 4 months the cars would start up in economy mode and then you would… Read Full Review

The car in question is a Citroen C5 2.0 110bhp VTR. My problem with the vehicle is that the flywheel is a major fault, as this makes a noise at turn off, and also when changing gear. The noise sounds like it is a big bird under the bonnet, but until Citroen find a fix, we all have to put up with this annoying problem.
If anyone else is having this problem, get in touch with Citroen before your warranty runs out, or you will have to PAY to get rid of the noise… Read Full Review

The Citroen C5 SX HDI 110HP is a nice car let down by too many stupid problems.
Not since I had an Austin Maxi have I experienced oil leaks. To have this complaint on such a car is just unbelievable. Then to have the same handbrake recall as the Xantia and the same crude fix is astounding. Although overall noise levels are low, there are a lot of suspension noises over broken surfaced roads, especially around town. I had this problem addressed by Citroen putting additional sound-proofing in the… Read Full Review

After 36,000 miles of running a C5 I have very mixed feelings about this car.
On the one hand it is the best motorway cruiser I have ever owned. Regular 300 mile journeys result in no stresses or strains and the car laps up the miles, achieving 45 mpg. It is so much roomier and more comfortable than the various hire cars, Vectras, Mondeos, etc that I have had to use at too frequent intervals. The ride is unbelievably smooth on anything but rutted lanes and the engine is strong and… Read Full Review
