Celine the Citroen C2

CITROEN C2 1.4i Design 3dr (Review date: 4th January '14)

4.8

I have owned Celine for over a year now, and I have loved driving it. It has been a brilliant first car, fun to drive on short city trips as well as for longer motorway journeys. So reliable, I have only had routine work and very minor repairs done to it. Sturdy car for the winter-starts up with no fuss and heats up very quickly- and stands out too. I can't fault it!

Thanks Celine :)

Better than the more modern C1.

CITROEN C2 1.1i LX 3dr (Review date: 27th October '13)

4.5

Spritely around town and a capable motorway cruiser at normal speeds.

Clever independent seats are not so practical as they seem because the front seats have to be adjusted too far forwards for the back and base of the rear seats to both be folded.

Good for two people and good luggage space or just adequate for four adults and reduced boot space.

Light steering, clutch and gear change. Strong servo assistance to brakes.

The only slightly dished seat bases have little lateral support but prove comfortable on a journey. in this respect the Furio has much better seats but at a cost.

Fuel economy now averaging 42-43 mpg in semi urban use but 50 MPG easily obtainable when cruising..

It is only an LX but the trip computer includes a high/low engine oil gauge and the car also has an adjustable speed warning buzzer.

I had the cam belt changed at the 7 year service; only 24000 miles covered in total as a second car, but our mechanic said the old belt showed more signs of wear than he expected.

A Citroen main dealer mechanic told me, for my year of car, the cam belt did not need to be changed until 10 years or 100,000 miles....be warned!

New rear box for the exhaust system; not bad after 98 months. Will this replacement pattern part last as long?

An interesting caveat to Citroen's reputation for iffy electrics; so far our car has had no problems, but after seven years of ownership, I opened the boot of this, my wife's car for the first time in the dark. No boot light.

Thinking the bulb must have blown, I removed the cover to check the spec for a replacement.

The bulb wiring was not connected to the main wiring loom.

I joined up the connectors and the light came on to work reliably ever since.

Was it ever connected at the factory?

My wife seems never to have noticed it did not work. Nor me for that matter. No jokes please!

With winter 2013/14 approaching, I changed the original Michelins, no visible decay and still with 3mm of tread all round as the tyres have been rotated, to Goodyear Vector 4 seasons tyres.

Overall, purchased for £6500 as a 5 month old, main dealer ex demonstrator; after 105 months of ownership, still a super buy.

Great little car

CITROEN C2 1.4 HDi SX 3dr (Review date: 7th September '13)

Bought this car initially to travel from Hampshire to Scotland when relocating. Needed to consider fuel economy, comfort and space for suitcases etc., and it has been perfect for the job. Now settled in our new location and get frequent visits from our grandchildren which requires a larger 5 seater.

Excellent and Economical car

CITROEN C2 1.4 HDi Design 3dr (Review date: 23rd June '13)

5

very cheap to run car, tax only £35 and cheap to insure. excellent for town driving and parking in small spaces but still enough space and good motorway car. Can be a bit noisey on the motorway and mine doesnt have air conditioning as it was an extra cost at time of purchase. Excellent visibility too.

citroen c2 2007 special edition by loeb , 1.6

CITROEN C2 1.6i 16v by LOEB 3dr (Review date: 21st May '13)

absouletely love this car! its nippy , small , easy to park! , surprisingly not bad size inside with seats down if you need to transport anything!,

not too bad on petrol costs, the only thing i didnt cope with is not very big for a family , ok for small children in the back but when they reach teenager the space is very cramped in the back , but other than that its perfect ! attractive aswell, would say more suitable for young driver than for a family as such .

CITROEN C2 1.4i 16V Rhythm Stop & Start 3dr Sensodrive

CITROEN C2 1.4i 16V Rhythm Stop and Start 3dr SensoDrive (Review date: 12th April '13)

4

A very practical little car with a large capacity when the seats are down. Lots of storage. A useful split rear door. Very nifty with loads of technology. Automatic but can be driven as semi-automatic using the paddle controls on the steering wheel. Stop and Start takes some getting used to but makes the car very economical

great first car and cheap run around

CITROEN C2 1.1i Design 3dr (Review date: 12th June '12)

4

I think this is a nifty little car, I have owned mine for around 2 years with no faults and little money spent on services etc. the fuel consumption is decent for the 1.1i petrol. Mine has started to play up a little with the electrics,if the front wiper is on the rear windscreen wiper will go when not turned on.When you start the car and the front wiper was left on before, it does not turn on automatically all the time. Apart from that it's been a good car for me (male-26) and good spec and character for a good price.

The Brilliant Citroen C2

CITROEN C2 1.4 HDi SX 3dr (Review date: 11th February '12)

4.5

well the car is a brilliant wee car for my lifestyle it is a sporty wee car smooth on the road. It is a very easily run car as it does 60mpg is £50 to fill up with diesel and only £20 a year tax. The pros of the car would be that it is so easily run it is very easily parked and it is very good looking. There are only a few cons which would be the boot is very small and there is only 4 seats.
