Yes I do. If someone's interested they will click the link...it doesn't take that long. I will add a picture though.

To be honest, if I had £127k spare, I would spend the extra £120k on an Aston

Just checked bank balance..... Looks like I'm off to the Citroen Garage.

Cheapest for road tax too, only £20 for a whole year

Before the scrappage scheme, you could buy one of these for £4999.99 so its still over-priced really. Still its fairly cheap, group 1E insurance and over 60mppg and £20 road tax :)

Erm, sounds like you have to take finance to get the deal and the car has to be delivered between 1st April to 30th April to get the extra £1700 off.

I've got one of these. They're great for the money and roomier than you may think.

Not sure about 62mpg though - you'd need a VERY light foot. I get around 50 driving "normally" :)

They're actually Czech, along with the almost identical Peugeot 107 and Toyota Aygo.

It's hardly a citroen, bar the badge. It's really a Toyota.

Great comment, would you recommend this one as a template which meets your demanding requirements?

why no details or picture or does a generic logo count?

My dad's a mechanic too. The hydraulic system on the BX's and Xantias were actually quite easy to repair. They were certainly different, but not difficult to rectify any issues. The big problems though came with the electrical system and ECU's!

I used to have a Citroen BX diesel. Can't say I noticed it being really crap. The suspension was very cheap to fix if anything went wrong. I also had a Citroen Xantia 1.9TD, great engine, the clutch cable would snap and it was a right pain to fix, apart from that it worked ok. The best thing about them is the suspension, which gives a fantastic ride if a bit wallowy in the corners. I'd have the new C5 but unfortunately I couldn't handle the depreciation in value which French cars especially Citroen suffer from.

I used to courier in a BX estate. The hydraulics started playing up at around 125k and were never the same after that. Constant hassle. Engine was indestructable though. The non-turbo diesel 1.8. Pretty much a tractor engine. lol. Comfy on the motorway mind you! :)

Slight back on topic ... friend of mine is getting an Aygo next week (Toyota version of this) and he is six foot nine. LOOOOOOOOL!

Hmm let me guess, is it to do with the oil being on their doorstep and no transport costs, 3rd parties etc? Simple economics, we got shafted by the banks, but also people have to take responsibility, they couldn't have done it without us. Some of us were stupid enough to take on the loans or desperate enough. The country can stand up against it but the debt has to be paid, so it will be applied elsewhere if fuel prices were to come down, which they won't. I blame the banks and the people who took the money from the banks. Essentially fuel prices will stay high and get higher and there's nothing you can do about it.

Anyway back on topic, honestjohn quick review >

C1 (2005 - )
Good: Cheap VED, Group 1 insurance, 60mpg, cheap to run, drives decently, inexpensive to buy, good NCAP score.
Bad: Reports of water leaks. Clutches highly prone to failure due to water ingress.

yeh despite being the same group as peugeot they dont seem as well put together......was looking at a C3 a while back but was shocked at how expensive and poor they were for the money.......bought a 10 month old 6000 mile Merc A class for almost £1.5K less than a C3 1.4 (£10.1K, C3 was £11500) - the dash was a joke and way too high...i have a peugeot 307xsi too which is good, better than the 308 imo.

cold, as the peugeot deal is much cheaper, and is essentially the same car
#29
These cars are no more French than the Toyota Aygo is Japanese. Manufacturers' names don't mean a lot these days.

You don't seem to be getting shot down in flames at all :p
Still - a picture IS manadtory, I'd have thought, although some people DO post the most misleading and even dopey pics !X)
#31
The C1 eats clutches for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I'd sooner pay more road tax and get something more substantial.

I'm sure the clutch issue is now sorted.
#33

From memory Peugeot have a 60k warranty where as Citroens is 100k so for those that do a lot of miles the C1 is the better buy.
#34
not such a good deal IMHO, £8,695 is a bit steap for a base model considering they could be had for under £6,000 3 years ago

riiiiiight so you're basing that on a car from 20+ years ago, some of which I still see on the road now with no rust (for the obvious reason) the hydraulic suspension is actually very good when it's looked after b y a mech who knows how to look after it.

Xantia used v2 of it and loads of them about bomb proof diesels too

Grand C4 Picasso easily the best MPV around at the moment in the price bracket too
#36
I would never have a French car UNTIL i had a complete mental breakdown [it seems] and bought a Peugeot 307 diesel it is a superb car no problems at all. Please forgive me

So, due to the fact that time machines are not yet available, this is a good deal??

no, the Peugeot 107 is a better deal, more realistic price for such a basic car
