but its a fiat....
what is wrong with it being a fiat? (Waits for people still stuck in the 70,s and 80,s)
​wasn't it fiat 500's that wouldn't go uphill and wouldn't do anything about it untill watchdog covered the story
Yes but it was a certain engine and it was sorted with an ECU update.
Perhaps nobody should buy Vauxhalls because the Zafira and Corsa catch fire or Toyota because of brake problems, or BMW for wiring and ECU issues, or do I need to go on?
Well said Jim. Live in wet Swansea wales and Have had fiat and alfas all my life and never suffered from tin worm
Ah! So the answer to stopping rust is keep them wet! Thanks for your advice.
Have you actually owned a fiat?
No, I've always bought a car!

You are negative, this is not Fiat 500 and in any case you are misleading people with old news from 2014 without catching up on fixed news in Jan 2015 and now we are Nov 2016. One year and 10 months you are still negatively burnt in your head and try to put off people with old news.


​wow. do you have photos of fiats all over your walls with candles lit. you should get a girlfriend mate and occupy your time a little better. obviously you drive a fiat and arn't prepared to hear negative comments on the pretty girly cars

Surprised as. We have had nine fiats and are currently on our 6th ALFA and the only real problem has been the dealers who are useless. But fortunately there are some good ALFA indys out there.
Really pleased that you have had good fortune. I forgot to mention the dealer network, absolutely laughable. One of my Fiat purchases lasted all of two days. The dealer made such a **** up, the car had to be returned or legal action would have followed. Honestly, I take no great pleasure in slagging off Fiat as they design lovely cars, unfortunately building them is a problem, for me anyway. My favourite two cars were both Fiats. The 500, the last Fiat we bought was a design icon, but almost killed my wife. My previous Fiat to that was a Grande Punto Multijet Sporting. 1.9 diesel that went like stink, and great fuel economy. Alas, Fiat no more as my wife has threatened to have me sectioned as insane if I buy another one!

Can someone please explain how much you need to cover on GAP insurance?

Is it the value of the car when it's written off against the value of the car when it's taken out of lease?

e.g.

£7500 - £10000 therefore the GAP is £2500
z_2994
Is gap insurance necessary? And how much more are you usually looking at?

You don't have to take it but your eyes will water with the costs if you write the car off.

Do you just have to buy fuel and insurance? Do you need anything special like GAP insurance?
What happens if a tyre gets a puncture? Would it need servicing in the first 2 years?
Gap insurance is a good idea for the pennies it costs a month. It is just fuel and insurance which is 100% needed though. Its not maintened so if you had a puncture u would have to repair yourself. And 1 service would be needed as its an 18 month deal.
Can anyone service it? Or does it have to be main dealer?

My current Citroen lease states that I must use a Citroen service centre.

Have u leased direct from citroen?


I leased through Skyfleet but contract is with Citroen 1st service on C4 Picasso was £175 with the C1 as courtesy car.

I don't like French cars, dodgy electrics.
I had the pleasure of driving a Peugeot 407 for a while and the electric wing mirrors would randomly fold in and stay there whilst I was cruising on the motorway.
Only way I could fix it was by pulling across to the hard shoulder (carefully) and turning off the ignition to reset it.
That's ok as its a Toyota with a Citroen badge slapped on it.

Fair comment, guess it's hard for French companies to shake off that perception of poor quality and reliability from days gone by unlike Skoda who really seem to have nailed it.

I'm genuinely considering leasing.

Could someone please explain what the 9+23 rental profile means? Any other tips and advice?

I'm 29. Been driving since 17 but have always bought used cars under £4k and then spent loads on servicing and maintenance over the years. I fancy drivimg a new car now.

Why do you need sports suspension in a car that will probably just be used to take little charlie to school n back, and drive to Sainsburys once a week?

Would love this; I can afford the car but as I'm 19 I think insurance would kill me

You can get a nearly new (well 10 year old and mostly working) Vauxhall for half this money and you get to keep it. Why would you go for this?

Awaiting those who think buying a seven year old BMW is better...

In before "that is one fugly motor".
Been looking for a Citroen C4 cactus lease deal. Was going to get 1.6 diesel flair but it was more like £213 with metallic paint. What colour does this come as standard in? Hope it isn't Hello yellow, not my cup of tea.

Also why 18 months? Is it cause this time of year lease deals are pretty good and they want people to have to get another lease car around Christmas when deals aren't as good?

The more I look at this deal the more tempted I'm becoming. Test drove a 208 gti Peugeot sport at the weekend and was pleasantly surprised by it.
Has a anyone here had any experiences with this company before?

Me too, but I'm tied into a lease atm with a couple of years left! I'm tempted to give it a test drive but that will do more harm than good if I enjoy it :P

I haven't had any experience with V4B personally, but there's been a few posts from there popping up recently and nobody's had anything bad to say about them, if that helps.

Hi guys. I had the C1 FEEL deal around year ago and my lease is coming to an end next week. I went in to my local Citroen Dealer and he has offered me the C1 FLAIR 5 DOOR 1.2 with a colour of my choice (metallic, I chose the Carlnite Grey) I pay £100/per month 1+ 17 month (18month). Initial payment of £300. no admin fee no deposit no catch. I had a little discount added as I decided to carry on with citroen fiance motoring. and to top this great deal I get 15,000 miles per year. (22,500) for the duration of the lease !!!!!! I don't know why we deal with these lease companies who offer admin fee's for them to "process" the deal LOL
I contacted Citroen & they said they didnt do Leasing direct, & put me through to Evans Halshaw Leasing!
Strange that as I have just received my monthly Invoice from Citroen Contract Motoring.
Mine arrived last week. Loving it so far! Thanks OP for making me aware!

FRENCH!!

Bore off, you post the same comment on every deal. It's a joint venture between Toyota and Citroen and it's made in Czech Republic... so it's a French brand, but the car it's self isn't really that French, as had been pointed to you before, although I'm not entirely sure you can read.
FRENCH!!
Shame it's not the Flair, much better kit, the only Flair they have is ETG (automatic).

Seems a good deal @ around £100 a month with no road tax and only 1 service needed, although you will essentially lose 6m of the value of the service as you hand it back.

Been looking at a 3+23 deal on the Flair based on 5,000 miles (that's all daughter needs), coming out at £93 a month with a lower upfront than this, works out about £115 a month which is more than your deal, so if its what you want I doubt you'll find a cheaper deal.

NB with the Flair you get (for one thing) a reversing camera, which you can option for £180.

Evans Halshaw (via WhatCar) offer free metallic paint also.

Yes, this has expired now - possibly for the best, as I'm having a bit of a nightmare with this.

Car was supposed to be delivered on Tuesday, but they said it had a fault they were working on. It didn't come on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday (today), and I'm left without a car, an ETA, or any detail about what's going on except that the car's not working.

I was unimpressed with the leasing agent, who I needed me to chase them up to get a delivery date in the first place, and now Citroen are completely miss-handling a problem with the car. No courtesy car, and minimal communication with very few details.

Also hoping the 18 months starts from when I get the car, not when it was registered (coming up to a month ago), otherwise I get 17 months of a car for the price of 18!

Hope this all gets sorted soon.

Edit: this has all been sorted now, and they provided a refund for the inconvenience, so they handled it well in the end. Hope other people had a smoother experience.

Mines on the way for next Tuesday - looking forward to getting it!
The deal should ve expired however, as the deal has gone. Let's hope another decent deal pops up around the end of this lease!

You'll love it - it's perfect :) the electric parking brake takes some getting used to! I keep plunging my hand into the little storage compartment where the brake should be. But its great, a real leap from my 12yr old car!

I'm not sure what's happening with my order. I made the first payment a week ago & still don't have a delivery date, though have received all documentation from Citroes. Did others need to wait a while before getting a delivery date?

Yep it certainly takes a while - I made my first payment almost 3 weeks ago and only recently received my delivery date (it's finally arriving Tuesday!) the cars are making their way over from France so sit tight :) you can always chase it up with V4B if in doubt. Citroen have told me they're putting some new mats in the car, not sure if that's standard but I'll take it :3 also remember to call Citroen and get your 7 days free insurance

Has anyone had issues with parking brake warning lights where it asks you to contact dealer? Also despite the car being at a standstill "engine running warning switch ignition off before leaving car" messages that also makes a warning sound for around 20 secs, does the same at every junction.
Had to get the AA out who told me that Audi know about a software issue affecting A4 that requires a dealer hard reset, they showed me how to soft reset it but today its back again
so a bit cheesed off that after 2 days driving ive got problems. Just wondered how widespead it is
ive had this fault, has anyone else? will they fix it under the warranty?

Yeah they fixed mine under warranty but I had to write to the CEO of Audi UK first as my local dealer refused to touch it initially (I bought it from York Audi). Their CEO dept admitted that all dealers knew of the issue on certain batches and that they had to perform a reset before despatch - York Audi admitted they ballsed up by not doing it and offered a free service for the inconvenience, the local dealer fixed it after the CEO dept told them to fix it

who did you speak to? I spoke to a guy from Oxford Audi but I might give a ring to Audi FS. Thanks.

That's what I thought, and Audi Doncaster's leasing bloke told us that, but in the paperwork we received it confirmed that we're neither owner nor keeper, both are the lease company. Fortunately my insurer changed it without charge in the end, but do check with the lease company themselves rather than the dealer, as the dealers definitely gave us the wrong info on that one.

that's cheap.
​it's French. They generally are cheap.

They don't make many decent cars. The two stand out French cars whether you like them or loathe them are the Citroen DS3 and Citroen Cactus. The problem with French cars is the huge depreciation, you'd be literally crazy to buy one new.

Yes, you're missing the £360 processing fee which essentially adds £30 per month.

Yes, they checked tyre tread depth.
I got hit for £437 worth of charges. He was able to point to some damage that I hadn't even been aware of. I can't say that I can disagree with the damage, and the costs don't seem unreasonable on a one-by-one basis, but getting the bill at once is a shock.
What type of damage was it, it can't have been obvious if you weren't aware of it. (Just trying to check mine before pickup later this week).

It was quite significant. Someone had obviously hit the back bumper while the car was parked and driven off without leaving a note. There was a break in the paint and a hole of about half a square centimetre. I had honestly never noticed it before because we hadn't done the damage. I was most concerned about getting the inside cleaned. There were no problems with the inside at all. Really annoying, but I guess it isn't Citroen's fault.

Mines gone today, 3 x £65 for scuffed wheels was quoted 110 each locally so jobs a good 'un.
Wasn't even worried about the service book not being stamped even though it's been serviced as it's less than 10k miles!

Hi did they check the wheel for corrosion? mine has corrision and did they check tyre tread depth?

wow, i have just taken 3 wheels off to be professionally revamped. no other marks on the car at all , i didnt realise they were so strict!! did they go over the whole car with a toothpick?

Yes, very thorough.

There was one scratch I was aware of and I had been to see about getting it repaired. I had taken it to a backstreet body shop who quoted £170. I took it to Citroen who estimated £300. And the bill on giving it back was £120. So I wouldn't be too hasty to get things repaired before they come.

There was the tiniest of chips inside the door sill, I have no idea how he saw it, I could never have known it was there. He reckons it is the seat belt hitting it. But he got his measuring tool out, took a photo and told me that it was not chargeable.

As I said, they are very, very thorough, but decent. And not expensive.

I took delivery last week and absolutely love it.

Coming from an 08 Seat Ibiza, which was relatively good spec, this feels like a great upgrade. A really nice drive, already feeling the economical benefits getting c58mpg on almost 400 miles. The Cruise Control, once I got used to it, is much better than the one on my Ibiza. When I can maintain my speed I find myself adjusting it with the +/- buttons without touching the pedal. Super lazy!

A few tips for new Cactus owners are here: http://www.cactusforums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=674

Most you will find in the manual, but some nice little 'tricks' in there just to make your life easier.

Also - while not officially available in the UK (only France it seems) you can download Link My Citroen.

iOs guide here - http://www.cactusforums.co.uk/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=350
Android apk here - http://apk-dl.com/link-mycitro%C3%ABn/com.psa.citroen

It is a nice little app and syncs your trips, MPG, and more via bluetooth. A handly little tracker and you can even export your data by email (say for things like budgeting, buying your car insurance, etc).

Thanks again OP. While delivery took a little longer for me than I had hoped, there is no getting away that this is a superb deal.
Simple solution who's name is on the V5 (log book) If you've got one and it has your name on it, it's you if you haven't it's not.
I told my insurance it was a lease car they asked who I leased it from and that was that.

When I worked in Leasing, in all my deals the owner was the finance company.
The registered keeper was the individual or company that leased the vehicle.
It may be a miss communication from V4B. I've never known a lease for the leasing company and/or the Finance company to be the registered keeper. As people aluded to above, try explaining that to the police! Haha!
Please don't take this as financial/insurance advice tho... If in doubt, double check
Thanks for that. I checked with the V4B and citroen contract motoring and they both said I am not the registered keeper

The subtle or maybe not so subtle difference here is that this is Personal Contract Hire i.e. long term hire & not a Personal Lease deal i.e. Citroen Contract Motoring are noted as both the owner & registered keeper. Everyone should tell their Insurer just in case although most should have no issue as it's not really a rating factor. (I suspect there is a Tax loophole here somewhere (?) meaning CCM do this so they can reclaim the VAT on these vehicles by owning them for a certain time period which is why the deal is being made available at such a low rate to the punter i.e. 20% on an alleged value of approx. £17K is quite a lot of money to claim back from the tax man, add the 18 month rental......well you can all do the maths!)

I can't believe the amount of toys you get for your money, I was not expecting to have phone/radio controls on the steering wheel too! Brilliant!! Went on my first journey today, its going to take a bit of getting use to from my old 2002 Skoda Fabia but it really is a great buy, I would recommend this car if you intend to use it for a maximum of two people as there is only about enough room for 2 pieces of A4 paper in the backseats!
Great lease not buy.
If you can tell me a brand new car under £12,000 that I can buy that will appreciate by less than £1181.80 in 12 months then please let me know!

Most cars you can buy will appreciate by less than £1181.80. I think you may have your appreciates and depreiciates mixed up. Which may explain why you feel you have actually purchased this car, rather than leased it.

Anyway my comment was mildly tongue in cheek, so enjoy your car.
