Citroen C4 Cactus 1.2 PureTech Feel 5dr (6 speed) 19 Plate Delivery Miles - save 38%

I genuinely expect this to go cold as (A) it's a citroen & (B) a bit like a Juke it's very much a marmite car. But it's a huge saving of 38 % on a "focus/astra" sized car, making this great value for the spec that comes as standard.

110bhp petrol - 6 speed version & 3yrs warranty.

What? It doesn't have the egg boxes on the sides? - I liked them!
Quick review as recently bought one. Very smooth ride and comfy seats, infotainment is also good with rear camera, android/apple Air play and parking sensors. Love the bump protection which is great if you get quite a few knocks and bumps.

On the downside, this car is tiny inside and a real struggle if you are pretty tall and have larger children in the back seat. It's also not the most responsive car on slip roads, expect to have quite a few impatient Audi/BMW drivers with small man syndrome up your rear. The speakers are also absolutely awful so if you like music new speakers are an essential upgrade. Cup holder is ridiculously small.

In short, it's a great car for local journeys, school runs with younger kids and a trip to ASDA but not great as a family car replacement or long journeys.

Not bad, better than BMW, Audi and Land Rover anyway.

£145, every petrol and diesel car with a list price of under £40,000 that has been registered on or after April 1st 2017 is the same figure.

Even if you ended up paying £500 a year for next 3 years on repairs it will work out far cheaper than buying this.

Ragging an engine per se doesn't kill a turbo. Ragging it in the first five minutes, or ragging it then pulling over and turning off the engine without letting the turbo spin and cool down will.

The turbo will only spin twice as fast as "normal" if you are giving it some welly, it doesn't directly correlate with revs.
Take a lot for me to go near a Citroen or roen as we used to call them. About 5/6 years ago the company I worked for had belingo vans. They were awful. Pretty sure In the 3 years I had mine it had 4 new bearings and 2/3 driveshafts and new clutch. It wasn’t just me others pretty much same issues. Sure there’s a warranty but when you’re leaving a vehicle in a garage for most of the week it’s pretty pointless.

Who pays £500 a year for repairs? Have to have very bad luck, or be paying Halfords to refill your screenwash.

I budget a max of £200 per year per car for repairs, including parts.
Not my type but heat for the deal. It's very good value for money
Better looking than the Nissan Puke

Don't forget putting the turbo under load at low revs and not changing oil frequently. That will shorten turbo life.

Nailed the main culprit though. See it all the time when people don't let a turbo spool down. 200,000 RPM to 0 with no lubricant... ouch. Saying that the response you tend to get is:

'I'll only have it 2 years then I will be handing it back.'

It's always put me off the 2nd hand turbo market.
Do you get to keep the car after the lease term?

The turbo on this car, and many others nowadays is cooled by water as well as oil - this has stop-start (referred to as S&S in the title) if suddenly stopping the engine would damage the turbo, it couldn't have this system.

How does that work for you when a £300 component fails?

It's impossible to budget for repairs, by their nature they often come as a surprise.

The turbo has nothing to do with changing oil unless the oil has completely lost its properties, highly unlikelly, any oil is fed under pressure to a thrust bearing, it is merely pressure which wedges the bearing in place,(hence the name thrust) perhaps look up Charles or Boyles law to confirm this.This will demonstrate that a high temperature (loss of cooling) or loss of volume (loss of oil) will directly cause a pressure issue involving pressure/thrust.

It's not a lease dude.
This 110 bhp looks a little better; however, I was given the lower powered version as a AVIS rental recently and I’ve never been so glad to give a car back. It was painfully slow and the steering totally unresponsive.
Drove this as a holiday rental. It was okay. Steering felt a bit wooly and did just okay economy wise. Worst thing was; that the kids constantly felt car sick. I mean every trip in the dann thing. The ride is just too soft.

My wife has one with 40k on the clock and it needs a new cat which is a common problem on Peugeot. Rear disks are expensive. Drop links/ARB's wear out at about this mileage too.

Still counts towards the possible £500 cost, they're not things you'd expect to sort on a new car. But my point was it's still more cost effective running a car costing £500 a year in repairs and items above what you'd expect in a routine service like belts, filters etc than buying this.
