New Citroen C1 1.0 VT 3 dr £5995 at Evans Halshaw

37
Found 8th Jun 2014
Good price for a brand new budget car, basic spec and I think it's only in red at this price. Normal manufacturer's 3 year warranty. Equivalent deal to the Peugeot 107 also posted on this site (which is how I found this deal). Seem to be lots of good reviews and happy owners.

Like driving a tin of beans but very cheap to run. Buy a tin opener as these have a common problem with the door locks (we know people with various aged cars and all seem to have encountered it. Fine under warranty of course). Ours has served its purpose and is about to move on. Certainly has a space in the market and a steal at this price.

lets just hope those dealing with Evans Halshaw are treated a bit better than my son has with the car he purchased from them..apalling customer service...not voting either way

Has the c1 got a better spec than the 107?

Is that an actual pic of the same spec car for sale?

Don't know about spec but same poor safety record

The VT is basic. No rev counter, no led lights, no air con and definitely no alloys. Trim up a level and things improve. I have the VTS and I love my shoe on wheels.

Agreed! The worst customer service I have ever experienced.

Bought a car from Evans Halshaw, they don't wanna know about any complaints once they have had your money.

I'd buy a better second hand car T.B.H.

Evans halshaw have been spot on with me, bought my last 3 cars from them and will be buying from them again in a few months. I suppose it depends where the dealer is located.

Had the misfortune of this company (pendragon plc) taking over our dealership,think customers get it bad ?

the car manufacturer closed the dealership/company due to problems reported by customers oO

None of those things are very important, though. Especially the alloys. I'd rather have two grand in the bank. We have air con, but we very rarely use it.

No air con is bad... Especially at the moment.

I'd never buy a car without aircon personally.

Evans have an awful rep, save the bother and get the 107 from pentagon.for same price, or spend more and get the aygo from a toyota dealership if you want the best customer service after lexus.

Switch on the air con, there is to much buffering if you open the window at any speed over 30.

To you, maybe. To others it's important. I like having a rev counter, and not having bits of plastic covering my wheels. To me, they are worth paying extra for.

I think we can safely say that this is the "regular" price for this car now - it's been possible to get one of these, or its variants, for this price for ages.

better to go for the 107 over the C1. Identical cars but the 107 holds its value better

There are other benefits to aircon like demisting your windscreen in cold weather.

Stop whingeing about there being no air-conditioning. Air-conditioning creates more problems than it solves.

Don't buy a car from these cowboys most of there second hand cars are x hire cars ask to see log book and watch the colour drain out off the sales man face

I bought my last car from EH in Darlington, and the service I received was exemplary.
The car was manufacturer recalled a few months later for some wiring to be replaced, and my local EH (Wakefield) couldn't do enough for me.

Yes it's a real problem on a sunny day basking in that stream of cool area rather than sweating or suchlike...;)

that's all depends on where you live, you won't find the air con used often in the northern part of the country

- 1 more thing that can brake
- 1 more part to service and potentially dangerous if left unserviced (breath in all the fungi and moulds spores )
- sore throat caused to some people if used in a very hot day (e.g. me)

Used to work (in bloody suit all year round) in one of the hot countries, I was getting really to sweat 1 millisecond after leaving the car , no help whatsoever, just a temporary comfort then a massive shock.

Mmm aircon definitely used by me up here in scotland. Got into my car today which said it was 21 outside. Air Con on and within seconds its lovely and cool,who wouldn't prefer that?

Getting it serviced is not really a hardship to be honest,if you want to look after your car then you get it done.
There are some cheapskates out there however who don't even do basic servicing and things let alone worry about the aircon but that's up to them.

I have never personally had my aircon 'break'

I have to say though in the days my cars didn't have air conditioning it was not a big deal. Now I wouldn't not want to have it.

I like these cheap deals,I have been saving for a first car for my teen for next year and something like this would be ideal for tootling to college/work and back.

Insurance quotes for this were not bad,the peugeot 107 does come in a bit cheaper though

you sound really savvy, I bet you bought a car on eBay instead did you?

Most cars on any dealer forecourt are ex hire, fleet/motability cars. I'd say about 80% of the used stock I sell is, nothing wrong with them.

Can't stand a whinger that thinks they know everything

Nothing wrong with ex hire. Just check the car over like you would any car.

I had an absolute bargain off Arnold Clarke and it was better than anything else I saw in the dealer network.

No just a muppet that has had a bad experience buying a car in the past because they didn't do their research!

Shame he/she can't vent their frustration more constructively and not knock what look like good deals on cheap runabouts...

I'd rather chop my cock off with a rusty spoon than deal with evans Halshaw again. I bought a £400 extended warranty from them which wasn't worth a penny. The small print dictated I pay £100 diagnostic fee for any issues, and when I took in my car they just kept wrongly diagnosed things and made sure those things were not covered under warranty. I ended up about £1000 out of pocket before giving up on it. Tw@s!!

If you wait a year and get something like a up with brake assist bet the insurance will be even cheaper and you would also get a car that does well in crash tests.

I'm all fairness I've lived in hot climes for the majority of the past 20 years and have to say I think AC is a "must have" when I buy a car these days.

In all of that time, I've owned one car that's now 20 years old (in Florida) which is a Nissan 240SX (S14) all that's ever needed to be done to the AC system is a quick recharge on 2 occasions, and we've owned that car since 2001. Each recharge was between $6~8 using a DIY "R134a" refill can from the local car parts store.

On the other hand my mums 2004 Kia Picanto needed a replacement condenser a couple of weeks back. The condenser was sourced on eBay for £83. I would have installed it myself (I was on holiday at the time) but I only had one day left of my break and didn't want to squander the last morning. The part was replaced by a local garage for £80 then the gas was refilled by ATS for free as it had only been recharged (for the first time in it's life) during the winter (@£27). So £160+£27, over 10 years isn't really that bad is it? Some people pay that for a car service, which really only involves a £15 oil & filter change...

I've never had any issues with AC regarding sore throats etc., but do know of people who think they are affected by it. That might just be down to the drier air or suchlike?

Another friend of mine just had her 2002 Honda Jazz AC system recharged last year (for the 1st time) but she got some sort of combo deal on the AC and MOT that was somehow less than the price of the MOT alone with a coupon. (<£25).

The funny thing with car AC systems in the UK is that it's very expensive to buy the DIY kits for recharging the system, it's much better/cheaper to wait for a deal at Kwik Fit/ATS etc., and let them take care of it.

Hint: Get the system recharged or serviced in the winter when there is little or no demand and they are happy to have extra business out of season.
