CITRËON C3

Do you use a CITRËON C3?

If so, tell us what you think about the car...

Pro's and cons of using the car for instruction.

What model do you use? (Eg. 1.4 Diesel)

How much does it cost to run?

Citroen C3

I've had my Citroen for just a year now and it's great. I've had both a Corsa and Clio in the past and neither of these come anywhere near the C3 in my opinion.

Good
Great driving position & vision as high up. Good road holding and handling. Good fulel economy. Good visibility for reversing or manoeuvreing. Easy to drive, smooth gears. 20k service intervals. Plenty of room in front footwells even for tall people. Height and reach adjustable steering column - really useful for smaller pupils. Height adjustable front seats. Rear wiper activated automatically when revrese selected. Also speed sensitive wipers so that when you stop in traffic you don't get the wipers scraping on the window! Beeps if you try you drive off at more than 4mph with the hand brake on. Clear digital speedo which is very easy to see from passenger side of car (as is whole instrument pannel). Pupils think it's great, not one complaint.

Bad
Reverse sometimes hard to select. Brakes a bit sharp but once pupils used to them no trouble. Not so spacious for rear passengers in terms of leg room but not bad.

Re: CITRËON C3

I have 1.4 desire diesel. bought from new. very comfy car changed from 206 to c3 all pups thought c3 far easier to use than pug.

Trimis a bit plasticky, but mine is purely for business. Digital spedo easy to see from passenger seat, easy for pups. Visibility as good as any small hatch, very light clutch and gears. Brakes feel very sharp at first butr as soon as you get used to it they are very positive.

steering very light at slow pace infact you can turn the wheel from passenger side with 1 finger in an emergancy. steering heavys up as you go faster.

As you sit semi mpv higher than say corsa or 206 you sit more erm chair like, seating could do with more support but i have not had any back trouble since changing from 206.

Average 50 mpg teaching daily on a pass plus near 65mpg.

My car has 20k service interval just cost £115 inc vat from a local citroen specialist, quoted £145 + vat at main dealer. think your 04 plate will be 12.5k service times (a bit more costly).

pm me if you want any more info.

Re: CITRËON C3

My father-in-law has one (personal use, not an ADI) and has had few complaints about it.  The few times I have had a drive, I found the gear stick a bit of a stretch and a poor turning circle (compared to a Micra anyway).  The only way, though, is to get in it and drive it as much as the dealer will allow.  Try every manouvre, take a friend/partner, get them to drive & try every manouvre so you can experience things from the passenger seat.  See if the dealer will allow you to have the car for a day or two - Vauxhall do, or at least did.

Good Luck

Re: CITRËON C3

A few local instructors used to have them, but changed them within a year, unfortunately they are instructors that I am chatty with, so I don't know why they changed to Micras, Minis etc.

Sorry

Re: CITRËON C3

I know this is ADI bit but would just like to say from learner point of view - I learnt in a Citroen C3 and found it lovely. I found it so easy to manovere etc, was a tiny bit higher up than some cars that made me feel more confident to start with. Didn't feel small to learn in but didn't feel too massive either. big_smile

The seat moved in every direction imaginable which was nice - apprently my instructor has only ever had 1 pupil that couldn't adjust the seat to be able to sit in a posistion to drive. smile

Sorry to post in ADI bit but just wondered if a learners point of view might be wanted lol tell me to go away if it wasn't wink

Thats an excellent post...and really helpfull info. Nice to get a learners prspective of this car because after all that is who is going to be driving it...Thankyou!
You are right it does feel bigger than it is...but it is actually 3 inches shorter than the Fiesta i believe!!

Its an idea that i am just 'playing with at the moment, but it seems to me that its good from both driver and passengers perspective...but i need to do some more homework on this one first.

Thanks for the comments so far...keep em coming...;-)

Re: CITRËON C3

I have a C3 that I teach in... in fact its the 3rd one I've had as I trade them in after 14 - 15 months.  I love them!!!!  I find them really comfortable to sit in all day (I suppose that depends on your height etc and I'm 5ft 2").  I have the 16 valve HDi SX and its nippy but economical with the fuel usage.

I too have only had 1 learner that I couldn't fit into the drivers seat ..... he was HUGE!! My learners like the fact that you sit up fairly high to drive them and the little window in the back door pillar makes reversing around the corners easy.

My first one was not that reliable the syncromesh went on 2nd and 3rd gear after 18,000 miles, my dealer is brill and they sorted very quickly under warranty, even paying the mechanics to work on Sat afternoon to finish it for me.  The others have been fine!

I would agree that the inside is a bit plasticy, and I use bluetack to stop the carpet above the duals flapping down but I love my pale blue plastic dashboard. The dealer programmes my cars computers as a driving school car which makes the steering a little more positive than normal and stops any chance of it overheating during manouvres.

Hope that helps,

Jocelyn

Re: CITRËON C3

Hello

I learnt in a Citreon C3 (Was a 52 Plate) and I used to like the car ever since my ADI got the car!

She did however have alot of problems, I particularly remember on lesson on a roundabout the engine just cut out (I didn't stall!), the car had to have a new compressor unit too but I had already passed by then. The C3 gives a very 'young' image and is a nice drive, I would hope that they have solved all the "teething" problems since.

Re: CITRËON C3

Rather oddly, i used ti dislike the C3, but on closer inspection and thinking of it as a instructors car...i see more and more advantages of having one.
This will be in the future of coarse, but i am thinking this is the way to go for me at least.
Your comments are really helpful and have helped immensely, I think this will be the way to go...eventually for me at least

Cheers everyone!!

ah - i was learning in an 04 plate one, instructor had never had a problem like that with it at all lol lol :lol:must have been sorted out as a teething problem.

down in my bit of country there aren't too many of them about so they are nice and distinctive too, think it is only really my ADI's school that use them in my local area lol

personally found it lovely though - gears used to go in fine etc, nice size of car - normal size car but didn't feel huge, but not small either, loved the fact its 5-door, when i had the odd lesson from school meant i could just put school stuff behind the chairs easily lol

Was learning in a 1.4SX and was nice, had some poke, put my foot down and it went :lol:got up to speed nice and promptly smile was fantastic, if i could have afforded one now/when i passed i would have considered buying one lol lol lol

Re: CITRËON C3

Yes they do seem to be holding their value... yikes....but they are nice cars, ive only seen one around these parts...infact he uses these forums, and has a lovely red one!!

The seats (drivers and passengers  big_smile) seem to adjust well as does the steering wheel, ive had a look around and i think it suits me just fine....but ive got a way to go yet, so im planning ahead  lol lol...passes the time...lol

Nothing like being prepared eh??

Re: CITRËON C3

knew an instructor who had one, found it to be unreliable & costly to repair - he promptly changed it for a Ford KA.

Re: CITRËON C3

My mother had one when they first came out... no END of problems with it...  sad It spent more time in the garage than at home...

BUT, I have to say - it was a great car to drive.  Her model was a diesel, a bit slow in response to the gas pedal (getting going), but I hope, that this like the other probs she had were only teething problems.  I know of an ADI down cambridge way who had a petrol version - who had none of the probs that Ma had with the diesel.   :?

MPG for the diesel however was mind blowing...

Would consider this car, looks quite 'cute' n groovy, it's excellent for man's though!  RRC never been so easy!!

BUT... I'd want it for a day or two (or five...) before I bought it to check it out!

Re: CITRËON C3

There did seem to be some problems with the 2002/02 version of this car....i believe that they have just given it a little 'face lift' inside  (so the dealer says)...i couldnt see that much had changed!
But if i were to go down the road of a C3 i would be looking at a 2004 onwards, diesel of coarse!  big_smile

I actually spotted a new kid on the block out and about in one today...so there is now a C3 in my area!! I cant afford a Mini, which is another great pupil puller and im not really taken with the Beetle.....around here every other car seems to be a Clio/Fieast or Corsa...I am just trying to find something that is different but good......saying that i dont think anyone has the New Micra??

Mmmmm......might investigate further....but i so like the C3!!  roll

Re: CITRËON C3

The one I learnt in was a 1.4SX also, the dual controls were in a nice position not stuck right out like in some cars for out of ours use!

The little make over also includes the rear light clusters too! which look snazzy!
