Managed to get to holiday destination about 120 miles from home, took car to local garage, diagnostic result show faulty valve, mechanic said approx. £800 to repair but could try and drive it home?Although car is around 10 years old its only done a genuine 32,000 miles, I bought it on the fact it was low mileage, should this be happening to such a low mileage engine, have I got any justification to complain to Citroen, I have had car approx. two and a half years, get it serviced regularly, mileage was 15,000 when I bought it.

In my opinion , absolutely no chance of getting any claim against Citroen or any other manufacturer with a vehicle of that age , despite low mileage .

Only you can decide if it's worth spending that amount of money on a old car.
