My 2007 C5 (Hdi-2Ltr twinturbo Diesel) has 48 thou Km on the clock. An excellent vehicle purchased new and loved by the family. Problems-we have some. Electrics seem to be a bit tempremental and the reversing lights simply do not work ($2500 Au. to replace the chasis computer). Towing and general usage make the C5 (Diesel) stand out. I have owned many different vehicles over the years but the C5 is superior to all (including two other 'top of range' vehicles). Complaints? Yes- Citroen is very slow to accept responsibilty for warranty claims and in Australia it can take up to four months to get a response. The dealership I have is first class and responsive to any concerns. This helps a lot with the vehicle.

2004 vintage 2-litre HDi 110 hp VTR extremely capable and useful vehicle and a joy to drive, particularly compared to its Xantia 1.9 TD predecessor. Internal trim a little spartan but this does not affect comfort in use. I have used car on 8 trips to S. central France as well as many in UK, and its ease when heavily loaded is very welcome. Although the engine has now been superseded by the 1.6 110 hp with even better emission figures, I have still averaged better than 47 mpg on long trips loaded to the gunwales - sometimes well in excess of the rated load. The factors which deny it a 10/10 score are (i) the rear brake calipers exhibit the same design shortcomings as those on the Xantia, needing creative work to straighten them out after 3 years, (ii) the vulnerability of the electrics to seriously wet conditions - like N.Europe - and (iii) the rate at which it wears front tyres. It would not be fair however to blame this car for the points on my licence.
Have owned C5 2.2HDi SX Estate for 7 years now purchased new. The most comfortable and reliable car I have ever owned. An absolute pleasure to drive especially with the Hydroactive suspension. Although this model is now a little dated in its style (2002) but the new versions are even nicer.
I am a true Citroen fan (and my wife has the Citroen C-Crosser) which I do get to drive occasionally. Citroen are not only up there with the rest but up there with the best !
