Citroen rule the roads

published

2008 1.6 manual TD perfection. A small roomy vehicle that drives so nicely. Well balanced on the road. Great acceleration too. Really enjoy its styling and dynamics. AM planning on upgrading the stereo system with one from Aliexpress.

Purchased in June 2018 for $5,000.00.

Lovee

Such a good little car! Beautiful leather interior and great fuel costs. Love the digital speedo and automatic headlights and wipers, so handy.
Only bad thing would be the electronic seat controllers for the driver seat as you don't get many options on how you want your seat and how close to the steering wheel.

C4 has a whole lot more.

published

The value is truly good.Very comfortable and very safe.This little french car is a nice little car with a great sense of security.Not much more that you could ask for...The handling is so enjoyable and the lovely noise from the exhaust is beautiful.The automatic transmission could do with a 5th gear,but otherwise fine.

Little Beauty

published

I loved this car and the service from Citroen, it was a 2008 2lt Diesel with all the options and it served me well over the years. I only had one problem that was a a major hassle but could have been avoided which was the air conditioning. The drain pipe blocked up flowing water back into cabin. Otherwise, I didn't have any other problems and rarely opened the bonnet.
1200 kms country and 600 city driving is the best fuel economy I have ever had from any car.
The only down side was the quality wasn't up to the price and after 8 years started to show it age and would require some major servicing. The suspension is a tad hard but otherwise great car. Pity the new ones look like a Toyota copy.

very happy with my new 2nd hand C4

published

Hi, I purchased a 2006 C4 Hatch , 1.6ltr Turbo Diesel, I reckon its a bloody Beauty. I've done 300km and only just nearly used 1/4 tank of fuel, distance to empty still says 720km. That's absolutely ridiculous just how economical it is. WOW. can anyone tell me what the Turbo boost is set on as standard, and as its a max 15lb boost turbo where or how I can up the boost a little please, is it done via the computer or is it a manual adjustment by turning a nut as some turbo's are adjusted by...

Love this car

published

Bought secondhand in 8/15 - 2008 model. Love this car. I get 1200km to a tank on the open road and 900km to a tank around town. Cost of service and parts is no more expensive than the norm. Great car and very economical. Highly recommend as also has good safety rating.

Nothing can be better than this!!

published

Used same platform with japanese car Mitsubishi ASX but different exterior. (this can be lower maintenance fee) Very stylish and lots of extra features such as 18" alloy wheels, rear view camera, bluetooth and so on. It can be converted to four wheel drive when driving on off road by simply turn on "lock mode". Lots of fun with modern style design.
Stylish, inexpensive

Contains several features which will be in most cars five years from now (auto wipers, auto headlights, directional headlights, fixed centre steering wheel, integrated bluetooth phone).
Amazing and effective use of technology. Good performance, precise handling
Sensitive brakes, vague gearshift

A car with panache!

published

Bought the vechile new and have just traded it on a new c4 e hdi exclusive.
The car performed flawlessly having achieved 100,000kms in just under 3 years. It never let me down and was a real pleasure to drive, comfortable and quiet on the road. Having previously owned Mazda, Honda and Saab in recent times the quite different styling combined with the wonderful fixed hub wheel and other technology related items gave me much pleasure. The servicing was not expensive and occuring at every 30,000 miles made ownership no hassle. The dealer was always helpful and provided loan cars during servicing.
Reliable,comfortable, real style, cheap to operate and service
Noisy rear suspension on rough roads

A dream to drive and own!

published

We have the 5 door hatch and it is a dream to drive!
It has all the technologies you could imagine, I have driven SAAB's in the past and this beats them!
There is an amazing amount of space in the cabin, actually it appears to be larger interior than our old ford Falcon AU - go figure!
Comfort is superb and so is fuel economy.
Price, features, technology, ride, styling and not to mention the glass roof!

fuse or plain broken

thanks for that, I believe that a fuse can be ruled out [my belief] because as I read the list of fuses they support multi functions and only this screen is non functional,does not even light up

Hi, I bought a second hand 2008 Citroen C4 1.6 HDi recently, 2 months now. Im having a new troubles with it:
I had battery failure week ago, car didn't start. So I had replaced the battery. Since then the stereo isn't working. I can only connect my phone via bluetooth but its only for calls. I can see power is coming to the stereo but in its menu the music section is grayed out. Can anyone please advice what to do?

Try to take the stereo fuse out and replug it back so, it reboots it. The fuse is in the glovebox. This is not a fault with the stereo unit. As the Bluetooth is goverened by the stereo unit, this will fix that too. Try also to pair your bluetooth as that could solve your bluetooth problems.
