Comfortable .. with drawbacks

Probably the most comfortable car I've ever owned and lovely to drive. I enjoyed this car from day one with it's smooth ride, good performance and excellent mpg. That is until after 2.5 years and at 19,000 miles I started to get Diesel Particulate Filter problems. At 20,000 miles my local Citroen dealer fitted a new DP filter (under warranty) but the problems continued withe the new DPF blocking just 2 weeks after fitting. The car went into 'limp home' mode with a top speed of 25mph and no acceleration. The dealer carried out a forced regeneration but was unable to offer a lasting solution. The problems persisted for another 3 months with many days off the road and unable to drive the car and I finally got rid of the car, trading it in just last week. What a relief! No more warning lights and worries! My advice to you if you are thinking of buying one - opt for a petrol-engined model and avoid the diesels with the 1.6HDi engines which in my experience are troublesome. Citroen do not appear to have perfected the technology required for trouble-free motoring with DPF's on these diesel engines.
