Unjustly criticised by motoring press

Contrary to the belief of the motoring press, not all of us want to be driving a car that feels like a sports car with a hard ride. The C4 drives very softly much like a Golf but because it is softly sprung does thud a little occasionally over large potholes. This is a price worth paying. I paid 14 grand for my new top of the range C4 and the equivalent Golf was 18.5 grand. The Golf's price is based on perception of better quality which is simply not true.
If you are heading for 70 years old, this is a great car to drive. It is smooth and refined, bettered by only the new C3 hatchback that will be my next car.
The only glitch I have had was a failed injector on one of the spark plugs but this was replaced quickly under guarantee by the dealer.
Unfortunately , Citroen Uk has now lost the plot. They have decided to put 17" wheels on the top spec new C4 cars which is absolutely stupid on a car designed for ride comfort. Ride comfort is Citroen's only real selling point and they have destroyed that with this screw up. Their CEO should consider a career change.
