20,500 km in 10 months with a Citroen C3: Here's my experience

Only issue I faced with car are door rattles, before 2nd service. It got fixed, re-appeared when nearing 3rd service. Got it fixed again.

BHPian antonylejos recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

I also own a Citro├źn C3 NA and have completed 20,500 kilometers in 10 months. I've availed all three of the free services, and I have no complaints; I'm simply happy with it.

I am happy with both car and service.

Only issue I faced with car are door rattle , before 2nd service. It got fixed, re-appeared when nearing 3rd service. Got it fixed again.

I would recommend the C3 for the following categories of people:

  • Those who drive frequently.
  • Those who derive enjoyment from driving.
  • Your budget is in C3 range (below 10 lacs)
  • You plan to purchase a car for the sheer pleasure of driving rather than to show off
  • You primarily reside in tier-1 and tier-2 cities where Citro├źn has a presence. If you happen to embark on long drives to other locations and encounter car issues, you can afford financially to bring their car back to the service center, even if it's some distance away.
  • You typically make decisions independently and do their own research, rather than following the crowd.

I would not recommend the C3 for the following types of people:

  • If the nearest service center is a considerable distance away.
  • You are buying a car just for your everyday chores and you do not want to enjoy driving
  • If you don't drive frequently and plan to keep car longer than 15 years with less kilometers on odo. (This point is added because, of less sales if company quits in another 10 years you may be impacted)
  • You are concerned about your friends making fun of your car for not having auto-on headlamps, when they conveniently turn on their home headlights manually.
  • If you tend to follow popular trends and decisions made by the majority.
