What's the 2013 Citroen C3 like?

My daughter is thinking of buying a 2013 C3 1.4 hdi connected. Only 47000 kms very clean car inside and out. Is there anything specific I should look out for.?

Hi Tom,

That generation of Citroen C4 doesn’t have the greatest reliability record, with gearbox and electrical issues being the most oft-reported complaints. Check everything electrical on it works properly, especially the ratio, and that it goes through the gears smoothly. Check for excessive black or, worse, white smoke from the exhaust, during cold start-up and under hard acceleration on a test drive, as they might be indicative of turbo and/or diesel particulate filter problems.
