If you read my reply correctly i said DS4 in passing, and then referred to my friends DS3 in much more detail as a practical owner and the 6 months nightmare she had trying to sell it, after all the problems.......?
Hers was on PCP and she faced a 7k bill at the end of 3 yrs, or hope things would stabilise in the 3rd and not loose on it much come swap over.
I just don't think your reading things thorough, before jumping on the band wagon, there are many many DS3's for sale, and quite a few DS4's, both my friends who owned Citroen's, don't anymore!

Roxy, i did not mean to invade your thread, sorry, but i get sick of people stick bashing one person who says something with factual practical first hand knowledge of a specific vehicle, if they were just my own thoughts on Citroen i would not have bothered as i have never owned one and am not qualified to.. But We are talking about 2 people who owned Citroen's, one of them a 61 plate DS3 in blue, when i read the thread out she was like, no no no no.. Tell her to run, lol !! But that was her experience i guess, you make your own of it, and i wish you all the best.

Well i thought the best information was from that of an actual owner of ...??!! Yea i used to be in sales too, and your bashing here has put said new ford owner off joining the FOC, I know won’t bother from now on.




No worries at all thanks for sharing your information

I didn't mean to put you off and I wasn't bashing you it just seemed like misinformed information. A ds3 really shouldn't be going from 21k to less than half within a year. A ds3 is actually supposed to hold approximately 40% of its new value as trade in after three years (that's an industry forecast of course they've not quite been out 3 years yet). If your were talking about citroen dealers you'd have a good point apart from real main dealers (like citroen Manchester that's actually owned by peugeot citroen themselves like robins and day) the citroen dealers aren't monitored thoroughly enough. I this weekend went looking at the c3 at a dealership which is a proper citroen garage but not owned by citroen and there were 5 c3s all listed as vtis both on the forecourt and online but a check of the plates and citroen systems found that 4 were actually the 1.4 8v (horrid engine) and the cheapest was actually the only VTi. They were a rubbish drive so I've bought a corsa instead but point still stands.

I really did not intend to put you off I was actually trying to help the DS3 is a good car it's well made, especially for a French car.

In my opinion if she was offered so little after a year then its the dealer not the car. If you don't mind me asking how did she manage to pay 21k for a DS3 to begin with a year ago? The only spec that's that expensive is the prestige and it really doesn't have anything that justifies the price and the racing wasn't available on pcp then.

Welcome back, think you should get your profile pic changed pretty sharpish, that fire damaged rear end is a little upsetting. What ford have you got now? What happened to the DS3?

Yeah I'm only on my phone ATM but will get it changed ASAP :-) I didn't get a ds3 in the end I decided against it as I heard so many bad reviews about them... I've now got a ford focus titanium 1.6 after having an Astra for the last year (it was a crappy runaround) so glad to have got rid of it im back from the darkside :-)

I had an Astra for 4 long years and was so glad to get my Fiesta. Do not miss the Astra at all!
