Advantages: silent, easy manuveaure, comfortable
Disadvantages: too light, cheap exhaustion pipe, sucks to much fuel
Im 20 years old, and i started driving 3 years ago (as my first car) a tiny fiat uno 89. After it perished one day, I looked through and decided to buy a citroen c3, not just for what the car is, but also because of its good relevant price.
To be honest im far too happy with my c3. Its quite a car! If you look at it from the outside, you can see how many perspectives this car has. Its not just only a usual little car, but it does also have a sportish shape, and a very convinient young look!
Mainly, i preffer 3 door cars, but ive got used to this 5 door little baby. It does make things much easier!
The motor is simply amazing. My c3 is a 1.4 75 gasoline injection, and it works far to fine. One of the greatest things the c3 has is how much it sounds.... its silent! you cant even hear the motor on... sometimes you even wonder if its actually on or not. Even though this is a pleasure, it does have an inconvinience. You have to get used to changing gears not by listening to the motor, but guessing the speed if you are not in the mood of looking ever 5 to 10 seconds the actual speed and motor revolution.
The outside of the car may have one big little annoyance. The cars mouth goes too low. Its as if it was tunned. You have to take care everytime you go through any possible bump, since you may hit the low of the car.
The inside is extremely comfortable. It has arm rests at both sides, that you really appriciate them once you start using them (little but huge detail!). Seats are movable in all ways (just as the stearing wheel)....
Maybe the exhastion pipe isnt as good as it should be for such car. Brand new car needs a brand new exhaustion pipe model... and not the typical old renault R5 pipe.... it does make a difference after a few hours driving.
The stearing wheel is maybe too soft. When driving fast you really have to get hold on it, as it may get lose at any point, specially if passing a bus or a truc
There isnt that mucn to say other than everybody else has mentioned, but its quite a good car, and you really apriciate driving it. Good for all ages and no sex discrimination.... a unisex car doesnt matter from were you look at.
enjoy the ride.
