How reliable are Citroën cars?
Citroën cars are reliable - or so the company's reputation would have you believe. But does the reality live up to the expectation?
Every year, we run an annual car survey where tens of thousands of people tell us about their current car and how reliable it is. Based on feedback from current Citroën owners, we have reliability data for new cars aged up to three years old, and also cars aged between three and eight years old.
