We have had a lot of problems with our C3 1.4 desire.
The best way to describe it is as an "Intermittent electrical fault".
The car keeps stalling, the speedo stops working, power steering stops
working as does the rear wash wipe.
We have had it back to the dealer eight times since we bought it from new 14
months ago, and they keep telling us they have fixed the fault with a new
"Semi-intelligent fuse box" "Software upgrades" and most recently they have
"Replaced all injectors".
Has anybody else had similar experiences? I'd be very interested to hear
from you if you have.
(remove "nospam" to e-mail!!)
Sounds like the usual main dealer "tell the customer any old bollocks" to
Might be worth a trawl through the archives on google, I'm not a C3 man
myself but there have been a few threads in the past.
Incidentally, you should have had a brand new replacement by now - 14 months
is way too long to suffer. Get your local trading standards bod on the
blower and see what they can do.
C3 has many electrical probs. My wife's C3 cuts out at junctions. Not had
the other faults though. Wiper linkage snapped though and it took 3 weeks to
get a new one. Citroen had no stock in UK or France we were told. BBC
Watchdog did a big thing on C3 electrical probs, it is a common fault.
