This documentary about the history of CitroŽn is now completed. :)

There are many pages for DS, 2CV and Traction, but I am not expert enough to differ between these models. Once they are ID'd, we should regroup similar models.

I've always wondered what the best Citroen to own is?
The USA never had much of a selection since it was mainly the 2CV and DS that were sold here, although the CX, SM and XM were also sold in very small numbers.
The one's I've always wanted to own are the GS and the XM Turbo.

I've driven 1980s 2CVs and Dyanes and they're absolutely brilliant fun, and surprisingly capable; I'd like to have a go in a GS one day.

Had several 1990s/2000s hire cars - Xantia was very comfortable and smooth apart from appallingly bad seats, Xsara Picasso very capable and comfortable but for some reason I never managed to like it, Xsara itself just instantly forgettable porridge. Saxo was quite lively but just a P106 in drag. Early C5 competent but a characterless blob - about as memorable as a Vectra but slightly smoother, and nothing like as enjoyable as a P406, which was a good'un to drive. Visa and AX were just cheap and nasty.

In my family we own two CitroŽns: my parents drive since some months a C4 Aircross and I drive a C3 II since two years. Previously we owned also a C8. My father was a CitroŽn enthusiast in his youth, he dreamed to drive a CX or an XM, but never had the chance to purchase one until now. Now I can define myself too as a CitroŽn enthusiast, I'm very happy of my car and I believe my next one will be a CitroŽn again. That's curious, because when I was a little child I was scared about CitroŽns, after having seen an XM moving up and down on its hydropneumatic suspensions, it seemed to me something too strange to be explained :D

The C3 is very enjoyable on the road, has got a wonderful engine (HDi 115), a funny and young appearance and a lot of qualities. A lot of friends, even some ones owning more expensive cars, are very attracted by my C3, mainly because it's a well-packed mix of style, driving pleasure and comfort (and in particular by the 'Zenith' panoramic roof). The Aircross is not a proper CitroŽn, but it's a very good SUV, in my opinion it lacks on interior appearance and comfort, but has got a great (Mitsubishi) engine, good materials and a cool exterior style.
I had experiences with other CitroŽns as passenger or driver. I remember the AX of a colleague of my mom's: noisy but roomy (I was very little, maybe nowadays I would have another feeling); a friend of mine's Saxo felt a well-built car, but a little too stiff; I've got some friends owning C2s and C3s and I can only confirm the impressions of my own one. I've driven in some Picassos, C5s, XMs and C6s (of family friends or taxis) and I verified that what they tell about large CitroŽn's comfort features is definitely true, and this impression has been later confirmed by owning for years a roomy C8 as main family car.

I've driven a 2002 CitroŽn Berlingo Multispace on and off for 4 years, and it's probably the most practical car I can think of. Decent performance from its 1.4 litre engine, good fuel economy, good handling, very spacious, good visibility, comfortable ride, and vast space in the back. It also looks good for a vehicle of its type.

The 2CV Charleston was VERY popular in my native Japan, and I drove/took care of a Dyane that belonged to a friend while he was abroad for a few months. I agree, very fun and charismatic cars.
I've been told that US-market Citroens are generally pretty terrible, however, and to avoid buying them. Even if the condition is showroom amazing, the repairs and replacement parts are rare and expensive.

I agree with you... nice shape.
I liked the Ford Tourneo Courier also...

I remember the XM my father had for two years (as company car), I really like that car.
He also liked it, as well as the two DS he had as first cars (when they were common and cheap old cars in the early 70s)

Funnily, the last car I owned was a CitroŽn (of a rare kind: GS-matic, third hand, subject to electrical leaks).

Is that the same as a GS with C-Matic?

DidierF FR

2015-09-19 23:41

ErÖ tore-40, yes, maybe, GS C-Matic, probably, I suppose, you must be right. IÖ I can't remember. Anyway, the coppers deprived me of its sweet attentions.

Smooth ride, comfy, using only 2nd and 3rd or even 3rd alone, if carefully driven. But without a well functioning charging system you would be stuck - no way to bump start it. And with the extra relays and switches (needed for 'disengaging') vs a manual 'box you would easily run into trouble.

(A little off-topic nostalgia)

I smile, Tore, while reading you because you're really spot on, on every detail! Including the foolish attempt to "bump start" it, that was suggested and engineered by a friend of mineÖ teacher in technology! (It was actually a cool car, when functionning.)
