Citroen C5 2nd gen. experiences

In the German market Citroen C5 2nd gen. has been available since 2008 as a four-door sedan or station wagon. The Citroën C5 shares technical functions with its twins Citroën C6 and Peugeot 508. Unlike its predecessors, it is called Tourer instead of Break, the interior is of better quality, the exterior design is sharper and the workmanship itself is better. Although it is a new car, it still contains some functions of the older C5 model: a great diesel engine, rich equipment and top comfort. There is a realistic alternative on the market Ford Mondeo i Opel Insigniai. Can be ordered as desired with conventional suspension or typical Citroën hydropneumatics - steel springs have been replaced with fluid-filled suspension which allows for a very high level of comfort and is responsible for 'floating' the car on rough terrain. Two four-cylinder gasoline engines with 120 hp and 156 hp are available, three four-cylinder diesel engines with 112 hp, 140 hp and 204 hp, and from 2012, a six-cylinder 3.0 engine with 241 hp.
The standard equipment includes seven airbags: front and side for the head and an airbag for the driver's knees, ABS, ASR and stability control. Three trim levels are available: SX (since 2009 Changed to VTR), VTR + and Exclusive. For safety, the car won the highest score in the Euro NCAP crash test.
Steering, front axle and manual transmission problems are common. With 1.6 HDi engines, turbocharger errors often occur.
Particulate filter diesel engines used only for short-haul trips often face insufficient filter regeneration.
Electronics have faults with electric windows, various safety lamps and air pressure sensors. Corrosion most commonly occurs on load-bearing parts and the braking system.
The consumption of a four-cylinder petrol engine is about 8l / 100km, while the consumption of a six-cylinder engine is 10l / 100km. Diesel consumes about 7 l / 100km, while with the strongest diesel 2.7 and 3.0 we can expect 2 l more.
