Citroen C4 Sedan

We have a Citroen anniversary — drove 100 000 km. Not that much, but decent. Actually, on anniversaries it is accepted to speak only good, but we’ll be honest. First, remember the main fault for 13,000 km, passed after the preceding detailed account and calculate costs. And then let us sum it up.
The maintenance costs of the car during these 13 000 km a fair share was the payment of gasoline. The average consumption is growing significantly in the winter and in urban traffic, and the last time the car outside the city and rarely traveled far.
On the 91st a thousand burned for the third pump. The average lifespan is only 30 000 km, the cost of replacing more than 13 000 rubles. You can put the exclamation point — but to what end?
It happened again suddenly, this time when the engine is in the Parking lot (well, not in the middle of the Avenue). Neither I nor the service men, there is no rational explanation of the phenomenon. As the breakdown of the valve valve cover (the fault manifested itself noticeable whistle at idle), could increase the pressure of blow-by gases and, as a result, oil leakage.
The failure of the high pressure pump, oxygen sensor, and especially the failure of the gasket of the oil filter housing is clearly abnormal with this mileage. And require tangible costs.The failure of the high pressure pump, oxygen sensor, and especially the failure of the gasket of the oil filter housing is clearly abnormal with this mileage.

One of the most complex and wasteful operations was the replacement of the timing chain with all the associated components.

Rear shocks fail with an unenviable regularity. I think the primary reason — the structural congestion of the stern of the vehicle.Rear shocks fail with an unenviable regularity. I think the primary reason — the structural congestion of the stern of the vehicle.
To break the valve on a modern car is somehow not comme Il faut. Especially in French. And because — 8800 roubles.
But the replacement of the corrugated part of the exhaust system — the procedure predictable. In Moscow there are firms that do it for half an hour and take the divine 3000 rubles.
The failure of two ignition modules — on the contrary, nonsense. Experienced repairmen say that 90 000 km of normal mileage to replace them. Why? Nobody knows.
The mileage is about 90,000 km, replaced front strut and stabilizer link. Podmazochnye rack leaking is not much and could still walk but I decided not to delay. And a rack of the stabilizer appears to have departed all that they are supposed to.
Then touched the brakes: the second set of pads lasts 40 000 km (first 50,000 miles) wheels — 90 000 km (both front and rear). When overhauling the brakes managed to save fine. HUNDRED change the rear discs complete with bearings hubs, the pair is worth over 16 thousand, and we bought the discs for 6000 rubles and moved the bearings from worn out. But to suggest doing so only in the presence of normal press. Armed with a hammer and a vise, nothing work.
An unpleasant story out of the tank. In the recent careless replacement fuel pump plastic surface of the tank was deformed. Finally this became clear when the warranty period of work performed on service has expired. And to prove anything in this case, it is hardly possible. To replace bought a used tank in just 5000 rubles (new is 49 thousand). Work on replacing simple — about an hour.
The corrugation in the exhaust system it is better to replace before it completely falls apart. Good professionals do it quickly and cheaply.The corrugation in the exhaust system it is better to replace before it completely falls apart. Good professionals do it quickly and cheaply.
They say the failure of the ignition modules when you run for 80,000 km — norm. I think it’s savagery.They say the failure of the ignition modules when you run for 80,000 km — norm. I think it’s savagery.
6 years and 100,000 km
The main findings of over 100 thousand kilometers. Body spacious, comfortable. Even where the paint is chipped, – the slightest trace of corrosion. The machine has a quite marketable. The salon, in my opinion, very cute and decorated well: still nothing creaks, not itchy, not rattles.
The most problematic node of the Citroen — 150‑HP turbo. A brief but mournful list is replaced by two timing chain with a bunch of related parts, valve seals, fuel high-pressure pump, lambda probe, three fuel pump gasket oil filter housing, two of the ignition module. Not bad, huh? It is said that after 2015, the 150‑horsepower engine got rid of almost all problems. I would like to believe, but their own positive experience not have.
To transmission no complaints. 60 000 km changed the oil in the automatic six-speed box. Manual does not require it, but no box oil change still didn’t hurt. Machine works still fine. CV joints — also, the benefit of the anthers intact.
After replacing the oil caps zhor oil stopped. I hope for a long time.After replacing the oil caps zhor oil stopped. I hope for a long time.
Suspension is very good: provides a good balance of comfort and handling. Front changed one ball joint on the mileage is about 30,000 km — it was like a marriage. Plus front strut and stabilizer link. And behind is the third set of shock absorbers. The point is probably that the feed car is structurally overloaded. And we regularly went to Citroen for a long distance with a heavy load. Sometimes — five of them, filling all available space in bags and suitcases.
The brakes are working fine. The efficiency and ease of management — no complaints. Replacement pad 40 000-50 000 km, mostly city mileage and drives through 90 000 km is a good result.
I’d like to make my next car was a Citroen? Another engine — Yes! I really like the disposition of the 150‑strong motor. For such dynamics, I’m even willing to accept the high fuel consumption — an average of about 11 l/100 km, especially in The highway mode at speeds about 100 km/h, the consumption is little more than 7 liters per hundred. But with so many serious and costly malfunction — thank you!
The engine then brought the Citroen to a fairly high level of operating costs — almost 7 rubles per kilometer. The Peugeot 308 that I drove to the Citroen more than 100 000 km, the motor was the same, but atmospheric, with 120 HP similar to the current 115‑strong. So that engine was not the tenth part of the faults of the 150‑strong. Of course, the motor made the car sluggish, but the reliability, as experience shows, is more important than dynamics.
If you do not talk about the engine, I sedan Citroen C4 suits almost everything. And while we continue to ride and hope. Like everything that could break, already broke. Or does it?
