    Default Citroen C5

    Just returned from Ireland for work where for 3 days and 800k's I was driving one of the above.
    As it had no model insignia or engine size shown on it all I can tell you was that it was a diesel and red.
    Now, I can honestly say it was the most uncomfortable car I have ever drived. The seat base is at the wrong angle and unadjustable, the seat back adjusts through a lever and not a wheel meaning adjustments are haphazard at best and the lumbar support doesn't.
    Build quality seemed OK, the dash has a nice layout but half of it is invisible as the steering wheel rims blocks it and there is way too much elecrtonics where simple dials would do.
    The interior plastics on the dash are made of the wrong stuff.
    By that I mean that the plastics on the lids of the storage boxes show up every fingerprint as they are satin finish. Who's idea was that?

    Now the worst point, the ride. Mine had standard suspension. Awful.
    Floaty and wallowy of typical Irish roads but still allowed sharp ridges and potholes to crash through the steering wheel. I can never remember driving a car where I hit my head a few times on the door opening when going over a bump, they wallow and float that much.
    No space in the rear either and the engine was quite gutless.

    Plus points? It looked really smart from a distance!!
