    Default Citroen C5 Gold Coast mechanic

    In the process of procuring a C5 not sure which year yet possibly from 2005 to 2009. Can anyone recommend a reputable service person on the Gold Coast area. I did hear of one around Burleigh Heads but have lost the information. I presume a Peugeot mechanic should be able to service it ??

    Any advice of the engine I should look for 2.0 diesel 2.7 diesel or the 3.0 V6 petrol ???


    Your help is appreciated

    The diesel motors are also found in some Fords, and all the engines are in some Peugeots which may help if you can't find a Cit specific man.

    Your year range spans two quite different cars - I would get the later improved X7 version if I were you. For all round use I think the 2 litre 4 cyl diesel is the way to go. Plenty of oomph (ie lots of torque), and easier to service than the V6 engines. The Japanese 6 speed auto box is a beauty and more reliable than earlier 4 speeds.

    If you go for newer cars, check whether you are getting hydraulics or sprung suspension. Eg, Comforts are hydraulic, Attractions ride on steel.

    PS David S has put up things to look for for the earlier model, if memory serves.

    Although I haven't used this guy personally, he has come highly recommended. A french mechanic who apparently knows Citroen and Peugeot very well. Will give him a go the next time I need to see a mechanic and will report back. Please report if you use him first and let me know your experience.
