    Default Reliability of PSA Diesel engines

    This analysis applies to

    CitroŽn C3 II, C3 Picasso, DS3, C4 II, DS4, C4 Picasso I et II, C4 Aircross, C5 II, DS5 and Berlingo II.
    Peugeot 207+, 207 CC, 208, 2008, 308 I et II, 3008, 4008, 508, 5008 and Partner II.
    as well as

    Ford Fiesta V, Focus III, Mondeo III, C-MAX II, S-MAX and Galaxy II


    Mazda 2 II,3 II and 5 II

    read it (in French) at
    Fiabilitť CitroŽn/Peugeot. Le bloc 1.6 HDi 8 soupapes est-il fiable ? - L'argus

    It also leads you to a similar report on the 1.4 litre
    and you can access reliablity reports on all the PSA and Renault models

    Argus are the equivalent of the Red Book and Glass's Guide in France

    Don't remind me!


    Sadly, much of that information here is not dissipated or responded to, in a constructive way. It all becomes grist for the "French cars are unreliable" mantra.

    Thanks Gerry, that was a good read. The gripe is with the 1.6 HDI.

    I looked up the current C5 at Dossier Qualitť / Fiabilitť CitroŽn C5 II. The complaints are minor and mostly pre-2010, except for 1.6 HDI manuals, which we don't get here. In fact the reviewers like the 2.0 HDI models.
