    Default More wrecks- Citroen & Renault

    Two more wrecks have just come in. Both will be wrecked, the 19 could be saved but why would you.

    The C5 is a V6 exclusive

    Sorry Richo its not there.

    We got it from another wrecker who doesn't do Cits, but a few parts are already gone. I have no info on it except that it has light front damage but the engine is seized. It has oil and water, I looked under it (to see if the under tray was there) and the sump hasn't been smashed so can't explain why its seized. Its only done 101,000km

    umm well for conventional suspension (not hydraulic) thats pretty good too. I also like the engine. Compared to the 1.8 306, the 1.7 R19 is really nice and revvy!

    And thats about all I like about them!

    I just used it for a delivery. Had to take a Scenic engine all the way to Hallam, (exact opposite side of Melbourne). Great little car, chuck a dirty greasy engine in the back, don't care how much grease stains it gets and away we go. Comfort and space and don't care factor.

    There Shane thats 3 positives.

    Interesting, the few I've driven felt flat as a tack and quite gutless. The only thing I really disliked about them was the steering, it must have been about 857 turns lock to lock. The little car felt like a barge around here with all the round-a-bouts. Having to spin the wheel so much highlighted the understeer too. Bloody good aerobic workout too drive though
