Had a problem with rear window not coming back up but apart from that no issues. Citroen dealership is rubbish however. Stacks of equipment: colour reversing camera, music hard drive, dvd player being the highlights as standard for this model. Great styling compared to mitsubishi and pegeout cousins.

I think this is a fantastic car however the few problems I have had have been costly. I bought my car with 50,000 miles on the clock and in the last 4 years we've put another 50,000 on it. As usual the clutch slips like a greasy sailor. The automatic headlight adjuster disintegrated (possibly made from Bassets Liquorice). £252 from main dealer. I find that the car eats front tyres like it's going out of fashion (over £100 a piece). I'm now having gearbox problems, possible selector or synchromesh issues. All said though, if I won the lottery, I'd buy another one. Fabulous car for a family of four.

Disapointed with the reliability the citroen 2.2 diesel lump in what is a mitsibushi outlander - the clutch started slipping at 28k miles (had to have new clutch citroen; wouldn't do it under warrenty), fuel additive tank split (warrenty), injector pipe came adrift (warrenty)causing it to break down. Additionally it did not like the really cold weather -13 degrees celsius, i'm 99% certain the diesel was gelling up either in the filter or the small fuel cooling radiator underneath the car - or was it the asda diesel fuel to blame? The overall performance of the engines is very good but i'd like to see a bit better economy - currently averaging approx 36 mpg travelling 70 miles a day on a & b roads which are failrly clear.

I love my c-crosser it is the best car i have ever owned. It is versatile, practical, powerful, handles superbly and most importantly, it turns heads with it's stylish looks and the uniqueness of there not being many around.

I loved my C-Crosser - ideal for family of 7! Fully loaded on summer and skiing holidays with a roof-box, it was so reliable. But then it needed a new clutch at 60,000 miles (its now done 90,000 ish) and I write with sad news just having returned to the UK in two hire cars. The gearbox gave out on the motorway in France and we await its re-patriation. We are told that it is a write-off due to the cost of replacing the gearbox and will be sad to scrap it. However, we have read about C-Crosser clutch and gearbox problems due to the clutch/gearbox being unable to cope with the engine ... such a shame!
