Manufacturing cars since 1919 – starting with the release of their A-Type – Citroen has more than earned its place in the motor industry as a major player. And whatever model you’re driving, you can be confident of enjoying a great time on the road no matter what the weather decides to do. Known for the innovations they bring to the motoring world, such as the floating engine concept, we can safely say you’re in good hands with the right Citroen.
If you’re planning on driving your Citroen longer than the manufacturer warranty, you could save yourself time and money by taking out a warranty with MotorEasy. Our plans help with parts, labour and diagnostic costs for the full duration of the warranty. Ensuring you have the proper coverage in place is one of the easiest things a motorist can do to safeguard their car; you can count on MotorEasy to provide everything needed for your complete peace of mind.
Why Do I Need A Warranty For My Citroen?
Our warranties are designed to offer the best combination of cover and value, delivering many features that aren’t available with a Citroen manufacturer warranty. Our plans cover:
- Failures identified during MOTs and servicing
- Wear and tear – a feature not present in a standard Citroen manufacturer warranty
- Consequential damage as standard, meaning repairs or replacements are covered when directly impacted by a failure
- Failures caused by overheating
- Air conditioning problems
Citroen Reliability: A MotorEasy Study
The MotorEasy Reliability Index measures the dependability of a car, as an average of the frequency and cost of repairs for over 1,200 models. It reveals some of the hidden costs of ownership, as well as the likelihood of something going wrong. Each model is given a reliability score ranging from -100 (red), for a high frequency and/or high cost of repair, through to +100 (green), where there is a low frequency and cost of repair.
The index also includes model-specific data on:
- The typical repairs needed for each model, including the percentage of claims for engine, gearbox, electrical system, suspension, braking system and fuel system repairs.
- The average cost for each of the above types of repairs
