Re: Nice one!

On my Cactus which I had from new for 3 years, the heater would pump out warm air before I reached the end of my road! Never failed to. That was a 110 petrol engine.

In my current car it's just as efficient.

Re: MyCitreon App

Does the App do anything useful, worth having? Cheers Mike it can prompt you when mapping updates are available, give a bit of extra info about any faults / warnings, keeps an eye on servicing, tells you where you've parked, your average fuel consumption, a breakdown of trips by day, month etc with...

Re: Engine fault. Please have engine repaired.

I had the same issues, "have engine repaired" came up in the screen. It turned out to be the NOX sensor Code of (P2202). The Diagnostic cost £116.00, the sensor and ECU download was £58, total job with labour a horrendous price of £439.70. You were ripped off! £116 for plugging it into a computer -...

Re: Engine fault. Please have engine repaired.

I had this problem on my C4 Cactus. I had a roadside call out which put the car through a diagnostic check and there were no engine faults found. Under warranty, the car went back to the dealer. It was a faulty sensor unit. I was reassured and told it was ok to drive. New sensor unit was ordered an...

Re: Seats in Cactus 2 - differences between them

I think only the Flair model and above have the comfort seats.

In the Mk1 version, the leather seats were different (much more comfortable) than the fabric seats.

Re: Shuddering/Loss of Power

The 'metallic rattling' suggests pinking, which means either the plugs are faulty (happens a lot with modern engines) or the timing is out?

Re: Fallen out of Love with my Cactus

43,000 miles and £1000's and the bills are never ending. Bloody ridiculously expensive car to keep running. In the 4 years I have owned it, it has cost more to keep running than my Xantia, Xsara Picasso and C5 combined. My cheap service at 43,000 miles has cost another £1000. Even the new wiper bla...

Re: Test Drive Tomorrow

Do a test drive in the C3 Aircross too; bigger boot and flat access. I wish I had tried one, even if the Cactus has better suspension and seats... if I was after a new car I would consider the C3 Aircross more seriously having been with our Cactus for 6 months. We struggled with the camping equipme...

However, you can turn off the light after adjusting the display If you adjust the display brightness with the lights on, then you are adjusting the brightness for only when the lights are on...
