Hi,
I've just picked up my new 65reg yellow 1.2 feel cactus. i traded in a 60 reg c3 picasso diesel i had for 6 years.
I love the look of it with the tints and black wheels.

an eventful 1st day of ownership. in the evening started the car, nothing, click click.
i'm thinking am i missing anything with the start procedure.
popped the bonnet and the quick release +ve battery terminal was not clamped down so it was loose.
i clamped it down and charged the battery over night.
today the cars run sweet as a nut. not the start i wanted tho.

I’ll be coming from a 2014 14 C3 Picasso 1.6i VTi Exclusive EGS6 when my New Cactus 1.2 110 EAT6 Flair arrivies in March. I’ll sure miss my C3 Picasso though.

I’ve put just over 23,000 Miles on it and apart from wear and tear items it’s only needed a new back box as Citroën don’t do the straps separate but it wasn’t me paying for it so let them put a new back box on it.

the welding on those exhausts must be shocking. my mechanic welded all the exhaust brackets over time after they broke.

Hi! I've just bought the same model today, picking it up on Friday though. I think the colour is fabulous! The black and yellow really fit well together :D

i think the car triggered someone with yellowphobia.
went shopping returned to find one of the alloys spray painted green.

from my first day flat battery issue, i recharged it and it was ok for a couple of months.
then while shopping went to come home battery was dead.
got it started using a lithium battery booster i bought just in case.
mechanic tested the alternator that was charging but not enough. so new alternator fitted got that done on the warranty.
well 6 weeks later out shopping today car dead again. got it started again with the booster, went to halfords and got a new battery.
so new alternator and battery should have fixed the problems but if i have any more problems in the next few months its getting traded in.
