Default Citroen C4 II Hatch 1.2T

Hi guys,
this forum has been rather quiet.
Anyway, I just upgraded from the 2007 C4 to a 2016 C4 II. My first car with turbo.
Bought second-hand.
Condition not too bad. Only some cosmetics defects.
Some questions for C4 II owners.
What is the engine oil type for this model?
is it normal for the front rims to vibrate when idling?
Need any special attention to the turbo in the car?
Thanks in Advance.

Hello. Nope. The rim should not vibrate.

Happy driving

Default Citroen C4 1.2A Puretech

Its not a very big secret that a lot of AD dont do the work u pay for
Its a bigger secret that the mechs inside and the advisors actually kope the parts u paid to change n actually sell outside



And this happens in almost all the ad

If u feel unhappy abt having to service there and yet pay to keep the wty and yet they skip
Some work and use inferior oil
By all means ditch the warranty n do outside
I never even did any service for my 3 previous citroens under warranty at agent

This may not be true. Why not challenge the service advisor who told you this to give you a black & white letter stating this information that he/her gave you.

Dun be surprise he/she does not dare to give you such a letter.

Happy motoring

Come to think of it, I agree with furry.
It doesn't makes sense to anyone when you have to pay the servicing to get warranty for your car. I almost forget that some missing parts when I sent my first citroen in and I ditched them b4 .
Now they quote me $1650 after 20% discount for 4 servicing. The major servicing in the package only replaces spark plugs, the minor are engine oil and oil filter. Come on, we are not newbie drivers to get our throat cut like that plus they want to skin us some more..
They told me that warranty goes together with the chassis but free servicing binds to the owner. What crap? Non transferable!
Citroen cars are nice to drive but it's dealer is killing the vibes.

Interesting. Previously when I buy servicing package from them. They told me it can be transfer to the next owner if I sell the car. Seems like they have shifted their goal post to exactly the same as autofrance policy..
