Citroen is back in South Africa with 3 new models!
Probably one of the saddest motor manufacturer exits from South Africa in 2016 was the amazing and stylish Citroen, French motoring flair at its finest! Now you may have scoffed and said “Toodles” but, before you turn your back and walk away…
Citroen South Africa has returned with the C3, the C3 Aircross and C5 Aircross. These new models are sold with a 5 years / 100,000km service plan and warranty. Once these have expired you can get an aftermarket service plans and extended warranty from Warranty Extender.
Just think about all the amazing contributions that Citroen has made over the last century. Yes, it’s been a long time – Citroen was founded in 1919.
Citroen has bought us so many amazing motoring firsts: pneumatic suspension, disc brakes, a mass produced front wheel drive system and swiveling headlights that moved to shine light into corners. And this was all before 1970! This legacy of thinking ahead and making motoring exciting is at the heart of every Citroen and it’s the reason these cars are feature rich, extraordinary and a pleasure to drive.
If you’re an existing Citroen Owner – then you know that it’s hard to find a car that has so much thought put into it. All the clever little storage options and the ergonomic touches that challenge other manufacturers to compete at the price point. So yes it’s sad news that they have left and they will be missed. But the good news is that if you are considering buying a used Citroen, then we have both a Citroen Extended Warranty for you and an aftermarket Service Plan for your Citroen to make the upkeep more affordable.
There probably aren’t that many manufacturers that can seriously propose and pull off rubberized door panels quite like the Citroen C4 Cactus!! And even though it was “out there” in styling, the C4 Cactus was a finalist in the 2016 SA Car of the Year.
Buying a Used Citroen C3, C4 or DS3 and need an Extended Warranty?
So obviously buying a vehicle that is no longer sold in South Africa sounds risky, but just look what you’re getting for the money! These cars are fully loaded and weren’t awarded 2010 Car of the Year by Top Gear for nothing. It’s probably worth taking the risk (if any at all) and then to be sure just get an extended warranty for anything that rears it’s ugly head.
The only downside would be that you are probably not going to sell it easily when the times comes to say bye bye but if you are prepared to sell low then you it’s really not a problem. Few cars hold there value well beyond 7 years anyway, so it’s a case of buy low and sell lower… If you’re OK with that and understand that normal car is an investment, then go for it, buy the Citroen and be covered with Warranty Extender.
