Congrats on your purchase, I love my 2016 CX-3 bought in 2017.

They still make French cars??? I didn't know they still made cars in France until I read recently of the proposed Renault - Fiat Chrysler merger. Is Citroen still around? When I was a teenager in the 70s I had a neighbor who was restoring an old Citroen, looked like an ugly old car to me.

I've owned British cars (Triumph & MG), German (VW Karmann Ghia) Italian (Lancia & Alpha Romeo), Korean (Kia) and Japanese (Honda & Mazda), but never a French car. I've only owned 2 American cars, a 1969 Chevy El Camino and a 1999 Chrysler Cirrus - the Chrysler cured me of buying American cars, it darn near qualified for the lemon law.

Citroen is part of the French PSA Group which covers primarily the Peugoet / Citroen / DS / Opel and Vauxhall brands - the latter two were sold by GM back in 2017. Cars are manufactured in France plus various other European, Asian, African and South American countries. It is planning to re-enter the North American market. There has been a recent rumour that the PSA Group is interested in buying the Jaguar / Land Rover brand from Tata Motors.

I know that the thread is most likely dead, but I still would like to tell an old story of mine on the topic. First off congratulations on your purchase, I hope you like your CX, very good car in my opinion. So I wanted to tell you about my experience with a French car I had back when I used to live in the United Kingdom, a Renault Logan to be more specific. One day I was driving with my mate and the brakes just stopped working as we were driving, unfortunately we hit a pillar and the was in a very bad condition, at least the airbag system worked, and we were fine. I ended up giving the car to a scrap car collection company, they did their job greatly and for free, here is their website if anyone is interested: Free Scrap Car Collection Near You . After such an experience I will never trust Renault, and other French car companies.
