Since end
of November I am proud owner of a new
DS4 2.0 blueHDi150 S&S MAN6 So chic, a beautiful designed car, but""¦

(my
apologies if some words are not correct since I am Belgian)

After a few
days we experienced a sort of vibration coming through the clutch pedal, the steering-wheel
and the gear box, especially when asking for power

The car
already went 3 times to our garage. They didn't feel anything but first they
put the car onto the computer and there were no defects shown. So there can't be
a problem according to Citroën.

Then a man
from Citroën Belgium came to experience the problem but after riding for 300km
his verdict was: the car is technical OK. But he also put the car first onto
the computer and we have experienced that, every time the car came back from
the garage, the car was OK during a few days so probably the software is doing
something to the car?

These are
our findings:

1. Car doesn't start smoothly (if it
does, the problem is non-existent or less)

2. The engine makes a more roaring
sound

3. Changing gear runs more bumpy

4. At first when riding in lower gear
you don't feel it, but when asking for power and velocity going from gear 3 to
4 to 5 to 6 (+1850rpm) you can feel it very well

5. It feels like the car is
regenerating (when the new cars regenerate, you can't feel this anymore, but in
the old cars you could feel this very well) It's like all the ""˜consumers' are
lighted at the same time (AC, heating, windscreen defrosting,""¦) and the car is
losing power because of it.

6. When you start with a cold engine,
the problem is worst. When you stop for a while (engine is already warm) and
you start again, the problem is less or even gone. (however in the beginning the
car had good days, but now it's present every time but not always in the same
degree)

7. 2 times we had this: riding
perfectly, we let the car slowing down
(in gear, but not giving power so consumption zero for a few yards) and suddenly
the problem appeared when we throttled. Did something happen when there was
consumption zero?

Last Wednesday
we had a new appointment with people of Citroën. They didn't experience the
problem L. We
got a new offer for buying a new car but we don't want to pay an extra 3000
euro and having to ride with an engine we didn't choose for in the beginning!
(note that in Belgium from 1.1.16 on the taxes on Diesel engines has risen
enormously) We want our car to be fixed!
My husband and I are riding a car (8 different cars) for 30 years now and we
pay attention to detail so we are very sure this car is having a problem. We
have felt when it was riding well so we can tell the difference when it is
riding bad. After a big ride, our hands and foot are ""˜sleeping' caused by the vibrations.

Hoping to find
a solution because I really love this car!

Sorry for
this long topic J
