Citroen Visa (1978 – 1988) Review

Citroen Visa (1978 – 1988) At A Glance


+Roomy, comfortable, characterful flat-twin, interesting dashboard, sporting models go well, Decapotable version is a cheap fun convertible

-Rust, poor parts and specialist support, almost extinct

The next Peugeot-engineered Citroën after the LN made a much more convincing case for itself. It took the full-size 104 platform and combined it with an unusual body that was an evolution of a stillborn Citroen-designed mid-'70s supermini.

The combination of idiosyncratic and rational made for an excellent supermini, which went well, even in 652cc Club form. The convertible Decapotable model is an interesting five-door option - a latter-day Morris Minor Convertible. Continuously developed, and once introduced in GTI and Diesel form, the Visa truly came of age – and although it died in 1988, the C15 van lived into the 21st century.

Ask Honest John

Are there are any major issues with the Citroen C15 Romahome?

"Could you please tell me if there are any major issues with the Citroen C15 Romahome?"
First thing, it's ancient, based on the van version of the Citroen Visa and built from 1984 to 2005. This will be one of the last, but the bigger body will have taken its toll on the suspension and the vehicle needs to be carefully inspected for body rot. The mechanics are ancient too, and you may have problems getting spares. Before our time for vans, but you can check them out on Wikipedia:

How do I find a manual for my Citroen C15?

"I've got a 2002 Citroen C15 van, I don't have a manual with it. Does anyone have a diagram of the dashboard warning lights with a key? I'm trying to figure out what one of them is."
The Citroen C15 was based on the Visa hatchback and a wiring diagram for the latter should help you figure out the warning lights. Haynes do a good range of technical help books (both online and in print) or you could contact the Citroen Owners' Club:
