More and more Citroen owners are looking into getting warranty cover for their cars in a bid to control the costs of possible repairs. Citroen extended warranties not only can save you thousands of pounds in sudden, unexpected and sky-high repair bills, but they can also give you peace of mind that you can enjoy your Citroen worry-free from repair bills. Knowing that you’re covered repairs to your Citroen, it also means that you can financially plan much better knowing that you don’t have any car repair outlay to worry about.
As one of France’s premier car manufacturers, Citroens have long been loved for their chic French sense of style and excellent performance and reliability. Since 1919 they have been making innovative cars and are now part of the PSA Peugeot Citroen Group. Full of Gallic flair, Citroen used to have a reputation as being a make of car that had poor reliability, but this has changed in recent years. A lot of this was due to the introduction of the Citroen Xsara Picasso which has gone on to become a family favourite in the UK and beyond. However, sometimes things do go wrong like they do with any car and repairs can be expensive thanks to the increasing use of technology. For that reason, more and more Citroen drivers are choosing to protect themselves with extended Citroen car warranties.
What is a Citroen Extended Warranty?
A Citroen extended warranty is just as it says on the tin, it is simply an extension of the original manufacturer’s warranty. When you purchase a new Citroen, you are automatically given a manufacturer’s warranty for a number of years (usually 1-3) and this covers you for the full cost of any mechanical repairs. Once this runs out, you as the car owner are responsible for all such reairs including parts and labour. Costs can soon mount up. By taking out an extended warranty, Citroen owners can cover themselves from the cost of these repairs, just as they were with the original Citroen warranty.

I depends upon exactly which extended warranty you choose but most extended warranties for Citroen cars cover the vast majority of repairs and breakdowns as long as your car is:
