Kid wants to inherit my C5 already (she's 7!)

Post by Ben82 »

Kids are adorable sometimes aren't they?

The other day my daughter (who's 7 almost 8), says to me in the car "Daddy, when I'm old enough, and if we still have this car, can I have it?"

Credit probably goes to the Hydractive Suspension, as this is the only car she does not get regularly car sick in, other cars we've had to carry a bowl around in just in case, this one she can sit and play around in the back with her toys/do some drawing etc In other cars we often still have to tell her to "watch the road" because she starts feeling queezy.

She has sometimes complained at me about going in someone else's car, and getting a bit moody about "but I want you to take me".. probably due to the above reason.

anyone got any similar stories of kids getting very attached it your car? or got fond memories of your parents'?

I can remember back when I was small, my parents had a Nissan Bluebird Estate (think it was like this one), and often we would sit in the boot and there was a thing to hold on to, great for when a group of us kids were going to go swimming etc. Couldn't do that nowadays - Health and Safety and all that.

Well, I think that that is a great endorsement for Citroens and their suspension system.

She'll get more sense as she grows and want something else

Yep, my youngest, when she was about the age of yours used to suffer it terribly. I had a 405 then and in both my and her mum's car (a Fraud Fracas) she was regularly sick.

I then bought my first Xantia. Siany's Mum went ballistic saying that she'd be even sicker than ever in a Citroen. Funny thing - from that day on Siany was never sick again ever in any of my Xantias but still was in her mum's cars :roll:
