I’ve waited a year to find out whether anyone can save my 2001 C5 Exclusive, but the parts situation is hopeless, so it will have to be scrapped. A crazy situation – it probably only needs a £200 fusebox, or something else electrical, but two very capable mechanics have advised against having further work done on it. Fortunately it only cost £1,600, and has been superb for the eight years I’ve owned it, so it’s proved a remarkably inexpensive way of enjoying high quality motoring.
The only significant expense has been a replacement suspension pump. I opted for a new one, which cost around £1,000. As it’s done very little mileage, I’m wondering whether later C5s used the same design? If so I would ask my mechanic to remove the pump for me, to keep as a spare, as I’m very likely to buy a newer C5. Presumably I should look for a Mark 2, as the parts situation on those should be easier?
