Citroen Tribute - Hydropneumatic suspension 1954-2018

Published in Video

Tribute to the worlds most innovative car make CITROEN. Video intended for fellow citroen enthusiasist. Im not youtuber, and i do not earn any money from this. Last hydropneumatic car, C5 x7 was built 2.6.2017. Slowly disappearing from market. Tribute to all the people behind citroen, that realy created the best cars with best effort. We will never forget the biggest names Andre Citroen, Andre Lefebvre, Robert Opron, Flaminio Bertoni and Paul Magés the father of hydropneumatic suspension, Diravi and other stuff. Rest in peace. This is also thank you, for all citroen positive fans and hydractivers. And to the french engineering and pioneers, which gave us transmission, front wheel drive, hatchbacks, vans, and much more things that formed cars as we know them today. Hydropneumatic suspension started in Traction Avant and 2CV prototypes in 1954. Ended with C5 III (x7) in 2017. When C5 sales were under 15 000 pieces per year. Therefore this is not tribute to PSA management , which every 5 years turns 180 degrees back to customer, especially Carlos Tavares and Linda Jackson. They are responsible for whole midlle class segment C5 & C6 failure after (2008). Cars quality and reliability was thrown into trash bin, buyers and owners scammed. Maybe i will make video about it one day. They are responsible for killing hydropneumatic suspension and divorcing citroen to unusable unpractical DS cars and quirky cheap citroen cars. The last manufacturer who use hydropneumatic suspension is Toyota. AHC and KDSS system and im gratefull for that. I had many citroens and i ended with few unique pieces (BX 16v, BX 4x4, Xantia Activa, C5 II. break and C6) which i keep in running condition. For daily driving i have my C6 and C5 II. This cars was the last unique cars from this maker i ever bought. I have no intention to buy uncomfortable, cheap made cars. Maybe you wont hear me PSA group, but you dear reader, you will. Thats my last words, as disappointed citroen fan. - old website
