Honest John likes them and found these minor disadvantages:
"Just two small criticisms: Drivers with big feet might find themselves pressing more than one pedal at once. And there's no automatic. But, hey, you can't have everything, even though Citroen gives you more for less than any other car maker."
Please pray that we would make a good decision.
