Friends with fourbies. These guys take their off-roading way too seriously for my comfort!

Something excellent recently happened: an acquaintance who had driven Citroen DS cars for a long time dropped in an met my car Daphne for the first time. Living far from any Citroen specialist mechanics gives me some worries about how I'd manage if we were stranded. He cast his knowledgeable gaze over it, poked about under the bonnet, heaved down on the corners to check the suspension, and proclaimed it a Good Thing. As he regularly drives his DS long distances without concern, this was very reassuring to me.

Is there a forum for Citroen on the web where you can find a list of things to check and a list of typical things that go wrong? I know there are for older Porsches, BMWs, and the VW Vanagon.

Yes, I've found the members of AussieFrogs French car forum very helpful in getting things sorted out. Parts are fairly widely available, but I'm neither mechanically minded nor wealthy, so I have some anxiety about this weird old car that I don't have with my Japanese classics.
