Is it possibly a lemon or am I mistaken?
Citroën = French Auto
In America we call an auto with a very bad repair history "a lemon".
It is interesting that a Citroën is an automobile.
Andre Citroën, founder of the Citroën car making industry, was the son of a Dutch diamond merchand, Levi Citroën. If anything the name is probably Jewish, actually. It may or may not be related to the word "citron" that is French for "lemon" - and other close sounding words in other languages - but it is a distinct possibility.
In any case, we don't call a bad car a "citron" by the way. )
I won't say more, since this is a forum for Dutch and not for French.
Groetjes en veel geluk,
