I've been given many french cars, of various makes, to drive since the mid 90's.
Every single one has come a cropper with bad electrical systems.. no expections.. one even went on fire.
Every family member that has had a French car, since about the the same time, has had multiple eletrical issues, ranging from, battery draining overnight (cause found to be a short in the interior lighting loom), power steering failure (common fault in Peugeots, generally a bad connection in steering wheel), shorts in the horn system (caused by a common fault in an electrical ring around the driver airbag) etc etc...
I run a fleet of vans, and I just cannot justify buying anything French, due to the crap I've had to deal with, with their cars..
This may well be well trimmed and economical.. but after 4-5 years, I'll bet you'll have a hard time selling them on, when you need, or people know you need, expensive electric work.
