1997 Citroen ZX Volcane 2.0i
ZX - A classic in the making
Normal wear and tear.
Stepper motor was first to go out, after 2 years of usage (too early). Changed it and now 10 years later, it gives no problem whatsoever.
Repaired rear axle at 260,000km or 12 years of usage.
Changed clutch kit 2 days ago at 270,000km.
Changed timing belt every 60,000km.
Gear lever rod gave way after 5 years.
Absorbers changed every 3 years.
After 12 years, the car now needs a fresh coat of paint.
I've owned the car since new.
It is definitely value for money. Comfortable, fast, excellent handling and still looks good after all these years.
Spare parts were a bit pricey in the beginning but now with more independent workshops able to handle Citroens in Malaysia, maintenance is reasonable and fairly convenient.
Very poor 2nd hand value. Anyway I am not planning to sell it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
