Superb Car. I will keep it as long as Possible


110.000 kilometers: Replacement of all 5 the spheres (which was not really expensive)

145.000 kilometers: Oil Leak. It appeared to be the underpart of the oil reservoir.

165.000 kilometers: Lambda-Unit broke down.

General Comments:

This is such a good driving car. Compared to other cars of this age (e.g. Ford Mondeo, Vauxhall Vectra and Audi 80) it's so much more refined en really well built and reliable.

What I really like is the torque in the low revs and of course the superb ride.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

If it really is a 2CV, you did a very good job tuning it. More likely you are referring to a xantia... Great cars indeed.

I'm sorry. For some reason the story ended up in the 2CV page. I really want to get it in the right place (the Xantia part) but I don't know how!!!
