1998 Citroen Xsara Berline 1.4


A disaster


Exhaust broken

Brake pads worn out

Heater radiator broken

Head gasket blew

Head maybe torn.

This all happened in a time of 6 months. I always drove normally in it, so there was no thinkable reason why so much broke in such a short period of time.

General Comments:

I will never buy a Xsara in my life again!

The costs for repairing were estimated 1500 to 1700 euro's. I left it broken at the dealer and bought another car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Worn out brake pads are hardly a fault, and who would expect 100% reliability from a french hatch with 160000km?

The same applies to the exhaust. Every car needs a new exhaust and pads at sometime in its life.
