Summary:

Quiet, reliable and comfortable car

Faults:

Front suspension left side (twice).

Wheel bearing left.

General Comments:

The car is generally underestimated. Although hardly known, it's very good value for money. Quick, reliable, comfortable, unbelievable quiet and second hand very affordable. Hardly any space on the backseats, still comparable with other cars in this class (BMW-3).

Bodywork is still in a super condition (15 years old!!)

Every inch of the car breaths quality.

Engine needs revving to perform, but is smooth enough to cruise at 1500 revs. This Xedos is up to anything.

Interior colors are from the late 1950's.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Summary:

Better buy than any BMW... bargain

Faults:

Nothing much really...

Rear brake caliper broken.

Exhaust replaced after 3000 km since purchase.

Small leaks in the cooling system.

One doorpanel that doesn't want to stick to the door :-)

Car feels very well build!

General Comments:

This car is one of the best I ever owned.

It's fast enough to annoy several people who think that they have a "fast" car.

Car handles just fine, but lowered springs would benefit the car.

Car drives like new, although has covered over 200.000 km.

Car is over ten years old - but still doesn't look dated.
