1991 Citroen ZX Volcano 1.9 MPI


ZX Volcano - sometimes you get more than you pay for.


Flow-meter of an injection system failed which caused a bit 'rough' idling and some problems with adjusting a Liquid Petrol Gas installation.

Central locking remote control doesn't work.

Excessive wear of a front suspension (caused by horrible Polish roads I think)

General Comments:

Powerful engine - 122 HP. Great accelerate and top speed over 200 km/h!

Volcano with its lowered suspension looks much better than any BMW from early nineties.

Divine handling. In the corners ZX can easily drive 20 km/h faster than Golf or Escort not to mention 'spongy' Tipo.

ABS could be working a bit smoother.

Electrics (tail lamps especially) are not completely water proof. In heavy rain all the tail lights work together.

Comfortable and well finished interior. Velour seats and leather steering wheel seem to be even too much when compared with money one paid for that car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
