1984 Citroen BX 16 TRS 1.6 petrol


Good to have if you're into car mechanics


What went wrong with the car... almost everything!!!

From clutch, brakes, and exhaust to electric windows, and in particular the "hi tech" super nice suspension - never let me do a nice trip, not once!

General Comments:

Nice car, nice to drive, a little slow when accelerating, and high petrol intake.

Very comfortable, and excellent dynamic behaviour, a very safe car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

High fuel consumption in a carburettor fed BX can be due to removal of the temperature controlled air ducts that go to the air cleaner, or a faulty temperature controller where the ducts connect. The carburettor is set up to run best at 35C and can guzzle otherwise. Also give jets a clearing with compressed air.
