1998 Citroen Xantia 1.8i 16v
A car built for cruising, enjoying the ride..
When I bough the car, the previous owner said that he has replaced few things regarding transmission and steering.
In my hands, she had a problem with air condition fan brushes, and I had to replace one front sphere.
Sometimes (especially cold weather) the steering wheel is rock hard when the car is first started-and it is so for 5 minutes.
The softest car I have driven and the roomiest cabin.
The feeling when seated in the rear is presidential:-)
Great road holding despite it's 'soft look.
It only needs a bit of German precision in the engine and the transmission.
In the future I`ll be looking this type of suspension again-it is very comfortable and reliable-no matter what happens to it.
We have lousy roads here in Serbia, but this car literally "irons" the bumps.
And yes, it is very cheap in Serbia (for the money I can buy a crappy golf 3 `94 here) so I can afford to buy it anytime-cheap parts also.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
