Safe, comfortable car, value for money.


Air bag light flashing, could be short circuited, waiting to repair at 10,000 km service.

Driver seat back support too soft at the spine area. Solve by stuffing a small pillow into the back pouch of the seat.

General Comments:

Generally happy with the car. The comfort will be very high if not because of the seat problem. A quiet car to my surprise.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I am also a owner of Xsara 1.6. I agreed with you that the driver seat is too soft, I am experience back ache too. But all the whole I like your comments. I hope you are just like me so far no regrets.
