General Comments:

The car is reliable, starts first time everyday and still quite economical. Not too many repairs to date although the transmission is becoming noisy once again. In the 94 model tha lack of power assisted steering is a drawback. Minor problems with the central locking since the car was new. Also had to replace the mechanisms of the rear window winders due to rust of the cables.

Affordable, practical, luxurious!


I just recently bought the car about a month ago. Nothing have gone wrong so far, I'll keep you posted.

General Comments:

Impressive quality of ride! Just moved to Spain from United States and have never driven a Citroen, better yet, seen one.

I don't know why they don't sell them in US. So far, my impression is, well made, designed, practical, and in my opinion, very well engineered.

I am really impressed with the rolling screen in the hatch rear window glass, smoothness of the engine and quietness.

I bought the car as a second car since I am only authorized to ship one car. We currently own 2001 Toyota RAV4L All Wheel Drive 4 dr.

I think it is a great bargain for $1,800.00. Avantage model. With 4 new tires, new carb, newly charged A/C, power windows, mirrors, locks, rear wiper, defroster.

I really like the design of a covered stereo faceplate to keep my stereo system hidden.

All of the do it yourself parts for maintenance is easily accessible, oil filter, plugs, etc.

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