1989 Citroen BX RE14 1.4
Great to drive, not so great to look at
I had to get one rust hole welded.
I was really a skeptic about Citroen. The reason I got it was that I crashed my Opel and needed another car fast. The BX had no rust to speak of, except one small hole in the left front wheel housing. It was really cheap and had a well documented service book, so I thought, well, why not give it a try.
So far I have not been disappointed. I can't imagine getting more car for the money. It handles extremely well on the highway with all the comfort that, at least, I require.
I do have a few remarks:
I can't seem to quite get along with the driver seat. I've heard that there are better seats on more exclusive variants of the BX, so I will try to get a hold of at least the driver seat.
It takes a little more gas than I had heard it would. My kadett (R.I.P) was better in that respect.
I'm still trying to convince myself that it isn't one of the ugliest cars I've ever seen.
Apart from this I'm afraid I'm starting to develop tender feelings to-wards this car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
