Road cruiser spaceship!!!!!
A lot of rattles from dashboard and safety belt holder.
Glass cover for the speedometer suddenly broke when I was driving (?????!!!!)
Seat heater out of order on the driver's side.
Glovebox cover between the seats broke down.
Plastic cover for the startcode broke down.
The local dealer took care of all this without any costs, there is a three year guarantee for all Citroën vehicles in Sweden, which is good.
Except for these small faults the car is running very, very well.
A really comfortable car with a lot of equipment as a standard.
Cheap service costs and good mechanics at the local dealer, you are always welcome if something goes wrong - even on the same day if needed.
It's a pity that they stopped producing the XM. Some more modern engines and better materials for the dashboard (without all the rattles), could keep this range on the market for many years to come. Very nice design.
It does not use as much petrol as I expected (7,4l/100 km) on a longer journey.
Very good sound from the stereo, which includes both cassette and CD-changer.
Sunroof still available, which many manufactors do not offer anymore, at least not for the Swedish market - this is a great option that I like very much!
I hope that the new C5 is at least as good as the XM on the road, but it's not a real Citroën when you look at it. I said that when the XM replaced the CX too in 1989, but let's forget about that for now!! :-))
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
