1994 Citroen AX Dimension 1.5 diesel from UK and Ireland
Badly made, slow, unsafe, bad handling, and loud noises coming from everywhere
Clutch release bearing went.
Front suspension mounts rusted thru like they were sheet metal.
Car was running on 3 cylinders a lot of the time.
Some dash lights were not working, and the dash made big noises.
Not a very good car. Badly made, slow, unsafe, bad handling and loud noises coming from everywhere.
One thing is it's comfy and cheap to insure, and that's it!
I recommend you look over it properly before you buy.
It's not far off 2CV territory to be honest.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Buy a Rolls next time... new of course. AX was one of the cheapest Citroën cars (production was stopped some 15 years ago to be replaced by the Saxo, a vehicle that isn't in production anymore either). It has 16 years and 154000 miles (~250000 km) and some of of the dashboard lights do not work anymore... and the engine is noisy... my oh my. To explain the other faults you mentioned, one has to be able to follow the servicing of the car for the last 16 years, which you cannot provide.

You bought a dud car. It happens, especially at the bottom end of the market. My AX cost me £150 two years and 35,000 miles ago. It has now done 158,000 miles from new. It just passed its MoT today after I spent an hour fixing a few minor defects. It shows every sign of going on forever. I love it.
