1990 Citroen BX GTi 1.9 petrol from UK and Ireland
A cheap, fast and comfortable car
A couple of hydraulic leaks - nothing serious enough to cause a failure.
The starter motor packed in at 130,000 followed about 5,000 miles later my the alternator. It once decided to run on only two cylinders, but still managed to get to a garage without stranding me. Still any car shows problems past 100k.
This is not the easiest car in the world to drive. Like most Citroens, it has its quirks, but you soon learn how to appreciate them. With a heavy clutch, it can be a little tiring around town, but on the twisty stuff and on motorways you soon forget about that with it's good grip and supple ride.
If you're looking for something a little different and fun to drive, this could well be just what you're after.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
