1991 Citroen BX Cannes 1.4i from Netherlands
Comfortable and cheap!
Ignition failed, remains in sports mode sometimes, minor problems with the warning lights.
Unlike the general opinion this car has proven to be both comfortable and reliable in the long run. This car can be bought very cheap due to the undeserved bad reputation. Get a model after 1988, the revision is substantial.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The Cannes model was a great succes in the Netherlands... One small mistake in this comment: the BX has the classic hydropneumatic suspension, this is superb but hasn't got a sports-setting. You must have mistaken the lowering of the car with sport-mode. But pay attention: don't drive your BX while you've set the suspension in the lowest position, this setting is only for loading heavy luggage and changing a tire, driving in this position will most certainly cause damage.
