1992 Citroen BX TXD Turbo 1.8 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Mine is a lemon
Car will not start - possible power drain. The battery does not recharge after driving the car, which suggests a problem with the alternator.
Turbo spins but provides no power. Checked pipes, and took the car to 2 garages, neither could diagnose the problem.
Possible rear arm bearings pending.
The worst car I have owned. Some serious issues, and much money required to fix.
I have just got another car to replace the BX...
I am in no doubt that this car is simply a bad example, so I would get another BX, just not at the moment.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

A lemon is when you get a new car with the faults you mention, what you got was an old worn-out high mileage car.

Look on the bright side, you could have brought a Peugeot 306 - now that is a really bad car. Look at the reviews on this site for proof.

Who put that last one up? Very Funny!

Update... after getting some help with the car, we found out there's even more wrong than first thought - it's leaking oil from somewhere and the cambelt was ready to fail, but luckily I haven't been using the car, so that's OK. It's been sat outside my house for about a month now looking like a right mess.
