1992 Citroen BX 17 1.7 tzd from UK and Ireland
Not a car for youngsters
The suspension developed a leak at 140000 miles. But I never bothered. Bought a 4 litres of hydraulic fluid and kept on topping up. Drove the car another 5000 miles like this. Worked fine.
Very comfortable car. All the buttons were still working when I scrapped it. Needs a little bit of care in the use of hydro pneumatic suspension. I raised the car to its maximum height and drove off road, that's when it developed the leak.
The best part is the engine. Gave me 8.8 miles per pound when a litre was 93p.
The car is lush from the inside and adjustable shocks make it highly comfortable. It's very spacious too.
I could never go above 95mph, as the car started to vibrate above that speed. Don't know why.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
