1993 Citroen Xantia LX 1.7 TD from UK and Ireland
The Best Car I have ever owned
Absolutley nothing for 3years: just normal servicing.
Nearly lost the car after the parking brake cooled and released in camping site in Spain.
LH electric window failed 75000miles
Suspension units needed replacement 77000 miles.
I bought this car because of the legendary ride quality, great Peugeot Turbo diesel engine and it had looks to die for. I do not reckon Citroen or any other manufacture has produced a big saloon car that looks so perfect. Even now it is a head turner.
Performance, ride and handling lived up to expectations: though odd passengers complained of feeling car sick when piloting it at speed on mountain roads.
Fuel economy at up to 50mpg was quite remarkable I could drive from one end of France to the Other on little more than a tank or 2 of cheap French Diesel
I just loved this car
The only reason I changed it was that my mechanic said they started to fall apart after 70,000miles He was right; I kept the Car for a few more months and the suspension failed the week I put the Car up for Sale
Cest La Vie!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
