1993 Citroen Xantia SX 2.0i from UK and Ireland
Nice car, but not for a low budget
Front Accumulator Sphere losing pressure.
Front Height Corrector bust (£210 to fix)
Rear suspension very slow to rise needs sorting out.
Temperature sensor and bypass air valve replaced.
ABS Sensor failed.
Both front Drive Shaft Gaiters have split.
Loses about 3/4l of oil a month.
Firstly the good points.
I have only ever driven one car with better brakes than this, and that was a Ferrari.
Very spacious, nice trim and controls (Steering wheel radio controls)
Looks different, you're making a statement by purchasing this car.
Suspension, although troublesome, is the smoothest I've ever experienced and make road humps disappear.
And now for the bad points...
Petrol consumption is terrible, the best I ever get out of it is about 22 mpg.
No-one, but Citreon dealers want to touch the suspension and so can get very expensive.
Engine management doesn't seem up to par.
A bit sluggish for a 2.0i.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
