1994 Citroen Xantia X 1.9 diesel from Netherlands
Lots of space and comfort at a good price
Cooling fluid leakage at 196000 kilometres due to oil loss. Repaired under warranty.
Oil leakage at 196500 kilometres. This one should have been discovered by my dealer during the pervious repair. Repaired under warranty.
The central locking system starts to show signs of old age.
It's a great car for long distance driving. You can hardly get a more comfortable ride than this one.
I get a mileage of around 17 kilometres per liter.
The car's interior and exterior still look very good.
Unfortunately the 1.9 diesel version is about as fast as a snail when it comes to accelerating. This is something that takes a lot to get used on. Especially if you're used to driving a Peugeot 106 xsi, like I was. So if you get the chance, go for the turbo diesel or HDI instead.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
