1995 Citroen Xantia LX 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
A reliable, economical, comfortable car for very little money
Nothing, routine maintenance and normal consumables apart.
The most comfortable car that I have owned.
Very stable on the motorway and handles well.
Good range over 600 miles per tankful.
Economical - 50mpg.
Must be one of the best second hand buys. Prices drop so much as the British public tend to hate anything French, and tend to be frightened off by unrealistic repair estimates.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1990's Xantia - These were good cars, underrated in my opinion. Not the most reliable, but not as bad as people made them out to be, and certainly better than Renault's Laguna at the time, in regards to reliability.

The Xantia must have a lot going for it; where I live in France many of the farmers still have either these cars or the replacement first-generation C5 as their daily driver. They aren't the type of people known for wasting money for sentimental reasons!
