1995 Citroen Xantia TD LX 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Too heavy compared to the BX it replaced
Problems with one of the high voltage starter relays/circuits under the bonnet occasionally prevents the glow plugs warming up!!!
The central locking remote is not of very good quality, the rubber button parts have fallen to pieces and a replacement one is just too damn expensive.
I also have to be less than 1 metre away from any window for the car to work.
The radiator also blew out (literally) at about 80,000 miles.
The car is a lot heavier than the BX it replaces despite added safety features.
Why do they need to have 2 different turbo chargers (one very weak and one slightly stronger)????? Just fit one powerful one please Citroen, we want a diesel and we don't need two choices!!! And you could easily shell off a few pounds on the car. This wouldn't harm the MPG and would make it cheaper for you to build. If you put the 1.9 HDi(110bhp) engine in an old BX I'm sure you would get over 60mpg easily........
And why isn't hydractive suspension put on all models???
The new R/F remote transmitter fixes the problem I and my friends have with the Infrared ones we have.
And when I take my car in for a service it might be nice to get a courtesy car of any kind... even a basic Saxo would be nice!!!!!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
