1996 Citroen Xantia 2.0i from Malaysia
I wouldn't leave home without it
The faults in my car were caused by poor maintenance by the previous owner. For example, the spheres in my car are on their way to hell.. I have replaced the rear spheres and I'm going to overhaul the suspensions.
The car had overheating problems because the previous owner put in a stupid japanese fan and modified the fan wiring. Got the original fan working and never had any problems since.
I have not checked the strut mountings for cracks, and I'm going to do it soon before it shoots out.
On the whole.. the Xantia is a fun and wonderful car to drive. I look forward to driving it everyday.
The suspension system is a dream, which makes you feel like you are floating over highways. The car corners effortlessly, giving me a kinda feeling that I can do almost anything while driving.
After I finish my work on the Xantia, I will get an XM!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Go get the XM! I just returned to Johor Bahru from Kuala Lumpur. I have a 1991 XM series 1, Bought it about 3 months back. Already made 4 trips to Kuala Lumpur in the XM (each return trip is 800kms). Absolutely fantastic car.
Today's trip I used the Semenyih-Broga-Mantin back roads... an absolute leech of a car.
No regrets getting the XM. Shortly I will head for Kota Tinggi from Johor Bahru... I am still fresh from the Kuala Lumpur trip.!!!
