1997 Citroen Xantia VSX 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Comfortable and reliable
Wiper motor ball joint -220000 miles
Alternator bearing rumble- 225000 miles.
A very good car to have, not to be bought if you go to a main dealer because even they do not know what they are doing half the time and you end up paying through the nose.
Not to be bought if you do not comprehend how the car functions, there is nothing worse than listening to someone whine on how the car leaks, its heavy on front tyres or the suspension is hard.
It's a very easy car to work on and so simple to fix and a car that will last for ages providing you service it properly and know what you are doing.
It it very comfortable, best car is a turbo diesel estate vsx with leather interior.
The ride is very comfortable and the engines long lasting, I would recommend the xantia to anyone that has more than 2 brain cells to rub together.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
