1997 Citroen Xantia activa sedan 2.0 turbo from Australia and New Zealand
Small stuff: engine mount, brake pads (bit too often) battery, cruise control (after market)
Build quality: clips, etc break easily.
Floormat clips silly, etc.
But the "bones" of the car are great!
Greatest fault: slow hydraulics (esp. rear) but improved in later two pump models. Slow to get to pressure.
At the price (a very important consideration!) a great car. Performance, comfort, steering + dynamics very superior for a "budget" performance car.
High comfort levels.
Boring design compared to "real" Citroens!
Terrific compromise between a sedate family car and a performance vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
