1998 Citroen Xantia Exclusive 2.1 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Brilliant all rounder and good value for money
Lots of clicking from the regulator so I replaced the accumulator sphere as a precautionary measure, all is fine now. Maybe a bit of a harsh ride which will require new suspension spheres all round £20 a shot is very cheap.
Heated seats are questionable, but doesn't bother me much as summer is coming.
I bought it for £1400 on ebay, and it's such a nice car, it's a good car with what I feel to be a susperb suspension system, I doubt I will go back to a car with springs for a long time.
It's performance isn't too bad, brisk, but not fast, how fast do you want to go, it's at it's best on a motorway, quiet, quick and the turbo is on tap at 70mph.
Handling is something to behold for a family car, good grip, and very confident!
It's a sensible car, comfortable, spacious, quick and above all economical, I get exactly what the manufacturer says 40mpg, that can stretch to 50mpg on a long run.
The seats are awesome, comfortable and adjust in all possible ways. The cd/radio is not too bad at all for standard item.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
