Don't buy this car, it's a poor sod
Front wheels wobbly at 120 km, steel wheels have been replaced by alloys with new tires, but problem persists. Probably the half axles need a check.
XM's always make noises and little bits and pieces go faulty, however they seem to regenerate after a while, so you better leave the car alone until it really breaks down.
This is my second XM and it will probably kill me because there seems to be no limit to merciless cornering on bad Spanish roads, especially if a stubborn Audi A8 won't let you go by.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
