1999 Citroen Xsara SX 1.9TD from UK and Ireland
A fair deal
Safety bag warning light comes on for no reason. The dealer has 'fixed' it twice, but the problem recurs each winter. I gather this is a common problem. There is, apparently, no fault with the safety bags, but simply a fault in the warning light circuit - and this is intermittent.
This is a good family car with a huge boot. The principal disadvantage is rear visibility - caused, presumably, by the high line of the boot lid.
For a diesel engine in a fairly small car, the fuel consumption is not outstanding. At best one can achieve about 50mpg.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
