1992 Citroen ZX Reflex 1.4i from France
Solid, great cargo capacity, excellent handling, lacks a bit of power
Most of the failures should really be put on the account of my rough handling of the car in my younger years. The only problem that I do not blame on myself is the quirky electrical system : rusted connectors are common and the failure of the interior lighting is not uncommon.
I broke more things that I can remember, but that is really me more than anything else - I even broke the driver's seat's metal structure and had to buy a new seat from a scrap dealer...
You need to rev up the engine quite a bit to get significant power, but the road handling is excellent even in treacherous conditions. Power/weight ratio is a bit low, but that three-doors ZX is nevertheless a delight to drive if you don't mind the lack of power steering.
Cargo capacity is enormous for a car of its size. I made countless trips of more than 1000km loaded to the gills and each time I blessed the interior space.
14 years, 120000 km and still going great although I now seldom use it more than thrice a month.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
