1994 Citroen ZX Advantage 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
A good companion for long and short journeys - enjoyable to drive
Rear brake cylinder leak and water hose leak fixed under warranty.
Battery got tired winter 2000.
Instrument bulbs replaced.
Broken windscreen (stone).
Standard radio swapped (+cash) with a local breaker for a Citroen radio with bass and treble controls - vast improvement.
Excellent in most ways: Handling, comfort, performance, reliability, economy, easy to drive, excellent low speed torque and very smooth and progressive throttle in crawling traffic.
Quite quiet and smooth at motorway speeds. Very unobtrusive engine at all speeds.
Body panels easy to get damaged by other car doors when parked.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I still have the car - probably the best I have owned.
The cylinder head and gasket were replaced at 111k.
The oil cooler started to mix a small amount of oil with the cooling water - sorted by visit to scrap-yard.
I have just replaced the radiator, and the rear rubber mountings for the rear axle, 131k miles.
No rust on body, but a few creaks from the plastic panels at the rear, 48 mpg and great to drive.
