1997 Citroen ZX SX 1.9 turbo diesel from UK and Ireland
Quick and fun
Rear brakes stick on when reversing.
Silencer has corroded through.
Alarm is on the blink, always has been, probably always will be!
Eats handbrake cables.
This car is surprisingly fast especially once you get the turbo going, wheelspins at the slightest provocation in the wet!
It handles brilliantly specially round corners, the result is heavy front tyre wear.
The suspension is a little soft, but then makes it very comfortable, the occasional 200 mile journey after 9 hours on your feet at work is surprisingly comfortable.
The bodywork is a bit thin, and this version has no rubbing strips on the doors, as a result I have several dings along the sides from other doors being opened into mine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
