ProImpressive looks, Economical

ConsCan't see anything out the back window

I have become a Citroen owner by chance really. My Aunt who looks after her cars really well (cleaned every week, waxed & polished once a month, serviced regularly, low mileage) has brought a brand new Mini & was offered a really derisory amount by the dealer for her T reg Citroen Xsara SX 1.6i...

ProHandling, practicality

ConsBoring if youre not driving it

The fact that this car has been on sale since 1997 yet nobody has given an opinion on it says everything - it doesnt get you talking. We have a 1998 Xsara with 25000 miles on it. Its had a couple of faults - it started stalling which was apparently caused by a sensor in the exhaust getting dirty...

ProNice Handling, nippy around town

ConsNothing special, terrible view out of rear mirror

I purchased my Citroen Xsara from the dreaded Yes Car Credit (see my review). I have to say that its the smoothest car i've ever driven and the handling is excellent. Its a bit basic inside, but that makes it easy to keep tidy so isn't really a negative. The air conditioning is quick and...

ProGood value for money. Comfortable and economical.

ConsParts can be expensive.

I bought my 2003 Citroen Xsara 4 years ago whilst still working as an estate agent. It had only done 6,000 miles and was cheap at £5,500. It served me extremely well initially and, even now, at 68,000 miles is a reliable starter. It is still quite economical to run and reasonably comfortable on a...

The only drawback I find is that there is a split second delay before the required response happens. This is true of dipping the headlights, putting on the heater, or applying the accelerator. I am more use to an instant response. handling, all round vision, plus added features make it a car I am proud to own. Annual servicing from the franchise does become expensive. I haven't worked out the mpg, but it is probably overall in the region of 35mpg, taking all driving into consideration - that is, town driving (mostly), and occasional trips to the airport. I've had mine (the SX) since 2001, and am not considering replacing it. Annoyingly, the 6 cd player has recently packed up. Very comfortable overall. Would I buy again? Would have to check out the market at the time. Possibly Yes.

“Nice looking reliable car”

ProGood handling,cheap tax,comfortable

ConsSlow acceleration(spose it is only a 1.6!)

I bought my Xsara mark 2 on a 54 plate just as the C4 was replacing it and im glad i did. Its the new look model and has all the mod cons air con,alloys etc and really is a nice car to drive. It can be a bit sluggish accelerating, but then only boy racers want to leave everyone in their dust at...
