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 efficient, as is the whole ventilation system (de-misting the front and rear windscreens is a breeze). I use it everyday for a 150 mile commute and as yet, have had no serious problems with it, however it does have a tendancy to stall when i first start it. The stereo is acceptable and the steering wheel controls are especially handy, but again, it could be better. There is adequate space for passengers and plenty of room in the boot, average space for an average car. I also feel that the seats are a tad uncomfortable. My only real gripe is the terrible view you get out of the rear windscreen. The boot is so high up, parking becomes a real issue and you have to depend on your side mirrors and leaning out of the window to avoid collisions. I find the car useful around london, it has a good acceleration, but find it lacking on the motorways. Once you're in 5th gear, overtaking becomes a bit of a problem and you really have to drop it into third to get any real power back.
Overall, a good car which i'll probably keep for a while, but probably won't be buying another one.
