“Xantia of truth !!!”

published 17/10/2006

Performance, Reliability, Price & Fuel Consumption

Turning circle.

About three months ago, my car completely gave up the ghost and I was left needing to purchase another car as soon as possible as I had no other way of getting to work. I have friends who work in the trade and I was able to ask them for their advice and assistance. I was told that due to my...

Good

Suspension, safety, trunk

Engine, finishing, turning circle

The Xantia I'm driving with is about 5 years old, has 100 000km, and is a company car. The engine is a 1.9liter Turbo Diesel. Good points: ------------ - It has a very comfortable suspension, in all circumstances. That's why it's called a Citroen... To travel with, it's a delight. For example, I...

“A floating cruiser”

published 08/08/2000

ride, handling(for a large car) and economy

noise and parts cost

The styling of the xantia has dated better than expected and this has made them more desireable as a sensible family car than many competitors. Inside the Xantia is the standard family car with a reasonably good helping of electrical gizmos as standard to keep the children amused. The car is a...

“Never owned a car like it”

published 06/10/2000

Power, Fuel economy, comfort

cannot think of any

I needed a car, and i had a few requirements that had to be met with that car. The Citroen Xantia I bought seemed to meet those requirements, and I was proven right in my choice, not only did it meet my requirements, it exceeded them in many respects. First any car I own has to be able to tow a...

Noise

I have owned my Xantia for 1 year now and it still makes me smile when i drive it. The ride quality is out of this world, people have warned me about the suspension being all hydrolic. I have not suffered any problems with mine, and i think that citroen have sorted this problem out now any way. I...

We bought our Xantia TD Estate 14 months ago as a replacement for a car written off in an accident. We were open minded about what car we wanted, just that it had to be an estate and diesel. We are competetive dinghy sailors and regularly tow our boat to different locations around the UK. The...

Old skool turbo lag and ....err thats about it

I bought this car purely on the basis that it was available, cheap at a time that I needed a car. I paid £300 for mine and i can safely say its the best £300 I have ever spent on anything in my life, it is reliable, quick, safe, easy to maintain (don't be put off by the hydraulic suspension it...

It's a granddad car, it doesn't have any real bite

If your looking for a reliable, economical, and extremely comfortable car then you need look no further. Reliability and Economy. It has a 1.9 litre engine, which counteracts the fact that it’s diesel as far aseconomy is concerned. It however runs at a good rate for the type of car it is...

I bought my 1998 Xantia with 98,000 on the clock last year for £600 and it is immaculate inside and out. The body work still has the high gloss of one from the showroom. There is no rust or discoloration, and the car is still an up to date looking car! Reliability- The car starts every time with...

“French tractor in disguise”

published 31/05/2007

runs forever, good mechanical reliability

dodgy electrics

I bought a Xantia 1.9 Dimension from a family member 4 years back for the princely sum of £500, and it is an investment that was worth making - since then I've spent £100 on new tyres, plus standard servicing, but that's all that's been needed to keep it on the road. The ride is fabulous, really...

“1994 1.9TD SX Hatchback”

published 05/06/2005

Economical, spacious, comfy cruiser

Expensive to repair, noisy

I've owned my Xantia for a year now. I'm soon to be parted from it so I thought i'd do a review while i still own it. The Xantia was my first Diesel car, and I love the engine. It has more than enough torque to handle the size of the car, outright BHP isn't up to much, but this is common with...

My wife has trouble parking as it is a large car

I purchased my Xantia in April 2002 and have found it to be the most comfortable car I have driven. The suspension is great as the impact of all of those potholes and bumps in the road are minimised. I use the car for business purposes and as I run my own business it still gives the appearance of...

Repair costs, Depreciation

I bought my car as a replacement for a small 3 door hatchback, looking for a cheap, large family car. I find that the car itself is very good. It's cheap on fuel, it's a very comfortable ride, easy to drive and the styling has aged quite well, in my opinion. The adjustable suspension is very...
