“XSARA DOCTOR IN THE HOUSE”

published 02/10/2001

Spacious, good looking and reliable

minor problems after two years and 60000 miles

Xsara…What a strange name! Perhaps Citroen had a valid reason for naming two of their cars with ridiculous names, maybe we will never know. I bought my brand new Xsara 1.4i, 5-door saloon, in silver grey in January of 2000. My husband had absolutely nothing to do with the choice of car...

1.4 engine is not fast

I have had my Xsara since March and I'm thrilled with it. I tried and tested all the cars in this class from other manufacturers and I felt it was the best package. The spec for a car of this price is excellent - 4 Aibags, ABS with EBD, Remote Locking, Climate Control, Electric windows and full...

good price, roomy

none that I have found

I purchased my Citroen Xsara Forte 1.4l in June 2000. I was looking for something that would be large enough for giving lifts to friends but not too expensive for me. Since I bought it, it has given me enormous pleasure for such a reasonably priced car. The Forte model includes front and side...

French Design, expensive parts and servicing costs

I have owned two Xsara's, both excellent for my everyday needs. My first Xsara was a Y reg in Wicked red metallic, came with electric windows, one electric mirror, air con, 4 airbags, rear headrests and the list continues.... As usual a diverted drive around a industrial estate ended up with me...

“CITROEN XSARAS ARE THE BEST”

published 06/11/2000

stylish, comfortable

none

The Citroen Xsara is by the far the best familiy saloon on the market at present. It beats all of the Ford models in my opinion. The shear style, comfort and space is spectacular for its price band. My Xsara was the best choice of car for me. Travelling long distances it is really comfortable...

However ,for a while it didn't seem right it was struggling to accelerate...

Excellent car at a fantastic price

None

I have just said goodbye to my old Seat car and I am still all excited with my new Xsara 1.4. It is a fantastic car and really good value for money. It is stylish, comfortable and the specifications are great. It hold the road superbly and the air conditioning system makes life so much more...

I have covered 43,000 miles in my Xsara 1.4LX. Apart from some minor niggles (indicator stalk failed and a minor misfire on 2 occasions) no problems or breakdowns. Lovely car to drive, comfortable and smooth and an average fuel consumption of 41mpg despite being driven fairly fast. Road holding...

questionable reliability in an accident

Last Thursday I was travelling on a local motorway when I suddenly had to swerve to avoid a barrel in the road. The brakes locked and the car spun out of control and went up and embankment and did a complete rollover. Granted I was driving between 60 and 70 miles per hour,but what got my...

Our Xsara is the 2litre diesel estate version and would be R reg if it didnt have an cherished plate on it. We bought it 2 years ago from a guy that sells ex company cars. It now has 123k on the clock and drives like it doesnt know this fact! It is probably the most reliable 'older' car we have...
