Other Citroën Xsara (2000 - 2004) models:

  • Summary

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What does this car say about you?

    I really don't know as I'm a typical woman, as long as the car takes me from A to B trouble-free, I am happy.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    I don't know or care what people think, as it is a car that I'm happy with

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    If the next car gives me as little problem as this current one, I would be more than happy to buy another one.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    If money was no object, I think I would buy a Mazda6 as the shape of it is really nice and all the colours that I have seen with that make is pretty good looking.

    Type of dealer you bought from?


    Did you buy this car new?


    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    May 2007

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    I had an average deal, as my credit rating wasn't fantastic. I didn't have to put in any deposit or part exchange, plus I got 6 months' tax with it, and 12 months' MOT.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    I needed a car fast.

    What was the dealer like?

  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    The suspension is quite hard, so I do feel all the bumps I hit on the road, the seats are not very comfortable so after a few hours you do need to stop to do some stretching.

    What's it like to park?

    I find the back of the car is very deceiving, it's shorter than it looks but otherwise it is very easy to park.

  • Living with it

    5 out of 5 5.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Since I'd bought the car, I had the normal wear and tear, replaced both side of the suspensions, wipers, rear brakes, and oil change.

    What's most practical about your car?

    It is diesel and it is very ecominical, even after having the car for over 6 years now.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The fact that it has 2 lighter sockets so I can charge my mobile phone while driving and listen to my iPod on the other connection.
