What's the old Citroen Xsara like?

Any bad reviews on a low mileage Citroen Xsara, coupe and hatchback-saloon? Looking at 2002 to 2006 with 1.4-litre petrol engines.

Hi Tony,

Not a bad old lump, the Xsara, but watch for failing clutches, sagging suspension and dodgy electrics. Actually, you could be better off tracking down a well-cared for ZX hatch - they're a little more mechanically robust, and they're much more fun to drive than the Xsara, especially the desirable Volcane.
