I’m afraid its time to say goodbye to our 2000 Citroen Xantia. I love this car. We are the second owners since 2003 and she’s served us well. She is absolutely perfect on the inside but really crappy on the outside. The paint has developed a matt appearance due to the gloss coat festering.
There’s been a slight shunt in the back. The passenger side window requires a new electric mechanism (supplied). The horn doesn’t work, nor do the front windscreen washers (a hose disconnection). The windscreen is pitted and won’t pass a RWC.
Other than that, I still love this car and drive it to Melbourne from Trentham (100kms) twice a week. I’m getting 700 to 800 kms per tank. It runs beautifully, is regularly serviced and has had new tyres and cam belts replaced in recently. Full service book history is documented.
I would be very disappointed to see her used as a parts car, maybe someone could give her a little TLC so that she may see out the rest of her life in the hands of a younger family member who needs an inexpensive car. I can use whatever is offered to lavish on my dear Celeste (1949 Traction).
Price: Let’s start with $1000 OBO. Vin: VF7X1RFVM72279950. Reg due Feb 2018. 174,000 kms
