Buying advice Xsara HDI

Post by volcane305 » 11 Sep 2002, 14:56

Hi all
After much sweating I still haven't been able to return my volcane to its former glory(found too much rust also) i also haven't been able to find a replacement that isn't wrecked. I have test driven the Bora and the new Ibiza which was good esp the 130 but too small. I have decided to go for a xsara 110 hdi sx. I hope to pick one up for not more than 8k about 18 months old and 20k miles. Does anyone have any experience with the 110 xsara, what should I look out for? I especially hate rattles does the xsara rattle. Has anyone moved from a Volcane td to a Xsara? will I have to drive like a granny in the xsara?
All help welcome"!

THe Xsara is pretty much the ZX, most of the chassis has remained the same(the early Zsara used the ZX floorpan), it will rattle a lot less than the ZX as well, the interiors are lovely. Go down to a dealership have a look around one, get a test drive, it won't cost you anything. As for performance, the HDi is supprisingly quick, so I've been told<img src=icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>
