Advice for buyers

What should I look for in a used Citroën Xsara hatchback?

Many new Xsaras were bought cheaply by owners strapped for cash and it's quite possible that servicing has been skimped.

Patchy work early on accelerates engine wear and probably means a clogged-up radiator and worn brakes. Buy a Xsara only if there are good service records, backed by bills for work.
