    wowowowow - not bad at all!

    The Xantia is one reliable car, apparently Citroen had Mazda or another Jap manufacturer look through it, before releasing it.

    Isn't there any truth to this? or just a rumour?

    Wow thats amazing!

    Im seriously considering a Xantia, just such good value for money IMO considering what you get features wise certainly alot cheaper than the 306's which i have been trying to find

    I might be joining the Sicktron...I meant Citroen marque!

    Can't remember the details but I know Porsche had Toyote go over their whole operation(?) a few years back, so anything's possible.

    It WAS Mazda. Around the time that Mazda had the 323 Astina with the pop up lights.

    They looked at areas like the dashboard design. I remember reading it in Wheels etc.

    Best car I've ever bought - they're a treat to drive, and generally quite well appointed. And so far everything I've read about excellent reliability and build quality has been quite true. Fingers crossed...
