    Default Xantia with good al4 now wrecking

    This Xantia just came in.
    This car belonged to a good friend of mine so we know the service history is exceptional. It had a new transmission fitted last year.

    He was stopped at a red light and got rear ended and shoved into the intersection, lucky he wasn't hit again.
    By the time he got out the car reversed back and took off, he never saw it or the driver.

    Xantia is stuffed, the roof is badly kinked so its back is broken.

    Jeff got out without a scratch after quite a hard hit with shows how good these cars are when the car obsorbed the impact not the driver, in the past he would certainly have some sort of whip lash.

    Default AL4 transmission

    Is there such a thing as a good (well behaved!) al4 automatic transmission.

    On a positive note, no whiplash or other personal body damage and the steering wheel will not need to be refurbished.

    Another of the best models that PSA has produced has bit(ten) the dust.

    This is probably the best you'll get. The AL4 has done about 50,000km since new. Not since it was recoed, I mean since it was brand new. The cars done a little over 200,000

    The AL4 come out of a 406 that had done just under 20,000 when it was written on, we put it in the Xantia about 18 months ago and Jeff's done about 30,000 in that time.

    The Xantia still drives fine, in fact I'm driving it home over Xmas because of storage problems here at work, to drive it you wouldn't know it had been hit.

    Except the boot doesn't close so it continuously beeps at you!
