    Default This Xantia is to good to wreck.

    I was afraid this might happen.

    This beautiful black Xantia just came in. one owner and done 160,000km and drives beautifully.

    Problem is only a leaking water pump. Well its leaking from down that area somewhere so we are guessing its the pump.

    Owner took it to his regular garage who had been servicing it for years only to get told that Ateco are no longer and you can't get parts for Citroens any more so you'd better sell it to a wrecker while you can.

    All I can say is what a bastard thing to say to him, he's bought a new Ford now even though the pump is just a Peugeot part and no problems with supply.

    Look at the pictures its really a nice car. I'd be happy to get $880 for it. ($800 plus GST)

    Look at the picture of the engine, it was running when I took the picture and you hear how quiet it runs.

    Everyone's a comedian!

    I showed the pictures to Julie and she said: "Nup, too big". I tried!

    Well Dave all I can say is I do not know how people like that stay in business & that maybe he was trying to nick it for himself.

    The wheel does turn though -for some it will come all of a sudden-not your fault though is it.

    Hope it finds a nice home.

    Pekay.

    I've just been told we have another Xantia to collect. This one is a series 2 wagon, drives fine but will need a battery as its been sitting a few months. No other details until I see it.
