Average performance for auto (AL4) gearbox which is terrible at shifting.

So far, mine has spent more time in the garage. 1 new gerabox, 1 new fuel pump, repaired oil leaks and suspension upgrades.

I think car is different and stands out in a crowd.

Comfort

3 out of 5

Seats could be a little more supportive at the sides, but other than that it is good. The manual box has a poorer driving position.

Having had 2 BXs and a Xantia, they have got this one really wrong for reliability.
