The car is sure footed with enough 'feel' through the steering wheel to be able to hustle the car along when required.

Citroën Xsara Hatchback (00-04)

Value

5 out of 5

Citroen's 'cash back' scheme reduces the cost of the car when new and cuts the depreciation costs.

Costs

4 out of 5

3 year guarantee ensures no repair costs, fuel consumption is about 47/48 miles to the gallon (actual). Service costs are reasonable at £110 to £150, though the 3rd year service is pricey I hear.

Driving

4 out of 5

The car is sure footed with enough 'feel' through the steering wheel to be able to hustle the car along when required.

Performance

4 out of 5

Perfectly okay for day to day driving. I find the HDi engine has plenty of torque for driving up and down hills here in the South West and have never had a problem overtaking.

Reliability

5 out of 5

Hasn't let me down in over 20000 miles+

Don't buy one of these to turn heads.

Comfort

4 out of 5

Whether over long or short journeys, I find the seating and driving position comfortable for my 6ft 3inch frame. My car has never suffered the squeaks and rattles described by other reviewers.
