1987 Citroen CX Review
Grrr. — This car is annoying. Very annoying. I bought it with the intention of it being a really useful daily driver. It had everything I needed: A powerful TurboDiesel engine, a large loadspace and Citroen hydraulics for a comfortable self-levelled ride. Within a week the head gasket blew after a small hose burst. Although I smelled hot coolant, there was nowhere safe to stop immediately, and by the time I had, the engine had overheated. So at the moment, the best view of it is with the bonnet up.
Pros: Fantastic to drive
Cons: It doesn't drive at the moment.

Great long distance with a style and design that was way ahead of its time. Hydropneumatic suspension ensures the ride is like a flying carpet. Bumps! What bumps? Fantastic breaks to. They really bite... Read More
My First Cx
This is the first CX I've owned, and one of many now. How I came by it is a very long story and one that isn't relevant here, but it was free. It's an interesting and historically important car, as it... Read More

Makes You Feel Like A French President
This is the "Prestige" variety of the CX, extra long and with lots (I mean LOTS) of extra space in the back seat. The model served french presidents for years and it's a great car both to drive an... Read More
