What should I be looking for?

Recommended Posts

Hi guys. 

I'm thinking about purchasing a mark 1 xantia(1996). It has the XUD9 engine and although I've done some research into these cars I just thought I'd ask the experts rather than a computer. 

Is the anything in particular I should be looking out for, common problems/issues. Anything that would make or break the purchase. 

Thanks, Jordan.

Obvious things for such an old car is the condition and if you can get parts. You will need to make sure everything works so test it all, electrics, suspension, bodywork, engine wear (oil use/burning), brakes/handbrake, MOT tests results (look at the gov site which shows MOT history and fails/advisory items).
