Description for Citroen CX 25 GTI 1987

This Citroen CX is in really good shape as previous owners took good care of it. I first got the car in Sept. 2011 and drove it to work every other day or so, o weekend outings and car shows around the state, nd even won Junior and Senior Awards at AACA National Winter meets, s well as Silver Award at the Winter Park Concours d''Elegance. I grew up with Citroens and I learned to drive in a CX and missed driving one since relocating to theUS20+ years ago.
I had the Citroen Conservatory at the Citroen Heritage Museum near Paris certify that the car came out of the Citroen factory in January 1986 and was sold new in Belgium. From there it went to
Hollandfor modifications to meet US standards before being shipped to CX Automotive inNew Jersey. Build sheet show the original color as Bleu Romantique, ith following options: grey interior cloth, ir conditioning, utomatic transmission, ruise control, unroof, hermal insulation, lear coat paint. very unusual car in theUS.
A copy of the Haynes manual is included with the car, s well as shop manuals and parts diagrams on a USB drive.
The USB drive is loaded with French songs so you can get a beret, baguette, bottle of
Bordeauxand really play the part driving it!
The good:
• The paint is in excellent condition and shines. The car has been repainted in 2003 by the previous owner. The hood, oof and front fenders were repainted two summers ago after a fender bender.
• All rubber weather seals are in excellent condition.
• Rear window OEM louvers have been added.
• Dark tint on rear windows, edium on front side windows, elps keep the car cooler in summer.
• Interior in excellent condition.
• No crack on the dash or door panels.
• All seats were removed, heir covers washed, nd a layer of foam added to the top of the old seat foam, eat frames repainted and springs tightened.
• Carpet was cleaned.
• Engine runs really well and is completely sorted out.
• Injectors were professionally cleaned and tested.
• New fuel pump and filter.
• New spark plugs.
• New OEM air filter.
• New camshaft bearing and seal.
• All valves adjusted.
• Oil filter has been relocated from its unreachable original location in the back of the engine to the front by the air filterwith a kit. Makes oil changes a breeze!
• Cooling system flushed, hermostat replaced, ew coolant added. The car does not heat up even in FL summer.
• New muffler flexible connection between exhaust manifold and rest of muffler system.
• New transmission mount and top motor mount, he third mount under the engine was checked during engine removal and found to have been replaced by prior owner.
• Automatic transmission (ZF22) was rebuilt in October 2012 by a professional mechanic expert with the German ZF. OEM repair kit shipped from
Europewas used for the rebuild. New trans cooler lines and clamps installed. It works well now, hifts up/down through 3 gears without any issue.
• While engine was out for transmission repairs, ll engine hoses and wires were checked and replaced as needed, nd engine bay de-greased and cleaned.
• Hydraulic system was cleaned with specified fluid and refilled with new green LHM. All pipes were checked, ll brittle return lines replaced with PTFE lines, ll leaks fixed.
• Car goes up/down through all stages of the height adjustment and automatically as it gets loaded with weight.
• Rebuilt steering rack with new seals, perates as new, o leaks, teering returns to center and is speed controlled: the faster the car, he stiffer the steering.
• New brake rotors and pads on all four wheels. Excellent braking. No ABS on this car.
• Four new tires installed (195/70R14) less than 5,000 miles.
• AC works really well and blows cold. A shut-off valve was added on the hot water pipe that would otherwise negatively affect the cabin cooling: open in winter, losed in summer.
• All engine electrical connections were cleaned, reased, onnectors replaced if needed.
• All wires were checked for cracks, ear, nd were either replaced or recovered with heat shrink tubing.
• New battery installed 2013.
• Alternator replaced, long with large positive cable between it, he starter and the battery in 2013.
• Cooling fans operate both on temperature switch and when AC is turned on.
• All exterior lights work, ront headlights reflectors have been refinished.
• Horn works, iper works.
• All interior lights work, ront electric windows work (manual rear).
• Any light that could be replaced with LED has been. (Alternator dash light needs a normal lamp to close the alternator circuit and initiate charging, ED prevented this and alternator did not charged the battery, earned the hard way at night!) Rear tail lights can't be LED because of the low amps draw, he car's light bulb failure system thinks the bulbs have failed.
• Remote central lock/engine start disabling system (after market).
• New JVC FM/AM radio installed with CD/USB.
The bad:
• Cruise control does not work, ven with replaced vacuum diaphragm and despite vacuum pump operating. I managed to get it to work twice only for a brief moment. I suspect an electrical issue in the controller.
• Sunroof used to leak despite a new seal, o I disconnected the power to the roof switch and sealed it shut with a foam backer rod and black silicon. This is a clean job that can be reversed.
• Day/trip odometer not working. Got stuck on zero about a year ago when reset button was pushed. Regular odometer and speedometer works fine.
• Mileage on the odometer shows 96,000 but it has been replaced by the previous owner when the original failed at 138,000 miles. Records show this one had 88,000 miles when installed which brings the actual mileage of the car to about 146,000.
• Rear window defrost does not work, nable to find the fault.
• LCD clock does not work.
• Small paint bubbling on front side doors at the bottom (so small the AACA judges did not see it).
• The wheel lug nuts could use refinishing.
