Citroen Xsara Getting Ready For Around The World Journey

Post by 40075trip »

Hello My Friends! :P
My name is Isaac Mor I'm and I'm a new member of this awesome forum.
It was my dream and soon it's coming true, to drive from Israel to the northest point of Europe, Northcape in Norway, from there I will take a ship to North America, driving through USA all the way to Alaska, about 60K KM.
My car is Citroen Xsara 1.8 v16 manual gearbox year of 1998 with 212,000 KM on the clock. I love this car so much, it will be a huge achievement to get to the finish line with this car !!!
Me and my mechanic are always keeping the car in the best shape, maintaining with original parts only and best lubricants available.

Do you guys have some mechanical recommendations or advices for such a long journey?
Did anyone drove or transferred Citroen to North America before?
Any recommended shipping company from Europe to North America(Canada or USA)

Here is a link to my cars maintenance history for the last 40K KM : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0
You can also see the full route map and the process of getting ready in my blog : https://www.40075trip.com/blogs/adventure

Thank you for helping 8-)

Sounds like a great adventure. Some of the site guru's will be able to offer you some good general advice and anything specific in terms of maintenance.

Keep the updates regular and good luck with what sounds like an amazing adventure.

Sounds great. If i was doing this in a xsara i would either carry a set of front springs with me or replace them before i go. Also make sure the rear axle bearings are in good condition.
