Ah the CX was a popular car over here (not quite a DS though :0)...
My father's car is an 89 AX... About the same size as a Rabbit 5 doo...r 80+ 
mpg. My parents love all the parcel shelving. The fault does not strike me 
as being air leak related. It runs perfectly and is renowned for being 
'nippy' but has developed this surge that started off happpenig once every 
six months or so but now 2 years on is happening once a week. It lasts for 
about 10 to 20 seconds and then reverts to normal. Citroen garage hadn't 
heard of it before and nor the Lucas service centre; but they admitted any 
faulty pumps get total innard replacement to cover any problems. So if it 
was a spring problem it would  get changed out with the other more common 
2 Dasher Wagons eh? Do they have the 'factory' roof rack? The best roof rack 
ever produced by Audi/VW IMHO...
Oh I bet they have a/c too... :o(
