Faults:

Gear linkage changed after 15 000km. No other problems yet (35 000km).

General Comments:

It is cheap and reliable car. The best car you can find for that money.

The problem could be the price of spare parts, but don't buy them at an authorized dealer.

It is nice to drive it, but it's slow when three or more people are in .

Oh yes, the brakes are too soft.

It's very economical (average: 100 km/5 lit.). I have it for three years and now I know I did the right thing by buying this car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Also from Croatia; bought an AX spot a year ago. The previous owner did not take too much care about it, but I want him good-looking and healthy, and don't mind spending sometimes rather large amounts of money to do so. I simply love the little thing.

In the future, the plan is to change the engine with a more lively 1.1i TU1 Saxo engine with electronic fuel injection and a five-speed gearbox. A lot of work, I admit, but I like challenges. Anyway, good luck with your petit Citroen.
