Ignition coil fail at 60.000 km.
Spark plugs were changed together with the ignition coil.
Timing belt was changed as a part of the deal when I bought it at 54.000km (just in case).
Normally I only drive Citroën and I have not driven anything else in the last 10 years.
Due to job change, I had to have a smaller and more economical car.
I has always liked the Twingo and I have rented them many times during holidays in Gran Canaria.
Since I could not find a small suitable Citroen, the choice fell on a 2001 Twingo 1.2 16v imported from France.
My Twingo has the 75 HP engine and front seats from the R Clio.
I ride 123 km on highways every day. Yes it is not as comfy and silent as my XM, but it is fast and nippy in heavy traffic, and the mileage of a liter of gasoline, is very good.
Then driven gently, it runs 17km pr. liter and driven hard, you only get 14km pr. liter.
The build quality is very good and being used to French cars, I would even say high!
The body is galvanized with a 12 year warranty, and being 7 years old, there is no sign of rust yet.
One can with ease find room for 4 adults and a little luggage.
If you have had a Twingo Series 1 between your hands for a while, you would very well understand why it has become a cult car. It grows on you!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
