Summary:

Awesome first car, and want to keep it as long as I'm alive!

General Comments:

Wonderful first car, easy and fun to drive.

Seats are very comfortable, and the front ones have the feeling of race seats.

Not the biggest of cars, so it's easy to park.

Full throttle and left some Mercedes and BMW's thinking W*F!

140kmh and doesn't even shake, but braking becomes a challenge.

I bought the car, after 4 owners, for 1200€, and have I have spend 500€ in some "minor" fixes. But overall I'm happy.

With 120hp and 220km/h, I think there's nothing more to tell, only a few Mercedes or BMWs pass by me.

From Portugal, happy new year to you all.

Summary:

Fantastic

Faults:

Nothing

General Comments:

Oil and gasoline (petrol) unleaded, and it is so fast for a small motor, sometimes I get surprised at the amount of energy that it can put into driving (kick ass).

I'm planning to buy the Saxo 1.4i VTR, now I can only imagine what it will be with a 1.4i, 75 horse power.

Attention: no one is paying me to say this, but I think I've got a fantastic car, especially in the interior, a good finish with quality, not those plastics that look like they came from my water bottles or Coca Cola cans. There are ways to recycle plastic without the final product looking cheap.
