1988 Citroen AX 11 TRE 1.1 benzine
Poison from the small bottle
At 50000 km the electronics started acting a little naughty, but wasn't much of a problem actually.
The headlamps (left) died at about 60000 km.
The ventilator went off at 75000 km.
Everything is perfect otherwise.
The car is very light and it has good brakes.
Handling is great, however the suspension is much too soft.
If driven easily, it isn't hungry for more than about 5.5 liters per 100 kms, otherwise around 7.
The gearbox has only 4 speeds and that turns out to be a problem when driving at 150 km/h (it reaches 5000 RPM then) or when driving slow (20, 25 km/h) because of its low torque.
The best part is its engine. Small, but pulls this little car quite fast. I dared to race much stronger cars because of it!
The seats are much too soft and the steering wheel is too thin.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
