1995 Citroen AX Tonic 1.1E


Cheap and reliable


Speedometer stopped working whilst driving the car back from Switzerland in one go. 22 hours of fun!

Horn gave up the ghost!

Stereo (after market) bad connection on the rear connector... not a problem.

General Comments:

Very good economy.

Reasonable handling except braking at high speed.

Unusual driving position.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

1988 Citroen AX 14 TZS 1.4 petrol (carburettor)


Practical and fun to drive


Front suspension became worn out after about 115000 km, although some bearings were already replaced.

Front brake discs became warped quite quickly.

Radiator started leaking (could be fixed with a sealing fluid).

Due to poor build quality, there was a lot of rattling, and many broken plastic pieces.

Driver's seat was completely worn out (not only the cushions, the frame as well). And I'm no heavyweight, neither is the previous owner.

General Comments:

In many places, the car is built too light, and assembled poorly.

Otherwise, it's a very cheap-to-run car that provides a lot of fun.

Its go-kart-like roadholding makes it fun to drive.

The seats are not made for long travel, and back legroom is quite restricted.

The boot is very practical, versatile and amazingly large for such a small car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
