1990 Citroen AX Salsa 1.1 unleaded from UK and Ireland
A turbo go-kart that falls to bits with age!
The main problem I keep on having is that the down pipes keep on cracking and then snapping off just under the manifold. I have had this problem 4 times now and the car is currently off the road with this problem.
The dash lights won't work so I'm going to have it looked at.
The front left hub has recently given in and that has got to be replaced.
I am on my 5th Alternator which is really taking the mick.
I am on my 2nd battery.
I am also having problems with my left front window, it doesn't like to be wound up any more.
The side mirror's levers have both snapped.
And last but not least, the starter motor is on its way out.
The seat's are really comfortable and the interior decorations are fantastic in comparison to most standard designs.
Though the handling is really bad and becomes even worse when there are passengers.
The car as a whole is extremely fast and nippy for a 1.1 liter and shocks most people with its stupidly fast acceleration from a standing start. This really is to be expected for a car with a completely plastic tailgate.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
