1990 Citroen AX GT 1.4 Carb from UK and Ireland
A future classic - Citroen's original hot hatch
As expected, all 4 wheels corroded.
The pistons in the rear brakes went.
Apart from wear and tear, nothing really bad.
I'm impressed - fast and reliable.
Doesn't corner as well as some people think, my girlfriend's Ford KA handles better. But they are getting on a bit.
You must fit a PiperX filter and if possible a full system with 4-2-1 manifold, you will notice it.
These cars do need looking after - I change the oil every 2000 miles, HT's every 6000 miles etc. Be careful where you park them - they dent like a Coke can!
Good examples are becoming hard to find, it will be a future classic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
