Fog lamps filled with water and refused to work ever since.
Radiator leaked from day one, thermostat was replaced four times.
Plastic skirts fell off the passenger side, which took a small fortune to replace and many hours of struggling to attach to the car.
Rear windscreen wiper ran intermittently, especially in winter.
Electric windows were slow and sometimes clunky.
Small stone chips on the bonnet turned into rust far too easily. Garage said that the paint job done on the bonnet was of poor quality.
Dashboard and door-pockets rattled even on the smoothest of surfaces.
As most of my friends had owned AX GT's in one shape or form, I decided to go for that model that was just a little different from all the others.
Had an A.A. check on the vehicle, who said that it was a sound car and although at the time of purchasing had a few minor faults, with them corrected by the garage, was worth the money.
This car never failed to make me smile. Every-time you sit in the seat of an AX GT you know you are going to enjoy the journey.
For the size of the engine, this pocket-rocket shifts like nothing I've ever driven - early Golf's, XR3's, XR2's and SR's alike.
Honestly, other drivers will be amazed to see a tiny Citroen out strip them up the motorway slip road or along a dual carriageway.
Problems start, as they did with my pals vehicles, at around 70,000 miles. Until then, I had very few problems, but since then it felt as though the car was gradually falling apart.
Problems aside, I can't recommend these cars enough. If you want value, thrills and exceptional handling, then look no further than an AX.
