1993 Citroen AX 11 TRS 1.1L injection from Chile




- Cooling system leaks a bit (nothing serious).

- 2nd gear syncro doesn't work.

- Rare noises in the front.

- Injection relay gets stuck when you drive a lot. You need to unplug and plug when the engine doesn't start.

General Comments:

Cheap in every way.

Amazing handling.

Great suspension.

Quick car, beside the engine.

Nice to drive, always gets you a smile on country roads in Chile.

1993 Citroen AX Dimension 3 door 1.1i petrol from UK and Ireland


Ideal first car, wouldn't have had it any other way


The cambelt has pinged off once.

Replaced the battery once.

General Comments:

Brilliant little run around car.

However not suitable for dual carriageways or motorways; would be a great city car!

1993 Citroen AX GT 1.4 from UK and Ireland


Wicked car, but it's hard to find a good one


Air conditioning fans stopped working at 46k.

CV joint fell apart at 48k.

Fuel filler neck rotted out at 48k.

Alternator broke at 50k.

Fuel gauge never worked.

General Comments:

This was my first car and it was great fun, a real pocket rocket.

It was the GT engine with the GTI body kit (only 500 made like this). Handled really well and acceleration was really good. Top end was meant to be 120mph, but I never took it over 90mph, as it started to feel a bit light and would drift a bit.

Really nice dash and interior, which just felt like sitting in a little race car.

The boot was big enough for a boxed 15" sub, but the back seats were quite small unless you were a hobbit.

The car was pretty good when I got it, but things slowly started to go wrong.

Air conditioners stopped working, but I never bothered to fix them.

CV joint fell apart and was a nightmare to get a new one as Citroen wanted £110, so I went to the scrappage yard where I found out that the AX's used 5 different CV joints in two years, and there was no pattern to which one your car would have.

Fuel filler neck rotted out, which was connected to the filler pipe in a one piece; a real pain to get sorted, but didn't cost much.

Alternator broke, but was only £30 for a new one.

Had to take it off the road as the rust got too bad on the sills and arches, and was going to fix it, but got sent to Iraq with the army, and when I got back it was just too far gone to fix.

Really really loved this car, and wish I still had one. Have been looking for a good one for a few years, but they are very few and far between. All seem to be rusting on the rear aches.

1993 Citroen AX 1.1 First 1.1 from Norway


Fantastic simple trustworthy car


Only one thing, the alternator, and that is a normal wear and tear part for any car. Got a nother from the scrappy and swapped it in under one hour. £40

General Comments:

I was in need of a car and I thought of the AX. At first I was a bit sceptic as it isn't a "cool" car, it appeared a bit "plasticy" and low on quality, but I decided to take a closer look, and I ended up buying it. I have not regretted it.

The engine was surprisingly quick and it is a really fun car to drive. Small enough to fit every parking space, sneak through queues and sideways to pass the toll line for driving in the city centre. The size combined with excellent aerodynamics makes it also a very economical car, using between 5 and 7 litres on 100 kilometres. The plastic details is just the same as in all other regular cars in its class and model of year, and it is also surprisingly comfy with good Citroen seats. Again, it also feels surprisingly spacious to ride in, at least in the front seats.

The only downside is that if you were to crash you would most probably die as this car is so small..

I love it, bought this car for 350£, has never turned me down.
