1993 Citroen AX Neon 954cc from UK and Ireland
The best decision I ever made
A few problems with battery connections, but these were easily resolved by a good mechanic.
The paintwork is beginning to peel in some places, such as the driver door and boot.
An ongoing worry is the way the car is affected by high winds, which can make for unnerving driving.
This car is really cheap to run, the insurance is a bargain due to the small engine and I can do over 300 miles on a full tank of petrol (costing £25!)
All in all it has been a very reliable car, and was extremely cheap to repair after a shunt in the rear, as the boot is made of fibreglass.
It goes surprisingly fast considering the tiny engine as the car is so light although the speed can be affected considerably by carrying more than 1 passenger.
The car is comfortable for driver and passengers, but I would not recommend it for anyone who considers themselves tall as there is not much space in the cockpit. Ideal if you're short like me though as everything is within reach - even the passenger window winder!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

What on earth is a Cylanoid? Sounds like something from Dr.Who!
