Problems with my Citroen AX Debut since June 2005.
~The hose clip was loose on the radiator.
~The air cleaner housing seal was missing.
And most recently the problems in order being:
~Small oil leak from around the cylinder head gasket area.
~The engine seems to fade and die when sitting idle, e.g. in a queue of traffic. I have been recommended to change the quality of unleaded petrol I use in my car from supermarkets fuel to Shell, BP etc. And also to use a higher octane fuel.
~I have also noticed a very tiny amount of a leak coming from the windscreen washers tank... but nothing too bad.
I am really impressed with this car. I bought it to learn to drive in... I have done that and I still don't want to sell it!! It may only have a 954cc engine and 4 gears, but it still gets up to at least 85mph uphill on the motorway! (until I notice and slow down again!)
I really do recommend this car for new drivers/learners, because:
~it is easy to drive.
~cheap (only about £25 to fill the tank about every 3-4 weeks)
~insurance is really cheap because of the tiny engine.
~it is quick and NIPPY!!
(Nippy being the nickname I have given my car!!)
