2007 Citroen C1 Vibe 1 litre 12v 3 cylinder from UK and Ireland
The future of cheap and fun motoring
Slight rattle from dash on crumbly road surfaces. Will get that addressed at its first service.
We got the car brand new for £5,795. The Road tax is £35 per year, and a full tank (current cost about £35 to fill) gets us 400 miles!
Nimble handling, but bumpy ride. Lovely steering feel, and lots of grip. The economy is amazing, and the car is brimming with character, as its growly little engine pulls the car really well, and makes the car seem faster that it is.
It cruises long distances no problems, it only seems bad if you are used to a Bentley, but I have only owned cheap cars so this is good in comparison!!
Build quality for the price is exceptional, and the safety features are very good indeed, as the car has 4 star NCAP, and stability control.
The boot is tiny, but I don't need a big boot.
The size of the car is great for parking.
Overall, this car is absolutely brilliant in every way. The little problems such as the ride quality and rattling dash are forgiven when you have to fill her up, or pay for road tax!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
