2004 Citroen C2 VTR 1.6 16v from UK and Ireland
A fun car that has speed and style LOVE IT!
The only real problem that I have had with the car is the rear brakes. I have had the car back to my local dealer and they still are unsure on how to resolve the binding of the rear brakes. The dealer has replaced the rear discs as well as the pads, but still not resolved the problem.
The sensodrive is great fun and really adds to the cheeky character of the car. It is also great when driving down the country lanes with all that gear changing and is toped off brilliantly with the paddles behind the steering wheel.
The auto mode is practical and great when stuck in traffic.
Inside the cabin is funky and best I have seen on the market! It doent have all that boring black and grey its bright and bold. It has lots of space and feels well made. When travelling at high speeds you don't get much road noise either.
The VTR is really quick and you can push the 1.6 engine right through the revs and its surprisingly quick, and far faster then the stats read in the mags.
Head turner! One thing with the C2 is it really gets heads turning and that's probably down to the 16inc alloys and body styling!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

In relation to the post above - if you really believe your C2 VTR can do the 0-60 in 8.2secs, I'll trust you can just beat similar stat cars such as the Audi TT180 then? I think not naive boy! The VTS is that fast, but not the VTR.

I'm sorry, but the Citroen "flappy paddle" gearbox is nothing short of atrocious. Gear changes take so long, it seems like you have to post a letter to Citroen to ask them to change for you. The eager 1.6 engine is held back by this lump of nonsense too.
