1997 Citroen Saxo VTR 1.6i petrol from UK and Ireland
A fun driveable car for all ages
Had a set of new tires on the front.
Had an oil seal replaced.
Passenger door hinge cracked - needed re-welding.
Front nearside fog-light needed connection replacing.
Boot light connection stopped working.
Really impressed with the performance of the 8v engine. Havn't had a chance to experience a VTS, although I intend to.
Can keep up with most cars on acceleration, and can live with most cars when flat out.
The chuckability of the car is a dream, just point the wheels where you want and it responds. Handling is superb, even in wet conditions.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I had my cylinder head gasket go as well, around 30,000 miles. I've also got a bad leak in my radiator and had to replace the front discs.
Fast indeed but the build quality is poor.
