1997 Citroen Saxo VTR 1.6 from Netherlands
Little pocket rocket, especially if the engine doesn't suffer idling problems
Idling problems at low temperatures. When the engine is still cold, it tends to stall. The spark plug cables have been changed, but this hasn't solved the problem.
The radiator was changed, because the cooling block was corroded.
The first owner had some problems with the brake disks, the rear disks have been changed.
I really like the Saxo VTR. Mine is a little bit tuned, with a sports filter and a ECU 'manipulator' for more torque in mid rev sections. Great stuff, and it's quite cheap to run!
Unfortunately, it's quite cramped inside. As a tall driver you wouldn't prefer the Saxo to buy, for small families there are better choices.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
