1997 Citroen Saxo VTR 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland
Simply the best car for insurance group 7!!!
Rear bumper laquer has started to peel off, only on the corner, this can be sorted out easily by using a spray of clear paint laquer.
Stereo didn't work, and was wired all wrong from the inside of the car.
Cat needs replacing at 28 on most cars if not treated respectfully.
Sunroof creaks when opened and closed.
The car is amazing for the insurance group...only group 7! My very old Nova SR was higher than that, and a lot less powerful or as impressive.
I bought the car in the intention to modify it, I've changed the wheels over to 15" from the standard 14" to add extra grip and better appearance, and also the stereo has been changed.
A must is to change the rear panel speakers as these will blow if any kind of power is put through them, get some 6x9 speakers and get them flushed with the rear parcel shelf.
Sorted little car that can't be beaten on price!
The new Corsa is £11k standard... the new VTR with a higher spec and sporty edition is only £10.5k.... explain that Vauxhall!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
