1999 Citroen Saxo West Coast 1.4i petrol from UK and Ireland
Kid-friendly fun run-around car
The model that I test-drove had tilt 'n' slide seats. The model I bought did not.
Drivers' door does not close properly - badly seated. This means that it is incredibly easy to break into.
Compact Disc stereo skips a lot - even on the flat.
Engine is a little rattly at low revs.
Much fun to drive around town and country, especially for one person. Not so good on the motorway.
Very kid-friendly - the colourful insides and seat-belts are a hit.
Growly engine gives great enjoyment.
The headroom is poor for tall people. If you're over 6 foot 2 tall, it's a squeeze.
I paid £10500 for Mango West Coast with gold alloy wheels. The dealers' finance deal is a whopping 20.9% APR. So, don't go for dealers' finance.. : (
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Good review, couldn't agree more about the VTR responding well to being pushed - great fun.
My '97 VTR driver's well also leaks badly after heavy rain. Haven't done anything about it as garages will charge £40 just to look at it. Anyone know of a fix for this problem??
