A great fun, superb looking car
Water pump failed at 15,000 miles.
I loved this car. This is the second new Saxo VTR I have owned in 3 years. The first was Persian red and the most recent one was silver.
I found reliability to be excellent. My only niggle was when the windows were wound down half way, they rattled like mad. I had my temperature gauge replaced by my dealer (Lincoln) which improved the reading (although I gather it's nothing to worry about if it runs higher).
I've just bought a Peugeot 206 2.0 HDi at the weekend (cheaper running costs), but already I'm missing the look of those lovely alloy wheels and the way the VTR used to corner. I'm having withdrawal symptoms. The VTR is a seriously fun car - a pleasure to drive.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
