2000 Citroen Saxo VTR 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland
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

Not driven a Zetec-S have you...?
I binned my VTS and got one, they may be a bit slower standard, but you can soon remedy that with chip etc. A Zetec-S will run rings around a VTS because of the suspension setup. Also a nice trait the Ford has, is that is doesn't fall to bits and break down every day. Look at the comments on this site, Saxo's are motorised dustbins. How Citroen get away with selling such dross is outrageous.
