2000 Citroen Saxo VTR 1.6 petrol from UK and Ireland
No comfort, no power
Paint came off the front bumper at only 3 weeks old.
The coil burnt out.
Needed new bushes at only 2500 miles.
I think Saxo VTR's are totally rubbish, there's no comfort and the handling is crap. I certainly wouldn't buy another one even if they were only £4000 new.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I totally agree with the comments above, I have a VTR and it has given me no problems, no loss of paint but loads of power... for a Insurance G7.

Too right! We've just bought a VTR and it's great. Stacks of power for its group and no paint problems at all!

I have had problems with the paint on the front bumper which seems to be a common problem on the VTR/VTS.

Do you really think that the comments made were genuine? My opinion is that it's just some prat who thinks it's funny to add a comment cos they've just learnt to write.

Well I have had my Saxo since March 00 & it came with 1 years warranty. It went in more times than I can think of with so many problems... I wouldn't go as far as saying... never buy one again, but it really upsets you that once the car is sold they just don't give a damn!!

Fair enough if a few people have had troubles with new vtr's, all makes of car have a few new ones with small problems to start with. but in general VTR's are amazing, the handling is not rubbish, its quality, the girls love them. yes. thank you.
