Only buy if your 17-19 and less than 6'
Coil pack went after 60,000 miles.
I've just sold my Saxo Furio after 6 years and 112,000 miles.
I love this car, for a 1.4 its nippy and pokey around town, but perhaps "feels" quicker than it is due to its size.
Handles very well with minimal body roll, however it was terrible in the wet, even with expensive low profile tyres on 15" alloys.
With a decent set of wheels it looks fantastic, the same as a vtr/s. The only difference to the keen observer is drums on the rear not pads and discs.
Cheap to run, cheap to buy, cheap to insure, very reliable.
I just wished 6 years ago I bought the VTS.
Overall a great 1st car, very basic inside, but this is reflected in the original price.
Not good for tall people or anyone over 20.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
