2000 Citroen Saxo VTR 1.6i from UK and Ireland
Performance and looks at a good price
Faulty fuel filter at 18,000 miles. Replacement required temporary removal of the fuel tank which was costly in terms of labour at the dealer.
Although seen by many as a boy racer's car because of it's looks, performance and pricing, the Saxo VTR is a real gem of a car for many reasons.
My wife has owned this VTR for 2 years now and apart from never breaking down or failing to start, it has cost very little to run and needed no major mechanical work.
The VTR is quick, performs well in corners and has adequate brakes for the engines power. The interior is good, but maybe cramped for 3/4 adults on a lengthy journey.
Good motor, recommend it hands down, but shop around and buy a 'non boy-racer' unmodified example, it will be worth the wait and possible extra expense.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
