2001 Citroen Saxo 1.6 from UK and Ireland
Excellent drive, very fast, but doesn't have the strongest bodywork ever, so try and avoid crashing
Nothing major has actually gone wrong with the, that would not be expected and that also couldn't be rectified.
I have had a new clutch and gearbox, which wasn't cheap, but is an inevitable problem that will eventually occur with most cars no matter how new.
Lately the car has been stuttering whilst in motion, and only when the accelerator is down.
I beleive this is due to often running on low fuel (seeing as I spent over £800 on the clutch and gearbox), and left over substances from the fuel have been regurgitated through the fuel filter and through the engines system.
This could be easily rectified with either a new fuel filter or a thorough clean of the fuel filter itself.
The problem can be prevented by trying to keep the fuel level as high as possible.
Other than the minor problems with my fuel filter, the car has ran like a dream.
It can take off as well, leaving many trailing cars in it's dust.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

You are joking right, 53000 and a new clutch and gearbox are inevitable replacements?
I got over 63,000 out of a Metro clutch, gearbox and waterpump, and that was still going when I sold the car, and that was a real BL pile of crap, still better than french built cars it seems.
I drive a Honda Civic now, so I know about true engineering genius without the vain badge snobbery that goes with it.

I get a knocking noise on the rigth front wheel most of the time.
