The car is great, no wonder it's sold more than any other small hatch. It's quick off the mark and pulls in high revs, even though it's only an 8 valve.
It's quicker than my mates Fiesta Zetec 1.6, and leaves most other small cars for dead.
The inside grows on you, and is plain, yet looks great.
The seats are good, although being 6 foot 2, there is little head room. People complain about the pedal position, although I got used to it and don't even notice now.
I love the look of the car, and there are many performance parts available, should anyone want them.
For £9500, it's very good for the money. Compare it to all the other cars you can get for the money.
When parts do run out, they are bound to be cheap, as there's so many of us Saxo lovers out there.
It's not German build quality or the many gadgets of Japanese cars, but for the cash, it's the best car I could imagine driving.
