2002 Citroen Saxo VTR 1.6 8v from UK and Ireland
An economical pocket rocket
Passenger seat would not lock in position after tilting the seat forward. This was repaired under warranty, but should really have been picked up on the pre-delivery inspection.
During cold weather I noticed that the windows would mist up badly. After a bit of a rummage around I found the carpet in the drivers foot well to be wet. A leak was traced to the bulkhead seal which was again repaired under warranty.
It sticks to the road like s**t to a blanket.
Performance is more than adequate and fuel economy is good as long as you don't drive like a dick all of the time.
As it is only in group 7 the insurance isn't too bad.
As I only paid £7344 (in black, including mats, locking wheel nuts and delivery) for the car, it is one of the best bargains I have ever had.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Had the same probs with misting up. I cleaned the windows, some the dealer didn't do! sorted it. I found the VTR quite slow really, VTS is the one to have except for the ins group-14!
As for the way you drive it-they're designed to be driven by dicks!
