The car is great, I would reckon most young drivers would be able to buy one especially with the deals they are giving away.
I got a new one, the window wiper motor went in the first week but all was OK (they fixed it but gave me a Skoda for 3 days).
It's a great buy and bags of fun, it's very near the VTR (mines badged up as one, no one can tell), but get the Poseiden Blue with Ricochet interior.
Anyway, good luck Saxo fans & keep up the good work Citroen.
Anybody with the slightest gumption will be able to tell that you are not in a VTR. A) because of the savage interior that you have and B) because you have rear brake drums not disks.
I think only people who really know what they are on about and know Citroen cars would be able to tell the difference. So what about VTR drivers, just VTS wannabe's! I think so.
My saxo is an 1.1 litre its quite nippy I raced an 1.3 civic with my piper cross induction kit so lads go for it...
Hi. I just wanted to know if you think it's a good idea for me to have a Saxo Furio as a first car. I put a deposit on it yesterday, but after reading these comments it's changing my mind. Please get back to me, as I haven't the slightest clue about cars. E-mail me if possible Welsh_Female@hotmail.com
Yeah go for it. The Furio is an amazing car, I was £500 short a few months ago and had to go for the pre-face lifted Saxo 1.4 West Coast with the naff interior, otherwise the same car as the later Furio. It has VTR badges, wheels and rear spoiler and I'm on the lookout for VSX/VTR/VTS door trims and seats at the right price. Regarding that guy's request for VTR badges- you can find them cheaply on ebay, however a lot of pauper Saxo owners have the same idea as you and bids usually amount to about £13 just for a set of door badges. Funny how VTS owners don't swap their badges for "East Coast" isn't it?
I've had my Furio a few months now and its the best car I've ever driven. Very nippy for a 1.4 and very cheap on insurance (a group lower than the VTR)... its great so far, would highly recommend it, especially as a first car!!!
I've had my Citroen Saxo Furio 1.4i 51 reg for 8 months now and its been a great first car for me. I am 18 so the insurance group has to be low, the furio is group 5 insurance which is quite low considering it's a 1.4i engine. I would recommend it to any young driver for their first or second car. I mean it looks good and its quite nippy, what more do you want for a first car?
I will write again if I have any problems with the car.
To the guy that needs cheap insurance, just use moneysupermarket.com, I'm 20 been driving one year and got my VTS insured at £1300 TPF&F.
I'm 18 and my furio was my first car. Insurance cost me £1000 TPF&T with Quinn Direct was about £1600 fully comp.
I've just turned 18 and have had my Furio for about 5 months, and so far have had no problems with it. It keeps up with my mate's Escorts on acceleration. Doubt it will on top speed, but I don't really want to pick up any points yet, or lose my licence.
I'm insured with Quinn-direct. They were the cheapest that I found, and the excess is not that high either, which I thought was good considering my age.
Also I have driven my friend's Rover 214, and think the Saxo is better to drive, and possibly a bit quicker, or that just might be down to the driver i.e me and my friend.
All in all, if you want a sporty looking car that's affordable I would recommend it.
Alright guys, I'm 17 an looking to get a Furio for my 1st car. I've been quoted around 1,800 cheapest quote. I am not sure whether to get a Corsa 1.2 SXi because insurance is just as cheap.. Any one recommend what I should do?? plz.
I forgot to add my email regarding the Saxo or Corsa... (email@example.com) If you could email me if you can recommend about the comment above thanx.
Hey, I have a Furio 1.4, had it for 6 months now. I love it, but my problem is I was hit from behind and now need a tail. Would a VTS tailgate fit on to my Furio?
