Summary:

There are better deals in the market

Faults:

Seats have started to wear badly, the drivers seat does not lock properly anymore.

A lot of electric problems, a spare bulb comes always handy as at least once a week a bulb will go off. Dealer service could not solve it.

The steering wheel vibrates a lot after 80 km/hour.

General Comments:

The car is in general OK for down town use, but it is dangerous to drive it in the highway. It is slow, does not accelate fast enough and the brakes cannot always be trusted. It should had been ABS fitted.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Summary:

Perfect city car, park it everywhere!!!

Faults:

Flat rear tire 3 times when new, dealer replaced a faulty valve on the wheel.

Burnt foglight bulb also replaced under warranty.

General Comments:

Fantastic city car, very powerful being a 1.2 (75bhp), but it has load of torque and you can drive in 3rd at all speeds.

Very, repeat very huge inside, comfortable as nothing I have driven in my life.

Little boot but, who wants a big boot in the city?

Near 13km/liter of gasoline consumption, twice as economical as my old Corsa (crap car!).

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The 1.2 twingo doesn't have 75 hp, it really has 60 hp.

To my knowledge, there is. Originally it was 55HP, Twingo 2 came out with 60HP in 1999. The newest models (since maybe 2001) are sold with 75HP engines.

The Twingo got the Clio engine in 2001. It is the 1.2 16V and the output is 75 HP.
