    My car

    Good little car let down by the fact that its a Citroen. Owned mine for 6 months, senso-drive was the sole reason for selling an otherwise good car. 1st to 2nd gear was like having an epileptic fit in the middle of a busy roundabout. Not very quick despite the VTR badge, not very good on petrol either. Dont be fooled into thinking this is an auto-matic cos its not, its supercar ideas in a cheap hatchback, but once into 3rd and at speed the flappy paddles are decent and smooth if used properly - dont bother with the Auto mode, its supposed to learn your style of driving but it'll just annoy you.

    My car

    I had a 1.1 Design a few years ago, swapped it for VTR and then a VTS - wished i hadnt. Very good car in basic 1.1 format. Quite nippy too. Good fun to drive, fair amount of interior space. Reasonably cheap to run. Only problem i ever had was the CD player ate my cd's up. Looks a little dated now despite recent face-lift. Front bumper area feels a bit flimsy. Citroen have lost their 'quirky' imagination of previous years.

    My car

    I previously had a 05 C3 1.6i 16v Exclusive Sensodrive for 3 years and now I was due to change the car on the Motability Scheme. I was going to have another C3 but the 1.6i 16v was only avalible with the 4 speed Auto and I didn't want to go back to a fully Automatic so I decided to have the C2 VTR which I took Delivery on 28/4/08 and its brilliant. After 300 miles its running like a dream and I am getting upto 53mpg already so I am well impressed.

    If it runs like the last car did for the 3 years I will be a happy man.

    My car

    I recently test drove a new C2 VTS and I was amazed by how nippy this little car is.

    Before I looked at the speedo I was going 80mph. I needed a small nippy little car for driving from A to B. It was a toss-up between this and a Mini Cooper.

    The C2 is by far a much faster car than the Mini. People don't give these little Citroens any credit, but they are truly great little cars.

    However, I have just taken delivery of my new Mini Cooper because I'm a snob and I knew that the Mini will hold its value much better, but at the back of my mind I can't stop thinking about the little C2 and how much cheaper it would have been for me to have one instead.

    It's a great little car and the Citroen dealers will knock thousands of them. Mini didn't give me any discount whatsoever!
