    My car

    i have previously owned a mk3.5 fiesta, 2.0l 150bhp engine, now own a vts and this car is great, acceleration in all gears is excellent, really smooth drive and great fuel economy, there are alot of comments about the cabin size, i'm 6'5" tall 21stone and size 11 feet, and i really dont have any trouble at all, did a 4hr drive in it a couple of weeks ago and i was all good, the only bad bits is it is a bit noisey, and the dash and inside is very plastic, but over all it was an awesome buy, although the vtr is les to insure and tax, but the 16v engine is well worth the extra couple of pounds

    My car

    Never have I been so glad to get rid of a car as I was with the Saxo.

    It was noisy and uncomfortable - I could go on with a long list of negatives for the Saxo. I have just bought a Proton Savvy, the best buy I have ever made.

    I can recommend to anyone wanting to buy a small car for a decent price - buy a Proton Savvy.

    My car

    I've owned my 1996 P-registered Saxo for almost a year. Being a Citroen man and having owned AXs, I have to say the Saxo is a big step forward.

    It's been exceptionally reliable (touch wood) and is an entertaining drive, though being nearly 6ft tall, my right leg hurts on a long journey.

    That said, it's excellent and for a 1.1, it's suprisingly quick and has enough power.

    It's no DS or CX, but it is great and underated. I'd recommend it, and it's much better than a Ford Fiesta.

    My car

    I have a V reg 1.4i Saxo WestCoast limited,it comes with cd player, sunroof, electric windows, power steering and alloy wheels. the car handles well, I have had this car two years & I have only had to change the brake cable & clutch cable, You dont have to put your foot down to pick up speed as it is fast, its faster than a Ford Escourt on the motorway. it looks nice & sporty as its a Saxo VTR bodykit, but its a bit tight inside as Im 5`7. This car is well worth the money & the insurance is cheap.
