    My car

    I have just purchased the car for my daughter. We traded in her citroen saxo 1.1 desire for £2400 which was a march 2001 on a Y reg with one previous owner.

    The dealer gave us the option of a cash deal at £6645 with metallic and he has thrown in car mats and mud flaps.

    I am impressed by the level of equipment and on first impressions after a 30 minute test drive the car seems fine.

    After reading some of your reader reviews, I am sure my daughter will be delighted with her new car and as it is the 1.1 se in silver metallic it looks really sporty for her. I will let you know more after a couple of months.

    My car

    Bought this car for my daughter's 18th birthday. She actually passed her test in the car. I think the car most of all offers superb value for money. Good standard spec includes CD player, twin airbags, front elec windows, side impact protection and ABS.

    I love the driving position which feels a little like driving a smaller version of a renault scenic. I actually own an Audi TT myself so I suppose that driving anything else would feel like you are sitting quite high.

    Most impressive is the amount of room inside and with 4 doors as well it makes a very practical little car. Actually enjoy driving the Picanto more than my wife's Mini Cooper.

    My car

    A smart looking car, brilliant value for the money even fits the weeks shopping in the boot, which is small but adequate.

    My car

    As I have not yet passed my test I don't drive the car that much but I already love it and am glad the my parents bought me it as a pressie I would definitely recommend it.
