A Great First Time Car — This car is a sporty car. Gaining good speed with its 1.4 engine. The Car is well built, sturdy little car, handles bends nicely. Very light on petrol nice interior in the car with driver air bag and adjustable seat, clean and accessible engine easy to navigate way around it The following is based on driving on Flat Grass lands Performance: The Acceleration on the car is very good building up speed nice and quickly and not having to rev the engine before changing gears. Breaking is alright its a bit hard to say because the test driving is not done on proper road surfacing. I will say that in this car you had to brake early if going at good speed. Handling on the car... is another tough tricky one because on several occasions the car had just skidded into grass when locking right. of course that's down to my driving. But otherwise i felt the car handled nicely on the bends even in wet weather. the weight of the car helps to keep it level. Build Quality: I'd say its well built in my opinion. Doors are good heavy doors. Has it needed repairs it does now. the exhaust seems to fill the boot which in turn fills the car with fumes. The electrical's causes a problem by leaking because of the Aerial right above allowing water to mess up the electrical's. Not really much rust on it which is great. no rust from natural problems only where marks have been formed. Appearance: Well i do like the car it is sporty looking and with a spoiler and the right body kit can look even better. back bumper mostly. The Seats are quiet comfortable with there semi bucket style. Dash i nice layout with the center console slightly angled towards the driver for easy access. removing the cigarette lighter would be a great place for a push button starter specially if your a lefty like me. Doors are nicely built and with most metal work covered up by plastic looks very nice. Cost of Ownership: Besides having to buy bits for it its not all that bad. Fuel is pretty decent on the 1.4 with about 9 liters getting you 6-7 miles. I dont know if its just the second hand bulbs i managed to get my hands on but the bulbs seem to be a bit of an issue blowing on me. and the fog lights seem to be a pain to get at to change. im sure you have to go from under the car to get at them unless they slide out. Fun Factor: Sporty car. fast and comfy which for the bumpy terrain its brilliant.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Economical, comfortable and reliable

Cons

liftt off oversteer, if u cant handle it may kill you lol

35

French Fart, Satisfying At The Time, But Still French — This is my most recent, and current car. It is a good and very comfortable car, and the 1.9 non turbo diesel. Its fantastic for economy but not performance, however i have found a great way to have fun in the wet, its called lift off oversteer and it happens with little or no warning, and all u can do is try to catch it! Its not so bad on the build quality as far as body and engine are concerned but it is a french car so usual electric probs from time to time, over all if i had at least 100 hp more itd be fantasic fun!

Good, Clean Fun — pretty nippy for a first car. 1.9 turbo diesel, interior is quite up to date with the times i would say, plenty of room and v comfortable chairs. exterior has a few bumbs and scrapes but nothing serious, 40+ miles to the gallon and a wee pocket sized fun car to drive

Pros

Allround performance as a hot-hatch

Cons

None

35

The Best Hot-hatch Overall! — 306GTi-6 is really the king of classic hot-hatches. Agile, good performance, stylish, it makes you smile no matter you're on a twisty road or just simply drive it. The only hot-hatch that beats 306GTi-6, on my mind, is the 205 GTi.

Pros

Everything

Cons

Cost of diesel

25

Good Overall Car — Performance - Fantastic acceleration, Good Braking, Brilliant handling. Build Quality - Good build, not needed any repairs. Appearance - Nice appearance, not yet a head turner but that will be changed on both interior and exterior. Cost - mileage is great, thank god because its a diesel. Hasnt needed any real maintenance apart from the usual which doesnt cost anything. Fun factor - Best car I have ever driven. It screams with laughter when you throw it into a corner, it roars when you put your foot to the floor and it grips the floor as tight as a baby with a teddy bear (which is tight). Recommended to anyone. Reliable for new drivers and fun for experienced

Pros

Bullet Proof Engines and Good Looks

Cons

ITS FRENCH!!!!!

35

My D-tractor — Smooth euro lines, pretty much bullet proof engine but hard to pin point boost leaks (i have one but cant find it HAHA). Its had a brief magazine feature and i have spent quite abit of money on it and it handles superb. Reasonable performance for a 10 year old diesel turbo and also has potential to play with the engine but still wont make it super fast. Also the colour is superb always looks sparkling (but i do wash it about 4 times a week) and is never short of a few looks when im driving about (possibly cos i drive like a prick with my music blasting)
