1987 Citroen AXReview
Great 1st Car. Then Get Something Better =o) — (Ignore the GT badge - I drove a normal one) 645kgs, a 1 litre engine, and bicycle thin tyres means a whole heap of trouble if pushed in any way shape or form. Wasn't fast by any means, but wasn't slow either due to lack of weight. But then there's not a huge amount of cornering grip either... nor the suspension to stop it rolling. Think of a 2CV but a bit better. Yeah. It struggles up motorway hills. They tend to slow it from 70 (which is a problem as it took some going to get it to 70 in the first place). I wouldn't say the interior was cramped, but not massive either. I think at the end of the day a small cheap car is nothing more than a small cheap car. Is a town car. An A to B car. As long as A isn't that far from B.
Pros: Cheap and cheerful.
Cons: Protection (if any)

Times Are Hard
Performance - Acceleration very poor, braking poor, handling feels heavy. Build quality - engine etc are excellent, accessories are terrible. Appearance - boxy and out dated, designed in the mid 80's.... Read More

The White Jive Will Never Let You Down.
The White Jive is more commonly known as man's best friend - it could handle consecutive roundabouts like it was on roller skates. Occasionally it would run out of horn juice but this only adds to the... Read More

A small and quite hilarious car. A 1.1 fuel engine with around 40 bhp. The engine is reliable as hell but for the rest... doors won't lock anymore, no stereo, crapy seats... just what you need for pur... Read More
