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)
