Saxo Vtr 1997 1.6 — like the fact of how easy it is change the look of this car and how easy it is to modify. the car is brilliant in the corners and pulls well up to 90mph. parts are cheap enough to be replaced easily and self fitting is easy with a haynes manual.

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

Pros: proformance, fuel and looks

Cons: insurance, tax

This One Is Cool But Don't Ever Buy One!!! — Wank on Acceleration but gets there eventually. Braking ok depending on the mood the car is in. Needs repairing constantly. Loads of creaks bangs and rattles. 200 miles to 30 squid if your lucky. Other than all that its ace good fun and I love it!!!!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Well good fun

Cons: Its French

Sterile Car — My wife used to drive this one. What to say? A good thing to move from A to B, but nothing more.

Pros: It's a Citro├źn

Cons: 4 wheels & an engine, no class, no power - a sterile car
