Could Have Been Better — was fun to drive on back roads but need to be pushed hard. lack of power for hill climbs. Build Quality was poor with bits falling off even when car was only 4 years old. was cheap to run. it didn't like cold temps

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: cheap to run

Cons: falls apart after 4 years

Saxo 1.1 — Its quick for a 1.1, cheap to tax n run, easy to maintain if you know what your doing. Acceleration is not bad, the car dosent really weight anythin. Quite fun to drive can throw it in to corners in the dry not so good in the wet though.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Engine size

It Was Ok — after 3 months of aving it i blew the engine! the immobilsier was a pain in the arse, the stearing wheel ratles when u go above 80mph. the car was a fun thing to drive especially as it was my 1st doing the roundabout game good times

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: it had nice seats and stereo

Cons: too slow

A Decent Car With A Bad Repuation. — Wasn't a bad car, Awful fuel economy.. But It was rapid!.. Needed a few bits and bobs doing to it, wasnt the best built or most refined car either... Although it looked pretty good because I had lowered it..was very good to drive...

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: For the way it drives

Cons: Fuel economy, build quality, chav image

I Still Miss It Over A Year After Selling It — Performance - Not the best Build Quality - Ok, nothing major went wrong Appearance - Much better once i'd sorted some stuff out Cost of Ownership - I miss the cheap insurance and high MPG Fun Factor - This is where it came into a league of it's own!! The handling was where it made up for it's lack of power. I don't know how much it was lowered but it was perfect (except when it came to speed humps!)

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

Pros: Fun, cheap to run

Cons: 2 Star ncap rating and when things go wrong

Good Car Overall — this is a very nippy car, althought the braking is a bit soft and could do with been bit sharper, the build quality is very good, not had to fix anything since owning the car, looks good, cheap and fun!

Pros: good quality

Cons: soft brakes

Little Bundle Of Joy — Appearance-looks best in the dark Performance - what performance Fuel - excellent, cheap as chips Eletronic key ignition - the bain of my life, its a security feature that cuts off the fuel to the car if it doesnt recognise the key, the key is now 10 years old and there is no master therefore, my little bundle of joy only starts when it wants too, not the sort of thing that helps a car sell on!!!!

Pros: Colour, Reputation, fuel consumption, insurance group

Cons: electronic ignition, lack of accelleration to 10 mph!!

My First Car Is Veeeery Fun — Acceleration is fairly average 0-60 in just over 10 seconds, had it at 110, braking isn't fantastic but it handles like it's on rails! It is a west coast model, 1360cc so the cost of ownership is fairly cheap. aside from a few dents and scrapes the car looks good but there have been mechanical issues including gear linkages and power steering pump. overall though, I love the little thing!

Pros: Go Kart handling, fuel bills

Cons: Build quality, could be faster
