Great Fun And Not Too Bad On Petrol Or Insurance — First car, great fun, cheap to run and insure and really nippy, it was good over long distances as well as runs round town, and was just a really great first car! Its main appeal was the fact it was so economical.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: really cheap but fun

Cons: it kept giving me electric shocks!

Saxo Vtr 1.6i (optional Abs) — We owned two Saxo VTRs The 1st, a White 1999 VTR mk1, went back to the dealer and was rejected (you can do that under UK law) as numerous faults from peeling paint to faulting breaks could not be satisfactorily resolved. The replacement, a Mk2 VTR- like the above picture- was much better. Build quality was weak. Performance was quick as the car is so light. The peddles are slightly offset so it was never the most comfortable to drive. Cheap to run & insure though.

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

Pros: pocket rocket

Cons: build, space, its french

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

Cheap Cheerful Fun!! — Had it for five years. Done over 140k miles now, cost around £300 in bits over last five years (including fuel pump, power steering pump, washer pump and thrust bearing in the clutch) I think its been a great car for that reason, it has never caused me much hassle at all, fuel pump was the biggest issue because it wouldnt stay broken so it took a little while to find the definite problem!!

Pros: Great fun, really nippy, surprises a lot of numptys in their expensive fancy cars

Cons: Its french!!

Saxo — good little car, great for a first, good acceleration for a 1.1, have put an induction kit on it sounds great. nice car to drive. has a few rattles but its an old car. down point, brake are no good, they hardly work. not a very solid car, woulddnt stand a chance in a crash.

Pros: nippy

Cons: rattles

The Beast — My car is feisty like me thats why it's called 'the beast'. It is Persian Red - NOT PINK. It's kitted out with a K&N induction kit, stainless steel exhaust, body kit etc and because it's so lightweight it goes like a little rocket. It's cheap to run, well not how I drive it but has had a few electrical issues which i've sorted now. I do most work myself where possible, but will be selling it soon :( .... for an Impreza :) oh yeah!

Pros: Quick, looks good

Cons: Electrical problems take a while to find the problem

The Tron! — Very good on fuel (70mpg), will pull very well and my little beauity will go off the clock (on rollong road). Interior is good if you wish to modify and kits easy to buy. Enigine can be tuned easily or their is enough room to uprgade. Although slightly heavy on the front end she sticks to the road well through corners.

Pros: Very good engine that only gets better with age and will do more than 250k miles

Cons: Body work can be a pain if damaged or replaced

Saxo Vts On The Low Wearing Those Sweet White Rims — I got this beauty after my VTR. In my opinion this is the car to get if you want a little FUN! The engine on this was a 1.6 16v135bhp with a 0-60 in 7.6 secs. This car other than the engine was the exact same as the VTR, the interior was good and the exterior was nice. This handled like it was on tracks, accelerated throughout the rev range and kept me entertained for hours! Fuel consumption was OK the harder you drive it the more fuel it drinks but don't let that put you off it. You have to be careful when you buy a second hand car like this as most likely it has been driven hard! 2 months after buying this i had to spend £1500 putting her right! Overall if i had the change i'd get another one!!

Pros: Fast, exciting, fun to drive, little pocket rocket!

Cons: Same interior as the VTR
