Citroen Xsara 2001 1.6i — I like the looks and it seems to work nice. Could be a bit more powerful, but it's ok with it's 110HP as the car is quite light (1100kg). Needs fairly high revs (4000+) to get the power out. Really smooth ride on bumpy roads. Quite economical. Heater and asswarmers are fast.

Pros: Looks, gas economy

Cons: Bit soft

Xsara Vts 2.0 (168bhp) — Great performance - 0-60 about 8.5 secs , good handling, Bargin under a £3000. best in class. just the road tax is a bit dear, mileage is about £60 for 400 mile with putting the foot down a bit. Full black leather. fun factor i'd give 4 out of 5 . colour is misty lilac

Pros: Performance and handling

Cons: a few rattles from trim

A Good Family Car. — Its a good reliable car, loads of space gets us from A-B. It's the 1.6 8v version so no prizes for performance, and a little bit like a boat round corners but that’s not what it was built for. Build quality is fairly good apart from some of the padding in the drivers seat collapsing, As far as reliability goes we have not had any major problems at all, we have kept it serviced and the usual tyres, exhausts and breaks and nothing else has needed to be done. Looks like a fat baked bean but again it wasn’t built to be a sports car, for all its down failings in appetence and performance it is an absolutely fantastic car for carting the kids and all the bits around in it too. Does exactly what it says on the tin, and the seats come out to turn it into a mini van, excellent for moving things or having a clear out in the home. When this car dies I would definitely get another one.

Pros: what ever you need for a family

Cons: a bit slow and none too pretty, but it wasnt bought to be a sports car.

Was A Major Perfromance Bargain! — Good looking car reminiscent of a Capri or Mk2 RS2000 and had plenty of punch from the 167bhp 2.0 16v engine. Fairly roomy and quite rare. Isnurance quite high but considering how cheap it was to buy no real issue. Handled quite well but if you floored it in the damp it would squiggle all over the place. Running costs ok, quite thirsty but depended on how hard you drove and over what distance. Noisy and tiring on long journeys such as on motorways but great fun across country!

Pros: Looks, performance, price, rarity?

Cons: Fuel consumption, insurance
