ProIt consumes very little

ContraA little uncomfortable at driving

And so, while ciao.com Italia is inaccessible (don't tell me why... because I don't know!!), I think it's time to talk about Citroen Saxo 1.5D 3P SX! Why Diesel? Because on the average I make 40.000 km/year (obviously until now... actually my rhythm is 1.000 km/week...!), and i don't like to...

I purchased my R Reg Saxo 1.5 d sx in 1998 new from my local dealer in Birmingham. It was the first car I ever bought (with a little assistance) and a car for a new driver it is superb. It costs little to run in comparison to an equivalent petrol car, with cheap insurance (Citroen often give a...

“Not bad”

ProGood value car

Contraat times feels like a motorised shopping trolley

I bought my Saxo almost 3 years ago now, and i have had very little trouble with it at all. The initial decision to buy the diesel Saxo, was that i was travelling a lot of miles at the time, and due the fact i'd had my last car nicked, i needed a car with free insurance so it didn't cost a...

The Citroen Saxo 1.5diesel is a reliable, fairly comfortable and extremely economical. To compare it with another, my Saxo has an 'r' registration, compared to that of my Mother's Peuguot 206 which has 'y' registration. She has just had to purchase a new gear box, whereas mine is still going...

Pro130 Miles on a tenner! Looks modern

ContraGiven bad names by boy racers

I'm going to break this review down into a few sectors to give you some good information! Mechanical - The clutch on both of the Saxos I've had saw the biting point nearly all the way at the top of the pedal, this also seemed to be an issue when they were new. They also don't like going into...

“My only ever car”

published 23/01/2004

ProFuel economy and size

ContraFlimsy panels and road noise

I bought my Saxo in 1999 with 3 years fully comp insurance ( the reason for buying ). I bought the diesel version because of the high milage I drive and also, diesel is 30 pence per litre cheaper in Ireland. The car has now clocked well over 120,000 miles and has given me no bother. I've even...

Its a great car, will drive miles without nagging you for fuel. Ideal cars for first time buyers but would reccomend replacing the original wheel for something a little wider. Ive got 195mm on mine and it handles like a dream with the french suspension. However i may have lost a little on accelleration, my safety is worth more. Besides it isnt the quickest off the mark but will hold its weight through the corners. Provided you look after it (regular top ups) it will drive well ove 200,000 miles. My only advise dont run the tank too much under half, always keep her topped up to help the engine.
