    Have you been turned off any manufacturer/model?

    and for what reason too?

    Me - i'll never own another Citroen if i can help it. Also i'll never own a Fiat too if i can help that either

    Citroen:

    They may make perfectly good cars or whatever, but my 2 bad experiences have put me off.
    First car was a Citroen AX. No end of trouble with it. Various electrical faults & then water p!ssing everywhere. Just fault after fault which P'd me off too much

    Replaced it with a Citroen ZX (free). Had this car for a long while, but this too had reliability issues. Bodywork on both were amazing, but reliability was shocking.

    I'll not own another

    Fiat:

    The g/f owned a Cinquento sporting as her first car. I know you can't judge all Fiat's on this car, but i think if a gust of wind had blown at me in it, i'd have taken off. Hated the feel to driving it, hated the build of it.
    She got it free as an Xmas present & P/x'd it getting £500 for it so in effect bought her RELIABLE well built Polo for £300. Bargain.

    Have also driven a Punto which i wasn't keen on.

    So far, i've only crossed off two manufacturers.

    You?

    Citroen must agree. Driving one at the min and they're very temperamental.

    With the Citroen ZX, generally it felt that the engine was very reliable but the non vital bits would always go wrong.

    VW - Corrado 16v, totally unreliable, the main dealer couldn't supply parts even with the chassis number and lots of parts were needed.

    A vastly over rated brand of car IMO.
    Tell me what you've done, not what you're going to!

    Citroen - saxo 1.1sx, the full exhaust practically fell off and as being held on by the back box when i was on my way to my dads, also the engine always overheated. Never again

    Peugeot/Citreon/Renault - all generally have poor build quality, electrical problems & are generally **** to drive.

    New mini - one of the most over rated cars imo, not the best driving position imo. and the fuel consumption is horrendous.
