    Citroen C2 VTR opinions?



    Looking around, and came across these purely on the basis of cheap insurance and a little bit of poke. When i've researched a little more into them, they seem pretty well kitted out, and can be had for a decent price. my quibbles are that its french and the saxo's had a bit of a bad rep for build quality. Oh and the flap paddle, senso drive seems to have mixed reviewss.


    what do you lot think of these?

    It's french. when citroen start advertising their cars as built in Germany you know the rumours are true. AVOID like the plague.

    Surely that is testament to how good it is in a crash then?

    The flappy paddle gearbox is terrible. If you must get one then it has to be the manual GT or the VTS. I wouldn't go near any of them though.

    The flappy box its woeful. My mate has one and says its the worst car he ever had, its not like the old vtr that was fast, light and simple. Id avoid it mate to be honest.

    Go for the VTS. I think these have a normal manual gearbox

    Their cheap and cheerfull, and you get what you pay for, I bought one brand new, and about 6 months later, I had had enough, they are soo small and pokey, you cant fit anyone in the back over about 2ft high, but yeh they are economical, and I like the look of them but they lose so much money and you can pick them up dead cheap now, but I suppose they are a fun little car to drive.

    Paddle gearbox is a mider on them, and alot of people dont like it and it can be abit "temperemental",

    The whole build quality feels cheap, inside and out, but I suppose if you can pick one up cheap, you will probably be able to move it on quickly when you have had enough,
