What Saxo is it? VTR??? I hate saxos too. Learnt in one and drove it for about 6 months, they are a pile of **** compared to the Corsa. Everything shakes on them when you hit 80

I can't press the accelerator in a saxo, the wheel arch gets in the way on one side and the brake pedal is too close on the other!

Yeah I found that! I had an S reg one and it wasn't so bad. I think when the new shape came out they put the pedals closer together. I test drove a VTR when I was lookin for cars and I kept hammering the accelerator everytime I was braking. The salesman didnt look too impressed at all :shock:

It was crazy how different it was, particularly as I was used to driving a Saxo. they're poo :p

I agree, i learnt in a Saxo for a few months, couldn't stand the thing, knew i wouldn't be able to pass my test in that **** on wheels, so i got myself the corsa, learnt in that, then passed first time! :D

but most of the saxo owners are **** drivers, keep the rev range tight and keep it fluid through the corners and u can give them the finger as u go past them!

i love racing them, they easily have the edge in a straight line, but on a road with a thing called corners they hit the breaks constantly and drive like idiots!

though people say the 1.2's are slow, they are quick for what they are, my mates and there 1.4 polos have no hope in beating me and my mates in their clios just sit somewhere near the back.

fully rate our little cars, fully laugh at saxos :)

The 1.2 is a match for quite a few cars these are just a few from my experiences:
escort xr3
polos
clio 1.2/1.4
fiesta 1.25/1.3
puntos

People dont give the 1.2 enough credit, im not suggestin its fast im just sayin for a 1.2 its quite gd, if u keep the revs high (very slugish below 3k rpm :? ) it doesnt do too badly and can give people a shock at the traffic lights.

early VTR's have 90bhp.....the very first few new shape ones also had 90bhp (black tops)......after them they all came with 98bhp.....but sometimes you can find a 100bhp one.

i beat a K reg civic 1.6 of the line at some lights yesterday.....damn he was not happy.....it was one of those where the lane goes from 2 lanes to 1 and i was in the merging lane......ahah he was mad when i overtook him down the outside :x

my best mate has a new VTR....stayed with him thru 1st and 2nd but when they hit 3rd they pull away.....but around tight roads they aint much better.....corsa's brakes are a million times better.....i was outbraking him every time, also the handling is tons better too

lol my mate has a zetec-s and it's ace to pass paxos in... great fun and ace handling... the zetec-s is mint, but build quality is shabby,compared to the corsa. the design is really showing its age. And the factory cd player really is disgusting... much worse than the standard vx ones, plus no temp guage etc etc etc

but paxos... the drivers think there ace, untill the zetec passes them... sorry if fiestas are a bit of a sore subject on here... im new!

I'd take a Zetec-S before a VTR anyday :thumbs:

Like you said- all saxo drivers think they're the bees knees, I want all of them to crashand write off their bin on wheels :lol:

I see everyone is jumping on the band wagon here then :roll:
I don't see why you are all slagging off Saxos? Yeh ok so there are alot of them knocking about and more than not they are usually drove by proper neds but other than that they ain't bad. Build quality isn't as good as the Corsa and I agree they are made of too much plastic. Obviously VTR or VTS are the only ones to bother with. I've drove a post 2000 VTS and fook me they are quick! BHP on these is 130 standard, not bad standard for a 1.6. I think for those of you that have not drove one of these you should consider your posts before ripping into them. If you have drove one, then fair enough, thats your opinion :p
