Car In my 12 years of driving I have had 5 cars. However only on this last one did I feel I had more choice rather than "oh no, my car has died and I need another one urgently...and cheaply" With a little cash behind me from selling the previous car I took some time to choose one that I thought would work best for my needs. 3 years on with this chosen (second-hand) car and it's working out quite well. [Spec] Drive: Manual Gears: 5 Doors: 2 Seats: 4 Fuel: Petrol [Mileage] I get around 60 miles per gallon from this car. [Tax] One of the benefits of this ... Read the complete review

I purchased a Citroen C1 as my previous car, a Vauxhall Tigra, was eating up too much fuel. The C1 certainly uses less petrol than a Tigra, so in a nutshell does what I bought it for. The C1 is quirky with a very polished design, and the best looking of the 106 the C1 and the Aygo (all the same car believe it or not). The car itself is very nice to drive. it is reminiscent of the tiny hatchbacks of old: nippy, quick steering, close to the ground little things which were fun to drive. The seats in mine are bucket seats (extra) which are very comfortable. Please do not get the normal seats, they are terrible. You do yearn for more power, but if ... Read the complete review

I bought my C1 two years ago, brand new and I still love it! It is small yet roomy - I can take 3 children around easily, although bits slightly tighter for sdulats in the back. The back seats lie flat'ish enabling me to carry fairly bulky items in the boot. It is a nippy little car for work and esepcially twon driving, although not quite as conmfortable on longer distances - four hours to Brighton ewas a bit numbing! Financially, anyone who buys a C1 is going to be pounds better off. The car tax is only £35 a year which is incredible and with a low insurance my running costs are lower then they've ever been. Fuel consumption is excellent - I do about 250 miles a week ... Read the complete review

The new boy in my life - C1 in a slinky black shade. Having lost my car to the garage for the week-end ( yet another expensive MOT bill looming!!) I have had the pleasure and yes it has been a pleasure to drive my partner's car. The C1 ( or loving referred to as the Micro-machine by my son). I have borrowed it a couple of times to pop to the shops but not really taken it on a longer run. Having driven it for most of this week I felt the need to share my experience of it with you. If you are thinking of buying a small, economical but nippy car this should definitely be one to consider. ~~~~ Why did my partner chose this car? ... Read the complete review

I bought a 3 door 2006 Citroen C1 Vibe second hand around 9 months ago and to be honest I wish I'd never bothered! I'll start off with the good stuff which attracted me to the car in the first place:- *Fantastic Fuel Economy. I'm not sure if I get the suggested 60 mpg, but it can't be too far off it. It certainly uses less than my previous car (Fiat Seicento) which was a much smaller car. *Low Insurance cost. *£35 a year road tax. *Reasonable performance. Acceleration seems much better than I had expected for a car that is less than 1000cc engine, at least up to about maybe 40mph which is fine for mostly urban ... Read the complete review
