  • Summary

    2 out of 5 2.0

    What does this car say about you?

    I'm not too sure, the VTS badge obviously gives it a boy racer look but on the whole it just looks like a normal C2 with a slightly meaner disposition.

    What do your friends / family / neighbours think of the car?

    Nobody will go in or near it.

    Would you buy this car again and why?

    Never again.

    What are you likely to buy next?

    Depending on whether or not I can sell this one I'm not sure, but probably a peugeot 207 gt.

    What price did you pay?


    When did you buy the car?

    June 2012

    Did you get a good deal and why?

    Seemed like a good deal when I bought it, however the snapped cambelt after 1 hour confirmed my suspicions that it might have been too good to be true.

    Is there any special reason why you bought this car?

    Thought it was a nice looking car with good performance and handling and a decent interior.

    What was the dealer like?

    Alright, gave me 40 quid for a tank of petrol, which actually lasted me just over a month due to it being garaged on the first day I bought it to have it's engine rebuilt.

  • Driving it

    4 out of 5 4.0

    What's it like to drive?

    Lively engine that loves to be revved, mainly because there is a distinct lack of power under 4500rpm. The sports suspension makes it stick like glue round corners and is brilliant on B roads but for everyday driving it is like driving to work inside a cement mixer. The brakes are brilliant and are one of the only things on the car I can't fault.

    What's it like to park?

    Very easy.

  • Living with it

    2 out of 5 2.0

    Have you had any problems with the car?

    Most things, the cambelt, clutch, front and rear brake disks, front right suspension spring, Oil leak from the oil filter housing, exhaust has fallen off on one occasion and I had to have a gear selector arm replaced. But the stereo works, the stereo works fantastically.

    What's most practical about your car?

    Easy to park.

    Favourite gadget, option or accessory?

    The sports seats are quite comfortable, and does cushion you slightly from the back breaking sports suspension.
