What do you love or hate about your car? Anything that reall.y winds you up or puts a smile on your face? Had a 5 series BM. Couldn't believe they'd put such rubbish seats in them. But being able to open or close the windows from the keyfob; now that's real class

Citroen Xantia 1993 2.0L 16v VSX

Love:

Performance and engine growl (16v 2.0L 130 BHP)
Comfort
Power steering
Nice Alloys (Citroen Standard 15") Although someone near to me has fitted those 14" Pug 205 1.6 GTI wheels to his

Hate

Very tempromental key fob (disabled the alarm because of this)
Worth peanuts, although it's only done 72K
So complicated
Can't see the fog light buttons because of the steering wheel, so if I run into a patch of fog I have to take my eyes off the road to search for them!
Sunroof leaks and I'm sure its a design fault.

Verdict

I'll get around to fixing that sunroof soon, I'll probably run it into the ground, then buy a later one and swap some of the bits over.

Renault Trafic SWB van 1996 N

Likes

Nice square payload, better than VW and other comparisons
Dirt cheap to buy only cost £750 last Christmas
Power steering (yes - in a Van!)
Side loading door
Simplistic (being diesel)
Very economical
Nice traditional gutters, means I can (and have) get cheap roof bars. None of this rubbish about £80 for bars and £30 for fixing kit bla bla bla....)

Hates

0 to 60 - eventually!
Pay load just under 8" long by a few inches! So sheet materials have to stand up and be arranged at an angle. Still gets them in though.
Would be useful if it had one extra seat (it's got 2 passenger seats) or if I had one less child!

Verdict

If I want to go fast I'll take the citroen, that's why I run 2 vehicles.
At £750 for a latish diesel van I'll keep it for a few years yet.

2002 Renault Laguna dci 120

Love:

Performance, economy, ride comfort, handling, refinement, seats, space, stowage cubbies, glasses holder, CD player, etc, etc, etc...wake up there at the back, it's not that boring

Poor steering lock, cleaning the alloys & the thought of having to re-rubber them.......and that's about all!
