    Potential new owner- forum usage

    Thinking of buying a new S E. L 5door for the wife to do short journeys in. Was expecting to see an active forum but 8 posts with the last in 2018 and none with responses “worries” me... either owners are not of a genre to follow a car forum or so content no issues arise... ?

    They are too reliable, the ones we look after never go wrong... so no body asks questions and to be honest this is a young forum and the Citi Go not a car run by trendy tinterweb youngsters. It is the same with the VW Fox, they are hardly ever mentioned on VW forums and the same for the UP and Mii

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Thought s, the issue now is I’ve decided if we do this it will be a 5 door SE. L 75 bhp, elec mirrors for me heated seats for her... reversing sensors for youngest son ( who has a brand new Octavia 245 VRS estate which is quick for overtaking) but knowing vag are ceasing production and not replacing do I buy or wait for an electric thing

    When my Yeti was in for servicing I was given a Yeti with a large nail in one of the tyres and no spare as a loan car. I rejected it and was given a brand new Citigo. Later that day I returned it with just over 120 miles on the clock and could not get rid of it fast enough. Probably not a fair comparison but I found it tinny, cramped and gutless.

    Yup I’d expect going back to 1980’s power of 75 bhp and minimal kit will be a shock. my final company car until I retired in 2017 was an Audi a4ultra se diesel auto saloon .. oh how the mighty have fallen 1 may say.. but a stroke, 40years years with the same employer means options are limited,., going relatively basic is quite “exciting “
