I had to write another review of the AX GT because i love these cars so much. Just came across my original review of the car from 2004, well since then i have owned 2 more of these and currently have a black mk1 with 100k on the clock as my run about. Awesome. 162 quid to insure and 120 a year to tax. Spot on. Never fails to put a smile on my face everyday- all standard, 1 previous owner, no rust. Gets a lot of interest from younger boy racers and fellow hot hatch connoisseurs! The reasons... (read more)

The Citroen AX GT 1.4 is pretty sporty, quite a bit of torque, good for steep hills and buses on the motorway (read more)

I have owned 7 of these little rocket powered roller skates and I still love them, I have owned many fast cars including sunny GTI, Nova GTI, a maxed senator pushing 265 bhp and many more but on todays roads these ax gt's are great. I just brought an e plate with 49 on the clock and its fantastic, I like these cars as they're easy to work on and bits are cheap. Their only down fall is the creaky interior, but if you can put up with this you will not find a more fun car for the money, buy one... (read more)

The Citroen AX GT 1.4 in my opinion is only beaten by seriously quick machines or bikes, that is with a proper driver behind the wheel! Watch out for a worn bearing at the end of the rear axle. Many people tell me the only sane cure is to replace the whole axle! Can anyone help here as I'm off the road until it's fixed? My car goes like a turbo car with a surprising push back in the seat.

I brought my Citroen ax GT MRK1 F Reg(1989) in 2005 It had 67 on the clock, now it has 88. Front bad boy bonnet with ego vent. Blue metallic, flushed tail. Jan speed through out. lowered 40mm at front 60mm back. With 15'' alloys it does rub at the back when some one sits in back. Alpine head unit 6 by 9s at rear also two 12 inch subs which gives god sound as well as traction at rear hehe. I love it, has never let me down from the lights. Very good on fuel very easy to look after yourself.... (read more)

I think that they should stop making round bubbly cars because theres no style in them no more and theres no shape!
I think that the AX GT its a wicked car and that you should get one, if you want style, looks, performance and glamour then get this car. I've kitted my car up body kit 17inch wheels, low suspension and bright yellow. It has cost me over £3500 just to do all these things and it has taken me a year and a half to get it looking this way!

It has semi bucket seats, tinted windows, and it goes like the wind. It is so nice to drive this car; it's like flying.
The Citroen AX GT 1.4 is an amazing car! When you are going fast in it, you are pushed into your seat, and I raced with it and never lost. (read more)

My Citroen AX GT 1.4 is probably one of the best cars I have owned for speed for money! It has put a smile on my face and a frown on others when I go flying past in my little AX. Lovely little car, sticks to the road good with standard wheels! (read more)

I have owned a 91 Citroen AX GT 1.4 (carb) for around one year. I bought it for £400 unmodded with 90k on the clock, it came with a stack of bills and NO rust. I have owned dozens of 'hot hatches' and the only ones that came close were a Diahatsu Charade gtti turb and the Renault 5 turbo. I have cained this little car everywhere and it has never let me down. And it's surprisingly comfortable for a small car , and it holds the road very well. I much prefer the look over the Saxo as well. It... (read more)

I have had two Citroen AX GT's the first i kitted out with a cam which took it to 100bhp (rolling roaded). Handling is poor on the standard tyres so you need to beef them up with the same tyre size fitted to VTRs,The engine is quality on full throttle even with the mesasly 32/34 solex unit.
1/4mile in 16 flat (beat that vtr!!!)

I started off my driving career with the Citroen AX MK2 Forte 1.1, and have just upgraded to a J reg MK1 GT. These are fantastic little cars and brilliant fun. Make sure you get a good one, and keep it well maintaned and you will have little trouble. The GT is seriously quick for what it is and has been able to beat several more "desirable" and powerful cars really rather easily. The short ratio gearbox makes it difficult to get all the power down sometimes, and takes some getting used to..... (read more)

I bought my Citroen AX GT 1.4 8 months ago and I totally love it! I got it for £400 with fsh and 78k on the clock and in good condition. A friend had 2 so I became interested when I found out how fast they were for a 1.4 and I liked the look of them. The insurance is cheap for the performance (I am 17 and paying £900 a year tpft on my dads insurance) as well and mods are fairly easy to find. The 3 stud wheel fitment makes buying better alloys difficult. I have only had a problem with the... (read more)

Citroen AX GT 1.4: Have owned an AX GT for over a year and it seriously is the bees knees! It cost only £800 quid, not bad bodywork and a few mods already done. I have lowered it (speed humps are out of the question) with Spax and I got 15" Compomotive MOs. I have tinted the windows, added some 6 x 9s and a 15" sub and amp. Have also maintained this car on my own (head gasket, clutch, exhaust, brakes) and I have had no training!!!
I ran it up Santa Pod in Sept 04 and got early 17 sec.... (read more)

Bought my Citroen AX GT 1.4 a week ago and have had great fun in it since. Just line yourself up next to just about any other hot hatch at the traffic lights, let them know you want a race and watch them smirk at the 16 year old Citroen next to them. The next time you see them they'll be in your rear view mirrors. There are very few exceptions to this rule, and if you really cant beat them off the line, then nail them down a country lane, where the AX really is unbeatable. Either way, its... (read more)

I have nothing but praise for the Citroen AX GT 1.4, it looks great, handles great, it's quick, doesn't drink much fuel, never ever breaks down, only small things have gone wrong and they have cost peanuts to put right. I have a 91 J which I bought with FSH 9 months ago with 64k on the clock for 400 quid! I had it serviced and it passed its MOT with only a wheel bearing at fault. It is full original spec apart from I have had the alloys diamond cut (look sweet), and uprated the front brakes... (read more)

The Citroen AX GT 1.4 is a great car, it beats most cars when pushed. Watch out for corners as tyres fill like jelly at high speed cornering. Look at exhaust joints and drive shafts for excessive wear. (read more)

Overal I guess a bit of a mixed bag. It is good fun - when working but over the 6 years I have owned it I would think I have spent a fair few thou's on maintaining it.
Performance is more show than go especially with my sports exhaust !
At the moment the head gasket is on the way out so is losing power. (read more)

Having bought my immaculate j reg last year for a measly £600 with 42,000 on the clock i can simply say its been exhilerating. Had a Pug2051.9gti and the gt is seriously my prefered choice. The shere power of the pug simply could not outway the fun that can be had by the quickness, speed and responsiveness of the gt. Its lightweight lends to the fairly respectable 0-60 and means you can chuck it at anything you encounter without much need for the adequate brakes. Have kept it original as its... (read more)

I purchased a lovely example only a week ago. The test drive was fine , the car had some money spent on it . In the form of multispoke alloys , piper X filters, Piper exhaust, lowering springs, Paddle clutch, Big valve head and of course a high lift cam.
The drive home: It cut out at idle, or to be more precise anywhere near a junction. The standard brakes are terrible. They rattle and not just rattles there is other noises I can't account for yet? The petrol gauge lies, go round a corner at... (read more)

I've owned this citroen AX GT 1.4 sports car for only 4 weeks now (to be used as a second car-my other car is a calibra turbo) and to be honest i prefer driving gt - it's more fun. In the 4 weeks i've replaced the front brake discs and pads which were cheap at only £9 each for the discs and £20 for fast road pads-bargain. It grips as well as my calibra and my calibra has 4x4 so that says something. Fuel economy is good at around 120-130 miles out of a tenner and it runs on normal unleaded... (read more)
