I agree -terrible machine ( lawnmower) aweful construction, expensive parts and terrible reliability -mine had done 12.000 and been fully serviced when the gearbox broke up -end of car --and it was serviced by an authorised aixam dealer who did not want to know. avoid

“Its a QUADRICYCLE”

Written on: 24/03/2012 by michael76 (1 review written)

Don't expect a car !! it is not . Well , not that we are used to in the UK .In France you can drive this without passing a driving test and it is sometimes designated a moped car . Going at 60 mph will just ask for trouble with bits breaking up quickly. We keep this little car at 30 mph and very very rarely squeeze it up to 40 mph with 2 passengers . It can take four people around town though it will be best if the two back seat passengers are small and already good friends . The back seats… Read Full Review

I agree. A huge draw on finances. Bought one on 2002 plate. Two new gearboxes, front brakes that seized regularly refusing to release, warped rear drum, heating system locked in hot position, broken exhaust mounts, damage to radiator that needed to be fixed, and several exploding drive belts. Three rear end shunts good fuel economy though and is it traveled 53,000 miles loaded with me and two kids in just over 6 years!

Written on: 14/05/2008

The Aixam 500SL is a fantastic little runaround for short distances at low-ish speeds ie. school run, shopping, taking the kids to the park etc. Not for dual carriageways or motorways where average speeds exceed 50mph as you will be overtaken by everyone and cause a hazard. The one I bought had £1,600 worth of work needed on it as just about everything was on its last legs. Beware when buying secondhand and make sure you source a local garage that knows how to service and repair these cars as… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/04/2005 by reed7331 (1 review written)

when i brought my Aixam 500 SL City Car it seemed like a good deal -
good m.p.g, you can drive on a motorcycle licence, as I did not drive to far the lack of top speed did not matter and there are no hills where I live - then I woke up. I have averaged 6000 miles a year, belts have been changed, drive shafts, engine mounts, exhaust pipes, brake calipers - the list goes on and the prices for parts are high ie will not supply caliper seal for a few pence but you must buy a complete brake… Read Full Review

“The real beauty of the Aixam 500 is that it can be...”

Written on: 26/06/2004 by Bertie (27 reviews written)

The real beauty of the Aixam 500 is that it can be driven on a full motorcycle licence. Maintenance is minimal and a quick wash only is needed to keep the vehicle clean and no polishing is needed.

Due to the size of the engine, the top speed is just over 60 MPH and performance is adequate for non-motorway roads and more than adequate for 'local' runs. This is NOT a motorway cruiser!

On a long run, about 110 MPG can be achieved even when driven foot down. Stiff hills around the 1 in 6 or 7… Read Full Review
