Brugttest: Is the Aygo no go?

Cars by triplets Citroën C1, Peugeot 107 and Toyota Aygo have been our time Volkswagens: Cheap, simple cars, that gets great gas mileage and has low operating costs. In Denmark this end of the range a market share of 21 percent, which you cannot see anywhere else in Europe, and if you take the last four years of car sales, is the Aygo overall, the most sold car here at home.

Here, we triplets together for a test, when the mechanical is 99 percent identical and differ only significantly from each other by a different front - and hækdesign. They produced all three in the same factory in the Czech republic, and it is Toyota, who has delivered the car 1 litre, trecylindrede petrol engine, while the French have contributed with a 1.4-liter diesel engine.

Only for four persons
When you start to look for a used one, there are a few things you should be aware of. For example, the Aygo only ESC-stabiliseringssystemet as standard on selected models, while the C1 got it in may 2008 and 107 in 2009.

another thing is that the triplets only have braces for four persons, and must not, therefore, carry five people. Bagsædepladsen is the message, and the trunk is too small for anything other than a few soft bags or carrier bags. So if you're looking for a cheap family car, you should look elsewhere.

Noise and limp gear
It recommends itself not as langtursbil, as it fills the cabin with wheel - and engine noise, but you can live with it, it's a perky little car with direct steering, excellent dynamics and a willing and strong small gasoline engine, which, unfortunately, must be pulled with a vague gearbox.

however, It is not only the visible quality, as you go on compromise with, for the factory have cut a few shortcuts to keep the price down. It applies, as mentioned, sound-proofing and – perhaps more importantly for a used car on rustbeskyttelsen, which seems a little lenient.

An Aygo owner has said it very precisely: 'Quality, is it probably the best Citroën/Peugeot ever, but it is the worst Toyota'.

CHECKLIST

Bodywork
the Car has only half inderskærme the front and none at the rear wheels, and there is only sporadic sprayed a wear layer on the floor of the vehicle. Therefore, should a used to have additional corrosion protection, if it has not already gotten it. On the first of the baby boom, there has been a leak by ventilationskanalen on the tailgate, which can lead the water into the reservehjulsbrønden.

Undercarriage
Chassis and brakes should not cause any problems. Bagbremserne can, however, be worn out before the expected. The access tube to the muffler can crack after a few years, since the weld is not optimal, and the exhaust pipe is generally made of a cheap material and will rust quickly. Please be aware, if your vehicle is equipped with the ESC system, since it was not standard on all versions.

Interior
The interior is simple, and plastikmaterialerne is of a simple quality, but it is durable. Some of the first vintages were plagued by leaky dørlister, so water has penetrated into and settled in the floorpan, which can cause corrosion. Check out below the gulvmåtterne.

Engine/transmission
A part have changed the clutch already after 50,000-60,000 miles, and if the warranty has expired the cost is typically between 6000 and 7000 kr. In connection with the mini in 2009 the vehicle received a more powerful sized clutch that has cured the problem. You may experience a sluggish gearshift, which in some cases can be remedied by switching to a better gear oil. Part owners have also changed the water pump, which was incorrectly designed.
