Default Newie from the sticks

Hi all, New to the forum, i've been browsing a few threads for tips and advice,

i've just bought my first Saxo, 02 plate 1.1 Desire, 1 previous owner, 35000 on the clock, bodywork is as new, really spotless all over, garaged all its life, only downside is the gear selector, it just seems a little fragile to me, i feel like if i changed gear a little too vigorously i would snap something, Admittedly i am used to driving fords which have a more 'secure' feeling gearbox compared to my saxo,

is this normal and a 'french car' thing or am i being a cloth fisted oaf? i am currently changing gear very 'delicately' and being careful to not snap anything, i just wondered if it was normal


Great site too ... Very useful

Not to worry anyway, a fucking great mercedes motorhome hit me from behind today, totally wiped out my saxo, shunted me 20 feet, car is a bit shorter now, best thing is - The wanker isnt insured!! Flashy 30 grand motorhome uninsured!! prick

Well, welcome to the forum

and goodbye! haha

No luck man As long as you're okay, the seats aren't exactly supportive in these!

Just so you know, the gear selector thing is normal. The gear changes should be light and precise, probably had a worn main selector ball - it's soft rubber. If you pick yourself up another cheap saxo or 106
The rain kept a trollin'
