Summary:

Great space and silence four touring without a 3L motor

Faults:

Thinks that gone wrong are the cables inside the motor, a failure in one relay started to burn all electrical cables reaching the panel to the opposite turn light.

Also the RPM gouge fall and climb without control. Most of the times works fine.

Finally the small size of the speakers at the front, they are 5' 1/4 but the deepness is poor.

General Comments:

After all that bad points I have to say that is a lovely car. This R9 was made in Argentina, 1991 but with interiors of 1992. The model is the highest of the range for R9s, the TXE, with AC or AA, power steering, power crystals, fog lights, etc, very good for a cheap car. Actually it has GNC (Natural Gas Compressed) cylinder in the back and I still have a good space for other stuff.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
