Electricals, plastics, some rust on the floor...

General Comments:

It's a very good car after years of use.

It's still can be useful in the short races on public streets.

It's perfect for young couples to enjoy on picnics or something like that :P.

Summary:

Too old to rock'n'roll, but still young to die!

Faults:

- Electric parts.

- Front suspension (sailing like a boat).

- Plastic parts, and plastic on the dashboard (except very good plastic on the bumpers!)

- Lights on night driving.

- Aerodynamics (cx= 0.48!)

- Some rust on the front doors.

General Comments:

- Engine and gearbox are best parts of the Zastava 101, these "old - Italian-school elements" make me happy with the sound (engine) and easy handling (gearbox).

- It's still a good car for smaller families and people who loves Italian cars from the seventies.

- Running costs (300 DEM per year!)

I must to write this, because that text is not correct and it will be unfair if I do not comment it. The part of this text (½- It's still a good car for smaller families and people who loves Italian cars from the seventies.½) is incorrect because it is not a Italian car. Zastava 101 is a Yugoslavian car, manufactured in Serbia.

M, Croatia.

People who drive our homeland piece of junk should kill themselves before Yugo does it.

Hmmmmmm, very strange logic. Perhaps you should set the precedent.

Yugo is the type of car from witch everyone can gain benefit. With our dear Yugo welders, automehanics and car electricians can never stay out of work and happy owners can never have peace of mind. Welldone Zastava welldone Italians.

Zastava 101 is often overrated in exYu countries, as everything else that was produced in exYu. Though, some cars deserve the fame as being "good", the zastava does not, although it was most encountered car on exYu roads. In 70s it was a entry level vehicle built on a fiat platform. Today, it is a nostalgic oldtimer.

Well, my dad was born in Yugoslavia, and now since the war has obviously broke it apart, it's called bosnia. And I am 9 years old and I love cars, but I don't get why some of you say that these cars were built in like the 70s and the 80s. I think that these machines were grateful back then.
