The brightest jewel in the crown of Renault
The thermostat was broken -Replaced it for $10.
The fourth-level of the air-blower motor did not run (I repaired it - the switch was dirty).
The upper plastic door panels on the inside were partially peeled off (probably from the sun).
Otherwise - nothing serious.
I bought the car from a Bulgarian for $3000, who acquired it from a German diplomat.
I was so pleased with the deal that for additional $1000 I installed an air-conditioner (from a smashed car), and liquid gas fuel system.
The interior is typically French - with lots of space, luxury and a huge trunk.
Still - the version with rear drum brakes is a little bit weak on braking (I regret I could not find a car in this condition with rear disc brakes and anti-locking brake system).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
