1991 FSO Polonez 1.6


Very nice car for hard work, but no luxury


Nothing serious, sure it had some repairs from time to time, but after all it still in good shape.

General Comments:


Very respectful engine (1600 cc / 16 valves / 4 Cylinders) that runs perfectly since 1991.

Big and comfortable car of large storage area with the ability of folding the backseats (never used it).

Body is strong, well-build and reliable.

The car is high enough for rough roads and with fair suspensions (dampers).

VERY low running cost which is a great advantage.


Fuel Consumption is HIGH... which is a major disadvantage for me.

Had some troubles with the electrical system, but it was fixed with no major replacements.

Had troubles with the brakes, but also done with no problems.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
