1996 Lancia Dedra LE 1.9 turbo diesel


Sturdy, powerful, comfortable and fun


The head gasket, clutch, belts at around 150000.

The sun roof frame has rotted away and subsequently leaks.

The drivers seat is starting to shed its fur, but to be expected I suppose.

The alternator belt was squealing so replaced after 1 year of noise. Lazy I know.

General Comments:

I have had relatively little to do on the car, just the brakes, belt and service's since ownership.

I like the power for such a family car.

The comfort, loads of it.

Bags of boot space.

And do you really think someones going to steal it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
