Summary:

A wild small tank..

Faults:

Bad suspension, low performance, engine noises, small trunk, very sensitive seats (like a Jeep), general noises (from screws & trunk), mechanical & electrical problems like an Italian car. The Yugo 45 is a Fiat 128 with a new face...

General Comments:

Small nice car, cheap & not expensive! Best choice for cities with roads or not roads! (like Athens - Greece).

1986 Yugo 45 0.9 gasoline

Year of manufacture1986
Engine and transmission 0.9 gasoline

Reliability marks 5 / 10
Comfort marks 4 / 10
Dealer Service marks 10 / 10
Running Costs (higher is cheaper) 10 / 10
Overall marks (average of all marks)
6.6 / 10

Faults:

Lights, accelerator pedal, direction system, ignition system, generally many things, radiator, but for a 15 year old car they aren't so many. And the good thing is that anyone can repair it and with little money!

General Comments:

Not so bad for the city, plenty of acceleration from 0 to 40 km's, the direction system is not good enough but the braking on the other hand is not bad. It has never left me due to engine problems (only over heating problem). It is a car from another era so that's why I love it!
