Summary:

A very nice car with the standards of the yesterday before

Faults:

Central door lock strikes at 12 000, 31 000 and 77 000 kilometers.

The petrol pump was changed at 124 000 km.

Accumulator went wrong at 141 000 km (at age of 7 years, a very good Varta was it!)

The injector was adjusted in March 2003.

General Comments:

Oh, my good old Nexia! I lost you in the last month by a crash. You was so injured that you are unrepairable. I am very sad without you. You was a really poorly maintained car - no air condition, no airbag, no ABS, - but a really fine power steering, electronic door lock and electronic windows. Your petrol consumption was really acceptable, only 6,9 liters per 100 km, a good average by the very many driving in the cities and a lot of "deep flights" on the German highways. Your engine was no more silent, and some spots of corrosion was on your backside region.

You must know, I loved you, I am very sad, that you are no more repairable. I hate the ugly transporter which damaged you on the Czech mountain road!

Rest in peace, Nexia!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
