A piece of crap.........


This car is a piece of crap, I have had nothing but problem after problem after problem since I got it......

The starter went out, had to replace the distributor cap.

The fuel filler etc... and now I'm told 2 parts I need for the car are nowhere to be found... that I would have to go back to Japan for them, that is a crock...

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

How can you say, you have done 0 miles :-).

Get a GTti and all will be forgiven (you can't help it), they are designed for rallying, pretty reliable, low insurance and fast as hell.

Guess you are looking in the wrong place for the parts?
