The car I trust the most


I've had many problems with the general electrical system due to the old wiring, but I've managed to rewire most of it, and I've also changed some electrical components.

General Comments:

This car has been in my family for over 30 years. I feel this car is more reliable than any other NEW car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
