1989 Isuzu I-Mark RS 1.6 DOHC
One of the axles broke down, but it was minor problem considering the fact that it took Canadian Tire 4 sets of different axles to be ordered until the right one came. Other than that the car has it's minor defects like a leaking sunroof which is power operated.. it needed minor adjustment but it is fine now.
Rear wheel brake cylinders had to be changed due to faulty rubber seals... other than that this is a great car to have and pleasure to drive in.
I love the uniqueness of the car. Very peppy and great ability to take nice corners especially the exits from the highway.
The gearbox is amazing due to nice smooth shifting, and the clutch like no other considering the fact that it is the same clutch used in the turbo model.
The brakes need little bit of work on but they will stop you when needed.
Interior is very elegant and at the same time simple and easy to clean.
I would love to buy this vehicle again if it was still in production.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I too had the pleasure of owning a car like this. And I would also purchase another if it ever was put back into production. Maybe we should petition the manufacturer...

I to have this make of car it is two door and red with a 159,000 miles on it. It has a DOHC 16 VALVE engine and lotus handling which is excellent for corners exceeding one hundred miles an hour, trust me I found out. I have replaced both CV axles, struts, bushings, shocks, sway bar clamps, tie rods and the rear axle assembly quite a few repairs, but fun to drive.
