1985 Renault Fuego 2.2 liter
Piece of junk
Clutch went bad, was replaced twice (it is not my driving, I had more than 100K miles on clutches in all my other vehicles)
Radiator leaked, water hoses broke
Power steering rack leaked and had to be replaced
Engine mount broke, engine dropped...
Oil pan hit the road and broke, twice.
Rear light stopped working
Air conditioner worked on an intermittent basis...
Catalytic converter clogged, was replaced by the AMC dealer with no charge after some arguments.
This was by far the worst car I have ever owned. Almost all systems failed. Design was incredibly wrong (for example, the oil pan is very low, and the oil plug sticks down, so that if there is any obstacle on the road, or even if you drive too fast over a bump, the oil pan simply break). I could never count on it operating. It used to go to the garage more often than service us. The day I sold that piece of junk was one of the happiest days in my life!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Funny Steve I had the same car and I have to say I spent $3500 to buy it and other than new struts put $0 into it. I loved that car ran it for ten years. I would still own it, but I wore the brakes out and new parts were getting hard to find.
