1974 Triumph 1500 1.5
The biggest lemon I ever owned
What didn't go wrong? Constant problems.
It spent a couple of days per week at the local dealer being repaired. It was only three years old.
I got this car as a high school graduation present. It was definitely a head-turner and fun... at first, but was an incredibly slow, poor-performing car. My mother's VW bug was faster.
These cars are very, very small.
Two weeks after I sold it, the new owner called, furious that he'd just found out it needed $1500 worth of work done. Buyer beware!
I suppose if I owned it now with my current mechanical knowledge, I could work on it myself; but given the tiny engine and overall size, I wouldn't be interested.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
