1987 Yugo GV 2D Hatchback 4 cylinder
Fun, affordable, dependable and I wish I had another just like it!
Very little has gone wrong with this car! Maybe it is the last living Yugo in the U.S.?!?!
I have replaced the normal wear and tear parts-new tires, air filter, oil filter, and some light bulbs.
Last Christmas I needed a new gas pump, and today we are replacing the starter. I will say that the inside door handles and speaker cover have come loose. But I hope that does not stop us from getting another 10,000 miles out of it.
I drove this car 7 days a week for the last 3 years. It does not have air conditioning, which we have missed to a certain extent. But we are able to travel quite a bit on very little money as it still gets 39MPG on the highway. When gas prices surge, it makes very little difference in my pocketbook with this little car!
Some people joke about a 4-cylinder small car getting run over on the highway, but my Yugo keeps up with the best of them! It does up to 90 MPH! It fills up at about $8-$9, and runs for a week on that. The color (yellow?) is not the most attractive and the interior is the same. But for an inexpensive car, it has been well worth every penny they sold it for when it was new!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I was a single parent with three boys and was on the go with all of their activities. I bought my Yugo from a friend that sold it to me for $450, in three years it never left me stranded... no matter how cold it was outside, it always started right up in the mornings, no matter how long I drove it, it was always ready to keep going. I have had several cars over the years, my Yugo, years later, I still have... it needs another motor now, but I won't let it go... my Jaguar will be sold before I sell my Yugo... it was what helped my family through the worst of times... :)
I have 2 1987 Yugo Cars, I was given one, and paid $100.00 for the other. The one I drive has 97,000 miles on the od. I really enjoy this car, and drive it daily. I live in the mountains and it is really great in these hills. Also very dependable, I bought it from a one owner and it is in great shape. Friends laugh at my Yugo sometimes, but I laugh when I pass by gas stations. Great little car!!
I love my Yugo. I’m on eBay all the time looking to buy T-shirts, cups and other items that would show my love for the car. It’s dependable and very cheap to drive. I filled it up today for $26. That’s at almost $4 a gallon. The attention is unreal. People from all walks of life ask me about the car. Couple days ago a lady in an expensive looking Mercedes Benz admired the car while we were at a red light. It reminded her of the good times when she had one almost 20 years ago, she said. Anyways, I have a lot of fun with the Yugo her in Florida even with out the A/C. People laugh at the Yugo. I laugh at the gas pump. ;-)
My 1987 Yugo has 135,000 miles and uses no oil between oil changes. I have other cars, but can't say the same for them. The only work I have had done is front brake pads, and oil and filter change. However, I have had a problem finding shocks for it.
