Summary:

An easy car with a good engine

Faults:

The clutch is very poor and had to be changed 3 times in 8 years.

The chassis is very heavy at front.

The gearbox is too long.

The brakes are not very reliable.

General Comments:

Great!The 1.4 Sunny is a great car. Its 87 hp are a little bit weak, as they only start working at 6000 RPM.

The under-steering of the car is easily compensated with the help of the handbrake.

Brakes as well as the clutch are the weak points of the Sunny, as they are very, very, weak indeed!

Interiors are not the best at market, but are better than the Opel or the Golf.

The gearbox handle is very well positioned, as well as the steering wheel.

A 195/R14' wheels are a very good option to choose. The factory one's 175/R13 are very lousy on sharp curves and wet asphalt.

All those comments seems pretty intelligent and right. my bro has a 94 Sunny SLX with the 1.4 and his clutch is dying these last weeks.

Say, could you provide us with the right setting for the carburetor, 'cauz the car seems to eject not burned fuel. Thx in advance.

About the gearbox:

I love it that way... It's very reliable and it's what gives an excellent acceleration performance...

Excellent 2nd and 3rd shifts..

About the right front window:

I got the same problem but the repair can be done by yourself... just a little bit of oil.
