1986 Dacia 1300 1.3 petrol engine
An all-around good car!
I bought this car in 1986 as a brand
new model. It has never been in any serious mechanical trouble.
The paint job has been remade twice.
The engine is in very good shape taking
7 litres outside of town and 8.5 in the city.
Even trough it is not that fast and
glamorous I think it is one of the best east-European cars ever built
The good thing is that you can find spares anywhere.
The car is very reliable.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The dacia is nothing more than a Renault 12 laid low by poor build quality. If you want a good one, search out a Renault original.

Your car was probably good because it was an EXPORT model. The cars that were sold on the romanian market were really really lousy.
