1986 Dacia 1310 TLE 1.3 petrol
An multi environment bargain
The water pump was leaking.
The radiator is leaking.
The gearbox cracked and it was replaced.
The seats are a mess.
The chassis is deformed.
The suspension is wear out.
A very sturdy car. It won't quit, even if the sole maintenance was an rebuilt engine.
Very good for off-road, it doesn't care about rocks and wood and all the debris you may find on forest roads.
It keeps 110 Km/h on highway without problems, except for some overheating; it is equipped with an electric fan so this is not a big issue.
Nice speed-up in the 3rd, can hit 90Km/h.
Underpowered, but furious with only 55 horse power.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
