The Lancia Prisma is the greatest!


The rear brake pads were soon worn out when I bought my Prisma.

The Magnetti Marelli starter motor and the generator (alternator) were faulty.

Some minor electrical problems with the information panel and the rev. counter.

I have changed some pipes for the coolant and the oil.

General Comments:

This is a great car! I just love it!

Some people say that italian cars are poorly assembled, but that's a LIE!

I think this model is a masterpiece of the italian car manufacturers.

The car is very stable. It stays on the road like a tank. No sidewind can affect its way.

The interior is huge, and comfortable.

No dashboard from that era looks as good as this.

The engine after these kilometers too.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
