Reliable, comfortable, a future classic
I got the car recently, so I had no problems with it yet.
It has a few problems, though:
- Front shock absorbers are totally out of service
- The front-right bearings are a little noisy.
I bought this car from a guy who had it for the last 14 years, he was the 2nd owner of the car.
This is my first car and I absolutely love it.
Because this is such a rare model here in Romania, I had to search for a year until I found one.
Except the problems I mentioned, everything else is working fine on the car.
The engine runs great, it starts very easily in the mornings.
My Laurel has the old LD28 engine; it is not very good uphills, but I'm sure this is because of the automatic transmission.
The paintwork is still the original one, without any rust. I was surprised when the previous owner told me that he didn't had a garage for the car.
Because the front shock absorbers are not working, the handling is pretty bad, especially on bumpy roads.
For spare parts, I have another Laurel, a C31 from '84, with the same LD28 engine.
I am thinking to take the shock absorbers from my old C31 and put it on the C32.
Does anybody know if this is possible? Please leave a comment here. :)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
