Summary:

The best car of more 60 I have owned

Faults:

I had to change all the hoses, the water pump, the exhaust rear box, the air conditioner charger died and the electric conection was disconnected.

I needed a crane truck four or five times to send the car to the garage.

The maintenance is expensive.

General Comments:

It's the best car I have owned. I have had more than 60 cars in my life. Actually I have eleven cars, Escorts MKI, MKII, Capris MKI, MKIII, Minis, Pajero 2.8 Tdi, etc.

When I brought the Lancia, during two months, my legs trembled when I stopped the car.

It's a future classic car, and its styling will never be obsolete.

I hope to own it forever.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
