Cheap and ugly
Bad connection when regulating the fan. You have to turn it up and down until you get connection.
Very hard to start at sub-zero degrees Celsius.
The outer velocity joint broke down, had to change the drive-shaft.
The front-left suspension broke and the spring ate the tire to the cord.
The engine stalls, no warning, just stalls sometimes.
Basically, if you get a Renault 5 you get what you pay for, not much.
The engine is very small and weak.
It's very small inside the cabin and the seats are uncomfortable.
Handling is OK if your in the city, but once you get out on the country-side with roads that actually turn you realize it is kind of odd they used to drive rally with versions of this car.
You get an awful long distance compared to what you pay for it though. Buying it is cheap and it does not consume much fuel.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
