A money eater!


This car has been having problems, ever since I bought it. Here`s what went wrong:

Replaced cylinder head and gasket.

Replaced all four brakes.

New engine mount installed.

Rust on the chassis.

New exhaust system installed.

Slipping clutch.

Electrical problems.

Engine stalling once in a while.

General Comments:

This car is probably the worst car I have ever owned. If you buy this car, be prepared to visit the garage frequently and expect high repair bills. I will definitely not buy a car from this manufacturer again.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I have a friend that had the same car and even more problems. He dumped thousands into it but it kept going wrong. He even had the original Quad 4 rebuilt. He got really screwed up with bad computer codes so he decided to sell it. So I bought it cheap. AND YOU KNOW WHAT!! I got to pull the cylinder head off this weekend to replace a oil pressure relief valve. Oh well.
