A car that has to be conserved, because there will never be anything similar again
Engine recently started to lose quite a lot of oil.
Some rusty spots appear regularly on the rear wheel arches, floor pans and beams.
I like the looks of this car. To me it's a true design classic, however still unrecognised.
The combination of a floating suspension, good roadholding and super-precise steering is still unmatched in its class (and far beyond).
It's not the quickest car and can get noisy if pushed, but normally power is sufficient, and only on long travels a 5th gear is badly missing.
Seating and boot are quite roomy for the car's size.
The key to a reliable GS is regular (and sometimes expensive) maintenance.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
