Faults:

Little ancillary items such as distributor, alternator, fuel pump and radiator.

General Comments:

The major mechanicals seem to be solid. At 164,000 miles I still have all the original major mechanicals (even the clutch).

Fantastically practical workhorse.

Rust can be a problem with these early models.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
