A little of money in the bank is needed with this GREAT car!
I like my car more than anything, it gives some problems sometimes but what car is perfect?
I'll try to remember everything (jaja):
- Around 115.000 kms the cambelt snapped so all valves, gaskets, belts were replaced.
- Around 130.000 kms the auto gearbox failed so 70% of internal parts were replaced.
- At 140.000 kms the entire auto gearbox system was changed to manual transmission so 5 days of work became the best investment of the car, the transplant was 100% successful, only adjusting the clutch cable twice was needed.
- At 135.000 kms a new radiator.
These were the major things. I've replaced fan switches, bulbs, electric windows motors, main headlights, corners, fog lights, REAR WINDSHIELD (was stolen), stereo, ALTERNATOR, A/C compressor, fuel pump, oil pump (the car fell off the truck when the auto gearbox failed), engine mounts, carb kits, potentiometer, oil pressure sender..... Do I continue?
I've learned a lot with this car and because it's my first car I like it so much. Most of repairs can be prevented with a little care and prevention (cambelt and auto gearbox oil change!)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
