The car has not left me stranded since I bought it 2 years ago.
There are some niggling problems. The most annoying is that the interior lights do not come on when the doors are opened (only when boot or bonnet are opened) and the headlamp warning pinger is not coming on - part of the same problem. I think I will need to replace the electronic brain to fix this.
The ventilation does not work very well, I can never get enough cold air into the car unless I open a window, and this is too noisy on the motorway. This should only be an issue on cars without air conditioning.
There is one minor squeak from the dash sometimes, and the central air vents do not stay properly in the dash; one side sticks out slightly.
The headlights are not very good. I need to replace one of the H4 connectors (slightly melted - previous owner must have used bulbs too strong).
The brakes are appalling on 75s. I hope to fit braided hoses and up-rated front discs/pads.
One of the rear petrol lines rusted through about a year ago. It was repaired cheaply by my mechanic.
The doors need to be slammed hard or the car thinks they have not been closed properly.
Previous owner had not wired the Momo steering wheel horn buttons properly. This took me 2 minutes to fix.
One door lock solenoid failed. Again, it cost about £5 to replace, and took no more than 30 minutes to do myself.
I had replaced the driver's mirror because it was seized. This cost very little, and took about 1 hour to do.
The plastic clips, which hold the outer end of the rubber gaiters on the steering rack, both broke. They are very easily replaced. I used zip ties.
Some of the bushes in the rear suspension have been replaced, and some of the front ones will need replacing.
Replaced exhaust from the cat back to the tail; the old one was holed. The exhausts on 75 3.0 cars sit very low and take a lot of bangs. Apparently stainless steel ones don't last, because the are too inflexible. I don't know if this is true.
The radiator has lost about 10 percent of the metal leaves, but still works. This is going to need changing soon.
The hydraulic cam belt tensioner on these cars always goes wrong and leaks oil down the front of the car. Apparently, there are some better, newer replacements available, but I just had my mechanic fit a new hydraulic one.
The interior is very lightly-made, and though the fabric seems to wear well, some of the seams on mine have split and the foam is crumbling. This makes a mess under the seat.
