A good car from a good, underfunded company
Turn signal cam was worn.
Replaced the steering column with a tilt column.
Window feltie on the driver's door were all but gone when I got it. A 40 year old '70s car; not surprising. Driver's seat belt was worn, and hard to retract and extract.
Driver's seat foam feels like it disintegrated.
Driver's door doesn't look closed when it is indeed closed. Bought another door off a Gremlin, and will install it when I get it painted to match the snow white exterior.
Rear brakes were gone and I did a complete brake job on the rear; new everything. Brakes work very good now.
Despite the wear and tear that was on certain parts of the car, I just love its character.
The Hornet is so easy to work on. After working on Mercedes for exactly 30 years, it is a joy to fix and a labor of love.
The power steering is way over boosted, and it's hard to do S curves accurately.
The interior size is perfect for me. My snob wife refuses to ride in it (that's reason 2 why I bought it).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
