Seeing it says a lot, driving it says it all
-Alternator belt at 121,000 miles.
-AC belt at 121,000 miles.
-Starter at 121,000 miles.
Alternator belt, AC belt and starter went bad all within the same week, including a blown tire. I got all of those things fixed and the car is still running very well.
I bought the car for $1100 after it was sitting for many years in a different state. All four tires were cracked badly, the battery was dead and the struts needed replaced. Despite the car sitting for so many years it was jump started, warmed up and ran great.
I live in the southern area of PA and have driven the car to Washington D.C. (2 hours there 3 hours back), Germansville PA (2 1/2 hours there 3 1/2 hours back. I have driven it in rainy summer weather and snowy, ice cold winter weather and it has never left me anywhere.
The car is fast and handles like a dream. Car and Driver magazine rated it the best handling car of 1984. Even today the look of the European based design turns heads.
I plan on keeping this car forever. I want to completely restore it and pass it down through my family.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
