1986 Chevrolet Nova Limited Edition 1.6 from North America
Front/rear brakes, gas tank/filler neck, all fuel lines, exhaust.
I haven't owned this car very long, but I do have a few things to say.
It is an all around good car.
It's pretty peppy for a 4 banger. The 1.6 is quicker than all 3 of my Plymouth Reliant 2.2's.
But in-spite of all that, I've had it 2 weeks and it's in the shop right now. I'm doing all the work on it in my auto tech class. Well I brought it in because I had got 3 tickets; loud exhaust, unsafe tire, and speeding :<
Anyways, my fuel gauge started acting up and I had a fuel leak, so I dropped the tank to fix it, only to my dismay, to find lots and lots of rust. My filler neck had holes the size of golf balls in it, and my fuel lines were so brittle, they broke right off the tank. Well I tried to order the new parts like the filler neck and the sending unit like piece (with no fuel pump, that's under the hood on this car), only to find out the Limited Edition on the side of the car means rare, hard to find parts. Napa, AutoZone or Parts America had the parts I needed, and I have to go through a dealership for the parts. Despite all that, I still love this car as of right now. C'mon, I bought it for a hundred bucks after dumping thousands into my last 3 K-cars. And it did sit in my friend's yard for like a year and a half with NO gas in it, so fuel system problems were expected. <3rd owner>
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
