1985 Chevrolet Spectrum 4 cylinder from North America
The first car I will always love
Timing Belt Broken within 1,000 miles of having it replaced.
CV Joints Replaced.
Trip odometer stopped working.
Would not idle with A/C running.
A/C Compressor Died at 128,000 miles.
This car was a hand-me-down that I still love although it no longer runs.
While my Spectrum was not peppy in the least, it was an attractive hatchback. I had the optional instrument panel, which while convenient actually was a bit depressing when watching the Tachometer while accelerating. The interior was much more spaceous than most mid-sized sedans and The Control Panel design was used for 10 more years in Isuzu's other vehicles.
When The engine gave up the Ghost I spent years trying to convince my father to replace the little Isuzu engine to no avail, Finally He Bought me a Corsica to take to college, it more than compensates but I still miss my little Chevy/Isuzu.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
