This is a long one.
Alternator packed in two times.
Starter motor needed reconditioning.
New fuel pump.
Passenger seat came loose from the floor.
Major water leak from the rear window.
Fuel gauge gives a faulty reading.
Rusted just below the fuel cap.
Needed new headlights.
Centre exhaust snapped in half (going over speed bumps too fast).
Fog lights stopped working.
Cylinder head gasket needed replacing.
Valve stem oil seals needed replacing (using 2 liters of oil every 1000 miles).
Passenger door handle snapped off the door.
Driver's seat starting to come loose from the floor (will have to weld it back down).
Once working properly this is a very fun car to drive, very fast for a 1400 and not bad on the petrol.
I have had so many things go wrong with mine in the last 6 months that I nearly sold it. But now it is running sweet and nothing is going wrong (touch wood).
If anyone is thinking of buying one, here are some of the things you should do:-
Lower the suspension.
Get a new back box.
Put on 15 inch alloy wheels (but remember they're 3 stud).
Buy a K&N air filter.
Then you will have one nice looking, fast car.
