AXGT's are great!
Head gasket at 105k, new discs and pads (had the wrong type fitted!!), drivers seat came loose from the floor, coolant leak, carburetter goes out of tune regularly, new tyres fitted, annoying squeaks and rattles..
Apart from that, nothing major has gone wrong with this car.
Regardless of what other people may say about the AXGT I really do like this car, it is not as unreliable as you may think... and as for performance, well it is on a par with Nova GTE's when it is standard (if not slightly faster), but when it is tuned up this thing will eat Escort RS Turbos (I kid you not!). The fact that the car is so light means that every little mod you do is noticeable, and they respond well to being lowered and the extra power helps I think..
One thing - get the brakes sorted as they are pants!!
AXGT's are great!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
