1980 Dacia 1310 1.300 gasoline from Romania
A good car after all
Well...of course as you can see, I'm from Romania and maybe I can't be objective, but everything what gone wrong whit the car was easy and cheap to fix even for a Romanian, about 90% from repairs I made, I didn't use a service workshop!The max amount summa for repairs in all these years is under 2000$...20 years!!!
This is not a sport car... but if you are interested you change your carburetor whit a double one and you might have some performance... of course you will use around 20l/100Km fuel.
Very cheap and reliable!
Not so comfortable.
You might have problems whit the heat in winter.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

The Dacia is a fine car. I have a 1985 Dacia 1310 and it hasn't had one problem and the body integrity is nearly perfect. I've never seen an American car like a Ford or Chevy last that long while still holding it's body integrity and cleanliness. Even though Dacia's aren't the best car in the world, they can get you from point A to point B comfortably. Plus the 55 horsepower engine can take you to 144 km/h quickly. All the American cars have about 250 horses, but only go up to about 200 km/h. It doesn't matter what anyone else says, the Dacia is still the most popular car in Romania.
