1990 Fiat Uno Turbo 1.3 from Poland
A fast runabout
Blown head gasket due to overheating of the engine.
Overheating caused by a faulty fan switch.
Cracked exhaust manifold.
Brakes seem to keep on braking despite releasing the brake pedal. I have not located the problem yet.
Rust on front fenders as well as the under-body of the car.
I have owned several fast cars. Starting with the Golf Gti 16v finishing of on a Dodge Viper which I still have. However I always wanted to own a UNO because if the fact that it is so practical around town. So when the opportunity arose, a Turbo model it had to be.
Performance is a strong point of this car and it leaves many other, more expensive new cars far behind.
When driven lightly, it is economical, but when driven hard it can drain the pocket.
Some extra power will be required and it will follow soon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
