1988 Fiat X1/9 1.5 from UK and Ireland
Terrific and exhausting
Brakes, electrical, RUST... all are problems. Engine is super reliable.
Best car I've ever owned. It's so much fun - it really is hard to put into words how much I have loved and hated this car. I bought a rough one and even with all my efforts it just never got too much better, you really need the facilities to fix this car. It's not a mechanically complex car, it's just that they rust and need to be fixed right! Having said that, it only ever broke down electrically and any faults were ones I inherited.
If you have a garage to store it and are handy with tools, they can be beauties! And the drive - better than anything on the road at 10 times the cost. Really terrific and infuriating.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
