An excellent luxury cruiser


Heater stopped working at 21,000 miles.

Brake pads needed replacing at 26,000 miles.

General Comments:

The '74 Granada 3.0 litre is a smooth and comfortable luxury saloon.

It has great performance and handles like its on rails.

It is also very well built and almost faultlessly reliable.

It was good value for money in the showroom, but running costs weren't cheap.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
