Summary:

The unknown classic

Faults:

As the car got older, naturally, more things needed to be replaced or fixed. The clutch and gearbox was replaced at 100000km, the water pump at around 300000, together with a new paint job, the passenger front door after a theft attempt, and all the other regular maintenance, as brakes, oil, etc.

General Comments:

My first car, loved it, the biggest backseats the world has ever seen, nice 6 cylinder sound, nice looking original RS body kit.

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