Overall a great car to drive, but can cost heaps on fuel
Starter motor went shortly after buying the car.
Starter motor went again 100km later!
Front brake pads needed replacing when I bought the car.
Rear drum cylinders were replaced at 211,000.
Windscreen wipers a bit dodgy.
I bought this car in mint condition as a one owner car which still had all the original books.
The engine had been replaced at 165,000km and has now done about 45,000km on the new one.
Unfortunatley I got one that was built right at the end of 1984 so it still had the carby instead of EFI in the 1985 model.
Not great fuel economy in the carby model compared to the EFI. Despite this I still get around 400km per tank on premium which isn't too bad. The 202 is notorious for chewing fuel like there's no tomorrow anyway.
The 3 speed trimatic rocks in low gears, but can be a bit sluggish in drive.
Overall a great car to drive, but can cost heaps on fuel.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
