1987 Hyundai Pony L 1.4L 97ci 74hp from North America
First bought the car drove for about a month no problems. After that the first thing that went was the carb, it had to be rebuilt, shortly after that the water pump was leaking I replaced that myself. Ran fine for another month, then I replaced the oil pressure switch, simple 5 minute job. This is when big trouble started, the gas tank, and steel gas line were rusting, so it would get into the carb and mess it up so it would not run. Took it to the garage they cleaned the tank and the carb and out 2 fuel filters, within a week the car was back in the garage, after about 3 weeks of the same thing I finally got the car towed away, I was sick of breakdowns on the side of the road.
The car was in excellent shape, and had over 120 psi in every cylinder! I just couldn't deal with it anymore.. The car was shaky on the highway and lots of engine noise, but what do you expect for the price you probably paid.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

The car's 20 years old, was probably abused, and probably from a harsh climate. Can you really complain?

Dude, the Car is the cheapest of cheap cars and it's older than my grandfather (in equivalent car years of course). Have the decency to let the poor guy rest.
