1988 Lada Riva 1.5L from UK and Ireland
A simple means of travel that was generally reliable
Radiator fan switch failed.
Rust on outriggers.
A simple, no frills, easily maintained and generally reliable car, using old, simple and trusted technology. No computers meant simplicity of servicing. Only real gripe was the amount of rust after 6 years - extensive welding was required to the floor and chassis! Lada claimed their cars were made of very thick steel and well rustproofed - in my experience this was not the case.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
