1991 Lancia Dedra 1.6ie from Finland
Pretty good to drive, but there are big quality problems (especially in the electrics)
I did get this car FREE, so it didn't cost me anything. Ex-owner said that there are two little rust bits under the car, but he was wrong: there were just one big rusthole which begins about the taillights and continued to the front fenders, all the way. One whole winter it took to get all the rust and holes away. So rust is one BIG problem in these I think.
After about 200 km driving, I have to change radiatorthe .
Electric windows work in an uncertain way. So do the indicator lights.
Heater doesn't work.
Seats warming doesn't work.
And lastly, the clutch did broke (we haven't even repaired it yet).
I feel more familiar with American made cars - they look so much better and are more comfortable, but I must say that this Dedra did surprise me in positive way, it is quite good to drive (I mean when it is not broken).
Fuel economy is also quite good.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
