Fantastically comfortable German solid car
Not a lot. When I bought the car, it needed a service, so oil filler, spark plugs etc.
The aerial was bent, so it needed a new one, but that was literally it. Oh, and the aircon needed re-gassing.
This old car was lovely. Totally reliable, never had anything go wrong, even though it was 20 years old when I bought it.
The ride was comfortable; it was like driving a wing back studded leather arm chair... so not sporty in the slightest, but that somehow didn't matter. This car encouraged a relaxed drive, and felt like it was made of granite.
The spec was impressive too; a 1989 car with central locking, ABS, dual zone air con, full leather interior and cruise control. All that for only £400! The only thing that it needed was a 5 speed auto box, as it revved high on the motorway. Not that you could hear it, as it was very quiet inside, but it did mean it used rather a lot of fuel. She averaged around 26mpg, which in the end was the reason why I had to sell her.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
