Reliable and tough as nails!


Nothing wrong with it except typical Swedish winter-rust. Had to be constantly sanding the lower rocker panels so that it wouldn't rust completely through.

General Comments:

The car was really great. It was the first car me and my parents had, and I remember many trips on that car.

It started even in the worst weather conditions, freezing, below zero, rain, heat, come what may.

No frills and no excitement, just a good, reliable, light family vehicle.

Never had to spend a dime on it, and it always felt firm and steady on the controls. Didn't spend too much fuel, or leak any oil, or any of those problems.

Just a good old worker's car. Reliable and tough as nails!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
