A comfortable workhorse
The cental locking is intermittent in behaviour.
My car is fitted with a Magnet Marelli distributor, I lost all power to the coil and after much searching this turned out to be a relay wire corroded away underneath the distributor plate. The relay sends a demand to the coil for the pulse. A replacement cost £52.00 inc VAT and took 15 minutes to fit.
The petrol tank dropped out from the bottom of the car. The tank is held in place by a cradle similar to that of the spare wheel, it is secured to the frame by a single bolt and metal plate, the plate had broken away. Potentially lethal as you can imagine.
This car is an excellent work horse and very comfortable, ideal for a large family or, like me, for someone who has to carry large loads for my job.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
