1990 Renault 19 GTS 1.4 Energy from UK and Ireland
More reliable and cheaper than an Escort or Astra
Nothing has really gone wrong with this car, apart from a minor problem with the tracking.
The performance has to be admired for a 1.4. The Energy model has a respectable 80HP and acceleration in the lower gears is excellent for a medium size vehicle.
The interior trim is a little on the drab side, but the dash layout is fairly good.
Fuel economy is excellent at 40-45mpg.
There is also lots of potential for boy-racer modification.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
