1993 Renault 19 RT 1.4 8V from UK and Ireland
A good car
When first purchased:
Handbrake needed adjustment.
Wheel arches needed touched up.
General service including coolant flushed, as the car was getting hot quickly, but not overheating.
Rear window seal needed to be replaced.
Aerial needed to be replaced.
I absolutely love the old girl. Bought it off an old couple who were giving up driving. The car had always been garaged and the paint work is like new, as well as the interior.
The car had always been serviced, however in the last year or so they had not had it serviced as they were driving it less and less. There is the odd little bump and scrape, but barely anything.
Inside is just as comfy as my old Rover; the chairs are like armchairs. The dash is simple and well laid out, and the car still smells new.
The car is very economical, but the performance is not the best; you need to rev it high in fourth gear, as in fifth it can struggle.
But overall a very good car for 20 odd years old; a bargain at 450 pounds.
Sadly however I have had to buy a smaller car due to eye problems, as I do not want to bash the old girl. So she is safely tucked away in my garage, waiting for her return to the road.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
