1993 Renault 19 16v 1.8 petrol from UK and Ireland
A uncommon, but very fast and reliable car
I've had the car for a good year now and I haven't had a ounce of trouble with it after the gearbox got replaced at service. I really like the car and it puts those 1 litre Fiesta's back to where they belong.
I'm only 17 and the car got passed over to me by my dad, and at first I thought 137bhp wasn't enough, but I was wrong, I learned that the car goes like a rocket and it doesn't feel like a 137bhp, but more.
I've done some modifications however and its made it nearly the best r19 16v in Crawley, although I'm not the kind of person who goes thrashing my car about, I care a lot about it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I'm 17 and I was wondering if your insurance is high as was wondering as I am planning to buy a Renault 19 16V.

Care is deffo needed with this motor, as thrashing it around like a boy racer leads to a lot of mechanical issues such as gear box issues stripping the teeth off the cogs and piston failure. Will wheel spin in 3rd though.
