1993 Renault 19 16v 1.8 from UK and Ireland
High performance, high maintenance, good, fast fun!
Too early for me to tell.
Muscley and fast, but best suited to motorway driving when it will cruise happily and smoothly at 90mph.
Dislikes rough surfaces and is prone to "a firm ride", thank god for the well padded seats!
Fascia looks dated and despite the onboard computer has a clock that looks like it came out a Lada!
Impresses the boy racers in their XR3is and easily leaves them standing!
Requires constant weekly checks of the oil and coolant levels to ensure a problem free ownership - guzzles oil... don't use the cheap stuff, only synthetic or semi-synthetic.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
