1990 Renault 5 GT Turbo 1.4 turbo petrol from UK and Ireland
Drives like a rocket on heat
Clutch started slipping at 85,500 miles, new one fitted under warranty.
Seals broke and pistons locked onto the rear discs.
Blinding performance 0-60, 7.2 secs for a 1.4!!
Few tweaks and quite able to embarrass Cossie drivers.
Idles a little high sometimes, trip to a rolling road planned to set the fueling.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
