Summary:

Well made, strong engine, time resistant, poor plastics

Faults:

This car is my family's first car.

My father drove it until 2000 when he purchased a new one, and therefore I took poses of it.

Until now, I have driven a lot of cars, old and new ones, but I still believe that a Renault 9 is one of the best oldies.

Though it comes up with many problems especially with the interior and exterior plastic parts, mechanically is still a lion!

Actually I'm astonished with the amount of torque that this has car has at the lower rpms (for a 1.4 litres engine).

It is well driven and predictable on the road.

General Comments:

In general I believe that it's a well made car with a strong engine that eventually had wore off from time passed by.

Though 21 years old, still roles and gets me in safety!

Summary:

A cheap car for weekends use

Faults:

Refrigeration deposit was dirty.

Clutch was worn out.

Suspension was too bumpy.

Seats were wear badly.

General Comments:

The car is not what we can call "a good looking car",and it does not has the Renault 4 charisma,however, driving it makes me feel happy.

I use it mostly to go surf, and as I live in an island (Madeira) i have to push the car to it's limit and it has not yet let me down, despite the fact that it's a 20 year old car.

I love it and will try to keep it as long as I can.
