1990 Renault 9 TXE 1.6 petrol from Colombia


Excellent, reliable and inexpensive family car


When I bought the car it was not new, I had to change the shock absorbers and bearings.

I had to change at 150k the water pump.

At 190k, the ignition switch.

General Comments:

It's an excellent family car. Even though it has 222,000 it runs great. The motor is in perfect condition and I still intend to keep it for a while.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Well, mine has some 350K odd kilometers (about 220k miles) on it with the original engine. Still running strong-ish. I know I'll need to overhaul the engine down the road. But still, maintenance is dirt-cheap and I'll be able to get the engine redone without a financial crisis anyway.
