1993 Renault Spring 1.4 from Turkey
Very reliable as motor and economic
I bought the car in spring time and at first I could not realize this defect. The overall problem is its ignition situation. When you start the car especially in cold mornings it will not start easily. The problem seems to be with the carburetor itself. The gasoline seems not to reach the ignition parts easily.
When you consider price /fuel efficiency and service need for a given time it's a very economic, reliable car. Although you should not consider to pass 130 km/h due to engine noise and vibration inside, when you go between 90 and 110 km/h its O.K. It proved itself a very reliable machine as I tested in the nature on bad earthen roads even on mud and on rocks because we had to use it for geological field surveys. With 45 lt it makes a well 700 km.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
