The best luxury car of the 1970s
Ignition failed at 10,000 miles.
Brake pads needed replacing at 18,000 miles.
Driver's side window motor failed at 23,000 miles.
Interior trim began to crumble after 30,000 miles.
The SD1 3500 is a very smooth and swift luxury car which had a very useful hatchback.
It is very impressive looking for a car that was designed back in the mid 1970s.
At a time when British Leyland was producing a raft of maligned motors, the SD1 3500 was a world class creation.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
