Vive la France. Vive la Aronde!
Body rusted to death in 4 years due to salty German roads.
Clutch gave trouble occasionally, but the dealer got it right in the end. Adjustment was wrong.
A few electrical bugs. I can't remember what they were.
Headlamp surrounds fell off when the screws rusted away.
Door locks broke after seizing up in winter.
I used to see hundreds of these cars every day in Berlin, they were very popular.
They were the only french car that looked like an American car, which was unusual at that time. Most French cars looked absurd, in my opinion.
She was comfortable, practical and very cheap to run.
The tail-fins and bug-eye front gave it a 'fishy' look, but it was very cute. Like a small Plymouth or other '50's American auto.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
