A great little sporty car before the rust got it
When I bought the car, all 4 fenders had virtually rusted off. The rust eventually ate through a plate on the intake manifold and the coolant disappeared very quickly.
The starter would vibrate itself loose about once a month and fall out (literally), and was just about impossible to put back in until I drilled a couple holes in the floorboards to reach the bolts.
The gas gauge never worked.
This was a most drivable car. The 1600cc motor was the performance engine, and in the glove compartment were instructions to increase the tire pressure for prolonged cruising over 100 mph.
It was light and nimble, and a lot of fun.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
