Head gasket blew at 70,000 miles. My previous Nova blew at 60,000.
The front brake disks and pads were worn when I bought the car. The pads were replaced after another 30,000 miles.
The clutch was very sticky as the car had been stationary for a year. I finally had it replaced when it started slipping. I wish I'd had it done ages ago as it was £200 including fitting.
The hand brake cable has been replaced.
Three out of four wheel bearings have failed this year.
It has just had a new track rod end fitted.
Fuel lines seem to be a problem with this and my previous Nova.
The driver's door is rusting to oblivion, but the wheel arches aren't too bad.
Lastly, the usual consumables, e.g. exhausts, tyres and lights, especially those for the minor controls on the dash board.
This car is great fun to drive, with a great driving position, visibility and neutral handling.
The engine and bodywork are starting to show their age although the interior looks like new.
There is plenty of power and torque from the engine, but the brakes are not great.
