1988 Volkswagen Fox GL 1.8 from North America
The best car I have ever owned
In the four years I owned the car, nothing happened that was seriously wrong until the very end.
The starter failed around 120,000 miles. I replaced it and never had a problem again.
The gas line began to leak near the top of the tank at around 130,000 miles, which prevented me from filling the tank.
The floorboards began to rust out at about 140,000 miles.
The last straw came when the fuel pump burned out at 145,000 miles.
This was one of the most sturdy cars I have ever driven.
Very reliable in the snow.
The interior seemed a bit cramped and the seats a little hard, but once I got used to both, I loved driving my car.
I was very sad to have to put my Fox out to pasture.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
