1990 Volkswagen Fox Standard from North America
5 years of no car payment!
The hood flew off.
Latch that held the hood came loose due to rust, and it smashed against the windshield, breaking both hood arms under the hood. Pulled a couple from a junked 92 Jetta, but the body panels have to be pulled off to replace it. I drilled a hole through the hood and tied it down.
Over the five years that I have had it, replaced the radiator, brakes, tires, water pump, hoses, axles, bearings, rotors, and the mufflers twice.
Had the right front and rear light wired off of the left lights due to a burned fuse port.
Lousy hub cap design, they flew off.
Gas mileage ranges from 25-30.
Nobody bothered the car wherever I parked it.
Seats were not too comfortable.
Repair costs were low.
It was very basic; manual steering, windows, seats. Even though window cranks and seat cranks broke, you could work around them.
Didn't rust too quick, considering Cleveland salt.
Hate to see it go, I know I can't find another car like it for $750.00.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
