1986 Volkswagen Golf LX 1.7 turbo diesel from Bosnia and Herzegovina
The workhouse of the automobile world
The entire right tire and axle came off on a turn outside Kozarac, in Bosnia-Herzegovina. Shrapnel damage from the war required the rear seat to be changed. Tire balance is a constant struggle with this automobile.
The winding, narrow, and steep mountain roads of Bosnia-Herzegovina require a sturdy, reliable car with great handling. Safety is less important in Bosnia-Herzegovina, you need a car that can stay on the road because spinning off the highway, even if you drive a tank, is usually fatal.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
