1987 Yugo GV GV 1.1 liter from North America
Lots of FUN, amazing for what it is
Nothing, I wrecked it 1 week after getting my license and never fixed it. Still own 2 of them; will eventually make one work.
Had a great time in the little time I drove the car. My dad had bought it for me when I was about 13 as my first car. We already owned one, but this one was in better condition.
Me and my friends would drive the both of them around my 10 acres of property. I did a lot of stupid stuff in this car, like climbing sand hills and jumps. Even though it was only 1.1 liter, it still got around really well. I made this car go places some all wheel drive vehicles have a hard time with. I got my Yugo up to 105-110 MPH (probably about red line 4th gear) on a very slight downhill and would get up to 95 on flat; I don't think the car was capable of much faster with only the 4 gears. I had the pedal to the floor at all times in this car, and still got 25 MPG. I raced a few different junkers like a 1980s Toyota Tercel; the Yugo was by far faster than the Toyota. Same story when racing Metros and a Subaru Justy.
Overall the car was more fun than anyone gives it credit for. I am very disappointed in myself for having treated it so bad through the ages of 13 to 16. I hope to restore one of the two I have to good condition.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
