My Cute Little French Car — I loved these little cars. This was one of three I owned - this being the last one. This was the 1.4 version and the best bits were sweeping around country lanes and roundabouts almost of two wheels - great fun. When you are on your own these cars are great - once you have children - space becomes a bit tight. Again bought the wrong colour WHITE - but at the time there were so few about at the right price.

Pros

Economy

Cons

Performance

45

City Use — It has a bad performance with a 1.1L engine which is very economic for gas consumption. Braking system is good comparing it to the performance. It doesn't have a lot of mechanical problems. Cheap spare parts. the interior makes a lot of noise (plastic noise). You have to fill it with gas once a year (lool)

the echanger blow easy but easy to fixe

35

N/a — very light on weight so very easy car to drive on rally price was good. iuse to love the accelaration and at 3000 rpm the turbo pickup was a nice boost one problem in race can over heat easy, and the echanger can blow, i us to replace him by a lancia Inegral who is much stronger. price in the 80 was 75 000 Francs (about 12 000 $)

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

Better than I thought

Cons

Brown paint job

Surprisingly Fun — A TS means this was quite a fun car to drive, if you could get along with the soft suspension. As with many small French cars, it seemed to barely hold together, but somehow it did. OK, I had to replace the clutch and the fron brakes, and a few other things during the 5 years I owned it, but it was an easy car to work with so it was no big deal. Rust wasn't like older Renaults, but I had some repairs done.
