1973 Volkswagen 412 Review
Vw 412 Variant — Like - simple drivetrain, no boilovers, nice interior, light and precise handling, very easy maintenance access, solid construction, disc brakes, McPherson struts, fully independant suspension, decent heater, air conditioning, very unique car, a joy to drive on long trips with a full load in front trunk and rear cargo area (station wagon). Dislike - Early two-stage paint, faded very rapidly, surface rust trap points, underpowered, indifferent fuel economy for a 4-cylinder (~22 MPG US), hard to find tire size nowadays.
Pros: Type 4 engine, disc brakes, fully independant suspension, MEGA cargo space
Cons: Fuel economy, paint
