1981 Datsun 1200Review

Death Trap — Worst car ever. Inside smelt like oil. Dripped and leaked oil all over the street. Steering wheel shook when you got to 60 and the braked. Noisy as you could hear the engine from the cabin. DEATH TRAP ON WHEELS

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: POS

Cons: Worst car ever

Performance is good due to light weight. Fuel consumption is awesome. Styling is old, but with a nice set of rims, it would do the trick. Wicked to drive, handles great. Needs to be taken care of,... Read More
