1982 Renault 5Review
Memories.... — Slower than cold tar, filled it up once maybe twice a month and drove it every day. This was just a weird little car that really grew on you. This was my first new car. I paid 3500.00 for it. (it won out over the new Ford Escort, which one of my friends bought and borrowed his car from the dealer every now and then to drive until something broke again...)The "LeCar" came out of the dealer and never needed to go back.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: I learned a whole lotta French
Cons: always having to answer the question about where the fourth lug nut is.
