Can't find my old reply amongst these 43 pages so I'll just update my worst car here....
FIAT BRAVO. What a heap of &*@%. Got it for £760, 2 weeks later the gearbox blew itself away costing me £340 to get fixed, month later after that the
pump packed up and had the rocker box sqealing like a pig. Mechhie looked at it and said the engine would never run again. Offered me £100 for it, took it, signed it over to him and gave him the keys.
Then he took off the rocker box cover poured tons of
all over the parts put the cover back and drove it away
While I hated that motor for being such a pain in the grass I felt gutted that the engine still pulled the damn thing away..
I will NEVER touch another fiat again.
EDIT forgot to mention the new brake pads, and several other bits that were paid for to get the heap working. Spent about £1200 on that heap in total just to get £100 for it
