I don't think I'd be as brave in my Cruze. That's a long way. I loooove Fuegos but given pretty much no Medallions at all were made as Renaults even before it totally flopped as an Eagle I'm very unlikely to ever see either.
@silentbutnotreallydeadly This is trying to reassure the typical Jeep Grand Wagoneer buyer that it's OK for them to check out an Eagle when they bring it in for servicing, because the typical Grand Wagoneer owner owned at least 2 other cars, and those 2 other cars were invariably West German
From what i read it seems to work quite well for normal driving and the mileage is quite good (but not as much as Toyota-style hybrids) but it's a bit sluggish if you try to push it but it's not meant to be sporty anyway so i guess it's not bad if it's also reliable.
@streetsofperth Green is definitely one of the best colors for these cars. It was quite a popular hatchback as Renault sold around 2 million of them, but due to poor rust protection many of them no longer exist. The 2 different wheelbases is a very unique feature indeed! A very similar suspension setup with the two different wheelbases and torsion bars, along with the front mid engined layout, was also used on the iconic Lecar/R5.
@pip-bip The Premier was one of the best cars that nobody bought. The only one I can really remember seeing was owned by a friend's father, who was in the Canadian Forces Air Command and stationed in the US for some reason. They had that, and a first gen Mazda MPV, which we went to see Jurassic Park in on opening day.
