Sad to see you had a bad time but i know what you're saying. My GT was a money pit and had to make the tough decision of letting her go. Great car to look at and drive but couldn't live with the constant breakdowns and raping of my wallet.

Good luck with your new car

Maybe you just had a bad example, past owners abused it a bit. Both my 147's ( 1.9 JTDM's) have been 100% reliable for me
