It wasn't that the car had problems per se, it was just that it was so obvious that they had taken cost cutting a touch too far. The manual choke was a good example, you had to remember to engage it before starting the car and gradually turn it off. The tires were held on with only 3 lug nuts. The exhaust manifold came out through the wheel well, which eventually destroyed my car - it developed a leak and started the rustproofing material on fire.

Thanks! I was probably too young to grasp those annoyances, and the car was destroyed in an accident, not by old age.
