    Not even French(!)

    But it hauls the trailer/veteran car outfit with consumate ease ... biturbo 400Nm 132kw 7speed DSG, constant 4WD: it's a BLAST!

    Wonder why it is called "Familia"? Not much like "Familiale" vehicles Citroen produced. Or maybe it is "Familiar" with the "r" dropped by mistake instead
    Do these people give totally random names for their products!?

    No idea...it sure as hell isn't a family car either.

    Rx7, mx5, rx2, 3, 6...they do like numbers though.


    I found that parts are a lot easier to find for the ford TX3 turbos...same parts but mostly just labelled as the ford version of the car...annoying seeing as the engine and drivetrain are Mazda products ???

    Talking about numbers. Where did Renault get their model numbers from? 16,10,12,9,21,25,19... makes no sense to me

    I've been lead to believe the numbers came about from the amount of people out of
    100 who liked the car (but then I'm easily lead).

    And why they gave up the nuber system on the fuego. Fandango is actually only the scond person in history to kill a fuego.

    You can't kill a car that hasn't got a nuber system, anyway!
