GV Plus

  • Manual transmission
  • 4,500 miles


This was my friend's car. He bought it used in January of 1992 for $1,000. The transmission started slipping about 4 days before it failed. He bought it to the local mechanic. Had it replaced. He then traded in the car for a 1992 Honda Civic. This car sucked! it was horrible!

GV +

  • Manual transmission
  • 70,000 miles

Ok, so my 1991 Yugo GV +, which I bought NEW, has had a broken transmission 20 + times in the 10 years I had it! The first time it happened, I had owned the car for a month. I went to the dealership, only to find that Yugo left the United States! So, I had to go to a mechanic and fix it for $2,000!!! That was almost the price of the car! I don't know how I kept up with this! At one point, the transmission cost $7,000!!!!! So, once I was completely fed up with it and had saved enough money to buy my dream car (which was very hard with the transmission), I gave it to my friend, who was looking for rare cars as a Christmas gift, and drove away in my brand new Lexus! I will never get a Yugo if it's the last car in the world!!! And, along with the transmission, the list of problems for my Yugo keeps going on and on!!!!
