How bad was Dacia build quality in the 1980's?

Illustration for article titled How bad was Dacia build quality in the 1980s?

Dacia invited Malcom Bricklin and Tony Ciminera - the people responsible for bringing the Yugo to the U.S. - to tour their factory, hopeful they would want to sell the car in the states. Before even finishing the tour both of them walked out of the factory in disgust.


It wasn’t just the sloppiness of the construction that bothered them, Ciminera says the factory was so dirty, so disgusting, that it made him feel sick. The factory was so bad he didn’t feel the cars were fixable or the workforce capable of making a car (as good as a Yugo... which is saying something).
