I used to work with a chap who had one. I remember him driving it through the workshop wall one day.

More to do with the constant velocity gearbox than the brakes. He started the car up whilst in gear and he revved it up and is shot forward through the wall.

Our Dacia Logan is coming up to 4 years old now. Apart from tyres, brakes and a couple of wheel bearings it is still going well. The drivers seat is showing signs of wear.
