new engine

Hi have had nothing but trouble with my 1996 660cc auto Sambar, but still can't help being in love with it. initially owned it for 3 days when it first blew the engine dropping the oil all over the road and catching fire although not much damage done. Engine replaced under warranty by the dealer/importer. Running great untill yesterday when overheated and developed a terrible rattle from the timing belt area. Despite stopping immediatly my local garage has pronounced this engine dead as well. Does anybody have an engine or no where can purchase one from still love my little car.

Help!!!!!! Please!!!!!!!     Surprised  Sad

Oh no! I am sorry to hear this! I can't help but I wanted to commiserate! I just bought myself a 1996 Domingo and I have been told I'm crazy! We can't help but love them though, right?!
