In General, What items need attention on this Reatta? The brakes need work. I know generally speaking, Reattas have brake problems. I have looked it up before. Never experienced a problem in nice weather, but have had brakes lock up on me in winter. The headlight motor doesn’t always work, so I have the headlights permanently propped up. There is some leaking from the windows… molding needs to be fixed. Dashboard comes on sometimes, but sometimes, no. Leather on armrest needs to be replaced.


My Reatta Drives: (Excellent/Good/Fair/Poor): I have had it in storage. It is currently in my garage. It drives nicely, but I just don’t have space for it at my new house. Too many teenagers/young adults with cars.


Other comments about this Reatta: I love driving this car. Wish I had space to keep it. It is a head turner. Everything is original. My father was very particular about it and it has been garage kept all of these years. I haven’t maintained it the way he has, but it’s still a very sharp car. I always got offers, but wasn’t willing to sell. Now I just don’t have the space. But it’s a beauty… especially if you’re a Reatta lover!
