1989 Ford Escort Pony 1.9 from North America
Best car I owned
Only issues I had were the trans shifter busted loose from the trans. Welded back on, and was good to go for another 80k miles.
Had to replace the clutch early, but that's because I was smoking the tires at school, because I was told the little thing couldn't smoke them. I won that bet BTW.
This was my first car. I was the third owner. Beat the hell out of it. Like I said, I would smoke the tires. Drag raced an Olds Delta 88 and won. Fast, sharp car with the power to pull a small fishing boat and pop up camper with ease.
Never leaked or burnt oil. Took it off road several times, and it ran like a champ and kept up with the trucks.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
