1989 Ford Escort L 1.4 from UK and Ireland
Good economical motoring!!!
The brake pads needed changing.
It needed a new clutch!
Pretty good car, which is value for money to keep on the road. Does quite a few miles to the gallon, looks good considering it's 12 years old, pretty sporty.
There's lots of room for other passengers etc. The only problem really is the excessive engine noise (sounds like a tractor when it's in traffic). Oh and the really deadly boring interior!
The 1.6 and 1.8 model is definitely a better buy, although the 1.4 is economical, especially for younger drivers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
