1989 Ford Escort XR3i 1.6i petrol from UK and Ireland
An easy to drive, high performance car
Camshaft & tappets @ 102,000 miles.
Gearbox mountings @ 98,000 miles.
Headgasket @ 100,000 miles.
For two years I have loved every minute of driving my Escort. Everything is solid on the car, the interior, bodywork and most impotantly the engine.
The modifications you can do to the Escort are endless e.g. different suspension, bodykits and you can tweak the engine up a little if you please.
Once you get the Escort bug there's no turning back.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
