1993 Ford Escort LX 1.9 from North America
Very Faithful, Reliable to the End!
When I first got the car in January of 2003 it had quite a few miles on it. I had to replace the air flow sensor only cost me about $250. Since then, only minor repairs such as brakes and tune ups have been necessary.
One thing that has caused a little problem, which according to the mechanic he has seen before with the make model and year, for some unknown reason the car doesn't start. I had to get the battery replaced. The alternator was checked the battery wasn't bad all cables were in tact and everything seemed in working order. Replaced battery only happened once since, recharged battery works fine every time.
Not long after I got the car I drove it to London Canada. Everyone told me when buying a Ford that it wasn't worth it, but it has been way worth the $600 I paid for the car.
The owner before me was a family member and she drove the car the full 120000 before I bought it from her. It was supposed to only be a starter car for me, but it has lasted me a lot of miles and it has been more than worth it. She also didn't have to fix anything on the car as far as I know nearly all factory parts are still in the car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
