1993 Ford Escort LX 1.9 from North America
It has paid for itself in Usage!
Needed New clutch at 285,000 Km
Timing Belt broke at around 320,000 Km.
Needed new radiator at 350,000 Km.
New rear shocks at around 370,000 Km.
Have changed the battery only once.
Gone through 2 starters.
Brakes have had to be replaced far too often. (Worst problem with this vehicle)
Problem with locks seizing in spring 2002.
At 431,000 Km and still on original engine.
Still does not burn any oil. Uses about 1 Liter of Oil for about 5000 Km.
Oil Changed Every 5000 Kilometers.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
