1993 Ford Escort L 1.8 diesel from UK and Ireland
Economical, cheap repairs, but a bit slow
Track rod ends.
Whole new brake set.
Driver's side ball bearing & hub knuckle.
Rear engine mounting.
Extremely economical. Engine will go on for miles and miles, but the other running parts are needing to be replaced at the 130K miles mark! Worth it though, since I save loads on fuel expenses and the engine is reliable.
When I can afford it, though, I will get rid of it in favour of something with some power! Aaarrrggghhh! So slow!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
