1993 Ford Escort GT 1.8L DOHC 16v from North America
You want one!
Well this car has been pretty much maintenance free besides typical oil changes and tune ups. I have only had one expensive repair and one cheap repair.
80,570 miles: Oil sending unit went out. ($10 part)
132,042 miles: Head gasket blew. ($1,200 fix)
I like it.
That Mazda engine is pretty powerful, and manages to achieve 35 mpg.
I bought this car brand new, and it has served me well over the last 15 years. Only needing oil sending unit and a head gasket. The head gasket was my son's fault, he uses it whenever he goes to school, and he was racing with a Honda Civic; he won, but he kept driving it hard and the car basically heated up, and he didn't pull over until it got to red. I fixed it though, and it is still running fine.
YOU WANT ONE!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
