1994 Ford Escort 1.9 from North America
A great bargain for a car!
The only thing that I have had gone wrong with the car is the heat shield for the catalytic converter has come lose, and rattles.
I also get water in the trunk area during rain. The car was rear ended before I bought it. I wonder if that has anything to do with it.
Otherwise than that, it's a very reliable vehicle.
The seats aren't very comfortable. I made a road trip of 1600 miles, and I was constantly shifting around to find a better position.
It's quick off the line, and will give some bigger engines a run for their money. But to try and pass, it takes a while.
The fuel mileage is great for this car. I average around 30 mpg.
The paint is staring to peel off in areas around the rear wheels, and the trunk. I have noticed this on similar vehicles.
I will probably keep driving my "red rocket" till it dies.
It goes through the snow pretty well, and handles well also.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
