1994 Ford Escort LX 1.6i 16v Zetec from UK and Ireland
Good quality engine, nice looking car
Connection snapped off of alternator.
Battery needed replacing.
Wishbone needed replacing.
CV boot needed replacing.
Wheel bearings wear very quickly.
Lights on dashboard stopped working (fan controllers).
The escort has been the best car I have ever owned. I owned a Fiesta previously and it was very unreliable.
The zetec engine is marvellous. It needs regular servicing for it to be at it's best performance, but I think the same can be said for all cars.
For a big car, it is quite nippy.
It looks sporty and takes well to modifications.
The driver's seat tilts and slides, and is really comfortable.
It gets 100 miles to £10 of petrol, and is really good for cruising along the motorway or dual carriageway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
