1995 Ford Escort GT 1.8 from North America
Water pump, timing belt, tye rods, brakes and the list goes on. All this BEFORE 160,000.
The CD player was garbage as well.
Good looking car, but wouldn't buy another one.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I'm surprised that you had to replace all of that that soon, but I'm not surprised. These cars need regular maintenance, and neglecting it causes them to destruct. It's the same with the GT I drive. The outside was taken care of, so it's in good shape, but the mechanical work was only done when something broke, so it's all going now. I've replaced half of the front end. But I love the car, and the way it can accelerate, handle, and drive, and still return 400-700 km (250-438 miles.) on a tank.
