1998 Ford Escort GTi 1.8 from UK and Ireland
A high performance bargain
It has needed 3 new clutches due to clutch judder.
It has had a new n/s lower arm.
It needed a new gearbox because the diff bearing had gone so they changed it all under warranty.
It has had a fault with the power steering pump leaking.
Generally it has been a very good car.
I like cruising in the car because it's the body kit that makes the car.
I will possibly be modifying the car later on in the year when the warranty runs out, the first thing will be a good Magnex exhaust system.
I will be keeping the car for quite some time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
