1998 Ford Escort Finesse 16v 1.6 zetec petrol from UK and Ireland
A car not to be missed! Buy one, I recommend them
CV gaiter split.
Revs would go up and down sometimes, which was fixed by spraying carb cleaner into where the idle control valve was.
Rear chassis rail had some corrosion.
Rear sill and wheel arch had some corrosion.
This was my 3rd Escort, but my first MK6.
It was a great car with a reconditioned engine, and it had blue metallic paint.
Engine was smooth and reliable (better than the Nissan I had before).
Drove lovely, and always started no matter what the temperature!
Buy a good Escort and you will be chuffed.
This one came with aircon, alloys, CD player, sunroof etc as standard.
I upgraded the dials to white with a rev counter & blue illumination, and changed the front grille to chrome.
Looked the part, and is now serving well for the new keepers in Haverhill.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
