1980 Ford Fiesta LX 1.6 from North America
Good drive train and carburetor and that's about all
Replaced everything on this car except for the fuel pump, engine, and alternator. Heater core froze in the middle of a snow storm. It had a vacuum motor on the air cleaner that would go kaput every 40k. This would cause the carburetor to freeze. Bullet proof drive train.
Original clutch when sold at 168k. Bullet proof carburetor except for freeze issues in winter time. Very easy car to work on. Got me through college.
Reliable, most of the time. Good electronics.
Easy to repair.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
