1988 Ford Fiesta Popular 1.1 from UK and Ireland
Crap, buy a Nova
Exhaust broke in half, rust everywhere, oil leaks, speedometer was reading 15 mph less than it was going, needed new clutch, whining gearbox needed changing and the headlights flicker.
Rust bucket, rubbish, rubbish, rubbish.
Bounces down the road, very uncomfortable, spent more than the car's worth on repairs.
Takes about 27 seconds to get to 60 mph, gearbox still whines even though it's only 4000 miles old.
Do not buy one, get a Nova instead.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Yes, Nova's are good and tend to be rust proof, but they cost the earth to insure for a young driver as they tend to push em hard, ie. more accidents.

Rust proof Nova? The majority of Novas I have looked at are full of rust in all the same places, even a J-registered model.
