1991 Ford Fiesta Bonus 999cc from UK and Ireland
A cheap noisy car that never died
The clutch was slipping when I got the car, but was quite cheap to repair.
Rear brake cylinder needed replacing due to a leak.
Throttle cable snapped off the carb, but managed to use the manual choke to get me home. Cost £2.00 to repair.
This car was slow the tiny engine had a lot of trouble pulling the car, but saying that it did manage to do 100mph one evening back from Brighton.
The cabin was very basic. Ford removed so much from inside, things like the glove-box door, cigar lighter, trip clock and the dash clock. It was still comfortable though.
The car handled well. Rolled on corners, but nothing bad.
This car took a lot of abuse and survived. Solid as a rock.
I also managed to sell it at a profit to a used car salesman.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
