1994 Ford Fiesta LX (Equipe) 1.3 from UK and Ireland
Lots. Friday afternoon job. Owned from new it has had 1 new cat, 2 new exhausts after one year, 3 new power steering pumps, 4 new brake discs, 5 new idle speed control motors.
Nice car to drive. Optional power steering is bliss. Dealers have been good on the whole with most work done under warranty. Best comment so far was "Your brake pads are fine but your discs have worn out", apparently Ford used too hard a brake pad compound on some cars.
Car was running badly on and off for 18 months, cutting out and over-revving. After 3 attempts (no fault found) eventually diagnosed the idle speed motor. so if they can't find this annoying fault on your car try this.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
