The next best thing to sliced bread
Paint quality under the doors poor.
Battery needed replacing.
Faulty CV boot on drive shaft.
Normal wear and tear on types and brake pads and wiper blades.
Quite a quick little car, had the ability to rev up to 9000RPM in every gear reaching a top speed of 125MPH. Very good for traffic light starts.
This car with a lowered stiffened suspension, which give good handling at high speed. Not so good on rough terrain.
This particular car did not have the optional electric pack which including things like electric windows, central locking, anti-lock brakes, air conditioning.
But besides all that, this car was seriously fun to drive and very comfortable.
This car was the first car I had with power steering, which made slow speed manoeuvring quite easy.
Standard Ford audio equipment disappointing and quickly upgraded and very easy to do with right technical knowledge. Always good to have a Haynes Manual.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
