1996 Ford Fiesta Encore 1.3 from UK and Ireland
Good work horse..
The bonnet catch broke and the bonnet flew up as I was driving along the A38 at 70 miles an hour!!
4 new tyres, new spark plugs and leads.
New brake pads and pipes.
Has a stalling problem at the moment cannot figure out why.
Very seriously rusted underneath, heard that is a problem on fiestas.
Scratches and dents in places all there when car bought.
Nothing really major, I guess...
My car has no power steering and drives like a tank.
The boot is too small, not much room for a buggy and shopping.
She is seriously rusty and I have been told she will not pass another MOT, due to the amount of welding she will need.
She does 0-60 in about an hour :o)
Other than that, I love my little car, she is a comfortable ride and I have had a lot of mileage out of her.
And to be fair, she is a good work horse and has done well these last couple of years that I have had her.
I will miss her when she has to go to the Ford heaven in the sky...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
