1988 Ford Laser Ghia 1.6 Efi from Australia and New Zealand
A lot of car for $1400
Needed new Air Filter $14.98.
Needed new Oil Filter $14.49.
Needed new Rocker Cover Gasket $13.24.
Needed New Spark Plugs $28.30.
Battery wasn't in a healthy state after buying car, went flat very easily and wouldn't start car making it unreliable. Have bought a new battery now costing $99.95 with 2 year warranty.
For Warranty of Fitness needed new Rear Disk Brakes $50.00, old ones were completely worn out!!
And Rear Number Plate Light needed replacing. Got a 2nd hand one off an old Mazda in junk yard. $15.00.
This is the very exact car that I wanted for my first car. I've had it for about 6 months now and it has been trouble free apart from the repairs and parts that were needed because of how bad it had been treated by previous owners.
Because it's a *Gear* model it has the things I can't live without in a car. Electric Windows, Electric Mirrors, Central Locking, Power Steering, Alloy Wheels, Velour Seats!!!
Plus I was lucky the previous owner left the Cd Player he had installed for me!
In New Zealand Ford Lasers rate as one of the most reliable cars among the likes of Corollas so I expect this car to last a long time considering it's reasonably low mileage.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
