1986 Ford Meteor GC 1.6L from Australia and New Zealand
A car that needs time and patience from the owner
Alternator died - fixed.
Passenger seat belt clip doesn't always work, drivers side is getting worse - getting fixed.
Handle on glove box sits lop-sided - ignoring.
Goes through c. v boots like no ones business - gets fixed each time.
Top clear layer is peeling off body, crow feet everywhere.
Boot lock is very stiff - ignoring.
Excellent no matter what weather.
Brakes sometimes seem squishy and other times are right there - getting fixed.
Pressure switch seal cracked which it then started taking gear box oil through the exhaust, got that fixed though.
Over heats very easily - getting fixed.
Fairly good car, mine just wasn't looked after well before I bought it.
Seats are really comfortable.
Can't say that I would recommend buying one to anyone, my family and I have spent a lot of money and time on it to keep it going.
I've had it up to 130kph, she just wants to keep going, but she gets the death wobbles, which made me slow down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
