In 75,000 miles the only problem was flaking paint.
Because of the shoddy reputation Pintos had, I wanted to comment on mine. I was very happy with it and it never let us down.
The motor with a 4-speed had excellent "grunt" from down low and ran well on the highway. Passing power was fine.
The transmission never gave us any trouble and always shifted smoothly.
We sold it and bought a Dodge Omni when they came out, but that is another report completely!
The refusal to buy another Ford stems not from this car, but a later '93 Taurus I reported on here in another section.
A great buy as a new car for the youngsters we were in 1974.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
