1974 Ford Pinto Runabout 4 cylinder from North America
No major problems. I did have a flat on the right back tire during the first year from picking up a nail on my way to work one morning, and got stranded til my boyfriend came to change my flat tire.
The 3rd year I had my Pinto, I got another flat on the right back tire and had to run on that flat tire to get to a phone to call for help to change my flat. I am one of those women that does not change a flat tire, and will run on a flat if I have to. My tires were getting worn by then, and after that flat that I ran on, I got a new set of tires.
Great little car for going to work, and around town for shopping and several trips on the road. My Pinto gave me good service and was a great economy car to drive. It was easy drive and park. Really enjoyed it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Really, 10 years and 80,000 miles and all you had was two flat tires?
And people claim Pintos were lousy cars...

I saw you read my review of my of 1974 Pinto runabout I wrote on Dec 24,2015. My little Pinto was a good car and gave me good service. I only had to do routine service, and replaced a few batteries and a set of tires. I did get two flat tires on the right back tire when I was driving by myself, which was the only times my Pinto left me stranded on the road and in town, and I was able to get help to change my flat tires. It was a great little car for a young single girl then.
