1990 Ford Telstar TX5 1.8 from Australia and New Zealand
Lousy, but lovable
Day after I bought it (from a mechanic), the heater died and soaked my front seat area in antifreeze; an absolute nightmare to fix.
Shuddered if you went over 100km/hr.
After the initial nightmares with this car, it was quite enjoyable to have after I amped the sound system and all.
Seats were comfortable; almost like bucket seats.
Steered very well; not too heavy and not too light for power steering.
Had very good pickup, and having overdrive made it really roar when you needed it.
Big spacious boot; I even put the seats down in the back and slept in it once; it was rather comfy.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
