1993 Ford Telstar AX 2.6 lt V6 from Australia and New Zealand
A nice car let down by parts prices!
Ignition fault at 164,000. Had to replace the distributor, a new one cost me $1,157.00, for a couple of bucks worth of cast alloy, some pressed sheet metal parts, a coil and some bits of plastic!
Drive train noise undiagnosed as yet.
For all of its good looks, handling and comfort, the Telstar is seriously let down by the price of parts.
The rear hatch tail light facia panel for instance, which is just just a piece plastic with the reverse lights and number plate lights in it, believe it or not it costs $1,200.00 to replace!
If you were to build a car from parts it would work to be worth over $100,000.00. How do you justify the cost of the parts?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
