1995 Ford Telstar from Australia and New Zealand
Nothing of significance has gone wrong with this car.
Windscreen washers tend to block up, which is a nuisance. I've installed an inline filter to stop this.
I maintain this car generally in line with the owner's manual, but do most of the regular work myself.
This means change oil & filter, check and top up other fluids, spark plugs, coolant change, light bulbs, etc.
I get the mechanic to do major stuff like cam belts and brakes.
I've kept an eye on everything, and replaced parts before they cause problems. For example, I have changed rubber hoses and the accessory belt before they failed.
I install a new cam belt kit, instead of just the belt - that means tensioner and idler, seals, etc.
I am about to do the same with the water pump.
Flush brake fluid and change coolant periodically.
The car has 300,000 km on it, and seriously I've had no problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
