An attractive reliable car
Fuel pump relay.
Passenger electric window failure.
Blocked fuel injectors.
I bought my Belmont in 1998 from a garage. It was previously been owned by a middle aged couple, so it was completely standard with a full service history.
The SRi model was a fine looking and running car. It was well geared with a very gusty engine, which meant driving on the motorways was a pleasure. It was in A1 condition when I bought it, with low miles on it, it had no rust whatsoever and I always kept it in the garage.
The car was the best condition Belmont that I've ever seen. I was lucky to get it at what I thought was a bargain price for an H reg car in this condition, with this level of spec, which included power steering, electric windows, E/M, FFSR and C/L.
I spent very little money on it. The biggest expense was a brand new set of Goodyear eagle tyres. The items that went wrong with it, were due to lack of use. The car had been sitting previously for long periods, so a sticky window motor and fuel pump relay were replaced. The fuel injectors had to be cleaned due to tar build up from the engine doing little work!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
