Ford Escort Hatchback 1.3 Encore 5d (95) (1995/M) - Owner Review

OK. What do you expect? Heavy car for 1.3i. No power streering, so heavy for the wife when parking or low speed.

1.3i does the job ok, but go for 1.6.

Reliability

Perfect in 3 years. Ford service is a must. Feels like a diffrent car afterwards. Only been let down by alternator (cost £70 with call out and new one).
