My Ford Escort Pony is a reliable
car. It has never let me down when I
needed it. Problems include
malfunctioning automatic seatbelts,
failing gas and unreliable temperature
gauges. Also, check engine, and check
coolant lights come on normally.
Despite these problems the car
operates fine, and is a good fun car.
The 5-speed transmission is great, but
the clutch is weak.
1.9L Pony engine
small and manuverable
folding rear seat
good gas mileage
High performance clutch (more grip).
Better exterior paint and trim.
