1986 Ford Orion Review
wasnt the 1.6i Ghia!
D700 Uuf Orion 1.6gl — ORION 1.6i GL Reg.D700 UUF My favourate car. Reliable, reasonable performance, well built, economical. Insurance was steep for an 18 yr old at the time. There was a transmission issue as the car juddered in 1st gear. Two accidents ( 1 in the front and 1 in the back) meant that it really didnt drive or feel how it used to- So I traded it in for the 1992 Ford Escort.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
