1986 Ford LaserReview
Good Commuter — The old Ford Laser, they were like the Hyundai Excel of their day, cheap to run and repair, not designed to last forever but did what they were built to do. This was the second car i owned and had much fun in it, i wished it was a 5 speed manual instead of an auto though. Bit gutless in the 1.6L carby Auto
Pros: Economical and cheap to repair
Cons: Drives like a shopping trolley
