1998 Ford LaserReview
Hanging In There — As the car reaches its 14th year and passed its 300,000th km, it now has obvious signs of wear and tear but I still see it as reliable. The good news is that parts are still readily available and from my experience delivered and repaired in 2 days. This car has been useful for many purposes, including the times I've used the tow-bar for heavy hauling, incl 1tonne of gravel. Parts replaced: Gear Box, front brakes, boot, rear window, clutch, both front CV joints, full rear suspension and partial front suspension. Appearance: Still prefer this car's shape to the newer models of small sedans that tend to be much taller and narrower. Fun factor: Sadly can't compete with the 6 cylinders at the lights anymore.
Pros: Extremely versatile.
Cons: Its showing age.

Not bad for a real cheapie, but i drove it too hard, and it started falling apart. If something like this is what you are looking for try a fuel injected model, and heads up: the breaks are dreadful..... Read More
