89 Escort Bonus Info Required


Recommended Posts

HI!, ive recently bought a gold 1.3l mk4 89 Escort Bonus.

ive searched the internet for info on the car, but cant find it anywhere.

i was wondering if anyone knows any of the following about this car.

what i would like to know:

-dose it have ABS? - comes as an optional extra (standard on rs turbo)

-whats the difference between a standard model and the bonus?

-its BHP? - 63

-is gold a standard colour? - yup, but not common

-common faults and what to look out for - rusty battery tray, rear wheel bearings going, wipers not doing their job

-anything else about the car would be awesome :-)

thanks in advance, chris

this sort of going on the mk3's as they where near enough the same, the only differance is that the mk4 had the big plastic bumper and was less squarey, but same lay out,

check the battery tray, prone to rusting,

as far as i was aware there was no abs fitted back then,

differance to standied and bonus would be like dash lay out, and possible head rests, etc etc

bhp i cant remember as it was so long ago, but woundnt have thought it would have been that much,

common faults, rear wheel bearings going, rust on the rear wheel arches, and sills, wipers that didnt work, and i fink but dont quote me on it, rear boot would sometimes rust through,

hey, and thx for the reply mate, ive been looking high and low for info, and the only things i have came across is it has a amazing 63BHP (wow :-))and it dosen't have ABS unless you put it in yourself, abs was first put in cars in 1971? and i think that was a crysler, have to check my facts on that one.
