I agree - in 1981 I bought a first-year Ford Escort GLX and, although I liked most things about it, the engine had a serious failures twice that required major repair work. Ford covered the 1st, but not the 2nd.
It is only now - about 30 years later - that I am looking at the possibility of buying a Ford once again and part of that process is reading this forum.
