This little Laser is STONE AXE reliable, economical to run, and a 1st class highway runner

.I use it primarily around Ballarat on a daily basis, with occasional weekend getaways. It is serviced every 6 months and since I bought it, the clutch is the only component that has had to be replaced. Show details

Ford Laser 2001 2.0L SR2

I finally found the rare 2001 Ford SR2 limited model in amazing condition with its 2.0 twin cam motor and fantastic handling.
Extremely pleased with the Ford/Mazda combination, and having a piece of Ford Australian history. Show details

Love my laser!

I have a 2001 ford laser kq manual done very little km. I love my laser, it is so cheap to drive, I have it serviced every six months, recently changed plugs, has needed new tyres and brakes but not much else, so economical on fuel and smooth to drive even changing gears. Hard to beat finding a small car like this one! Show details

Not running

I have a 2001 Ford Laser Lxi. When the engine is cold it starts and runs great but when it starts to heat up it starts to shake and want to turn off. Does anyone know how to fix this, it could be running a rich fuel mixture not sure.

An awesome first car

I will the 2002 kq 1.6 variant and I love it a lot especially because its a manual. The engine is smooth for an older car and the manual transmission is a dream to drive, it corners quite well for a small car and is has decent acceleration. It's not a powerful car by any means but it's a nice small that will get you somewhere.

Love my Laser

Bought my Laser 1.8 GLXi in September 2000. Excellent vehicle. Can’t fault it. Still driving it at the age of 83. It sure is going to out last me. Wish they didn’t discontinue the Marc. G,2018. It’s very comfortable to drive,ac is very good instruments and controls easily accessible really good car.

My KN lazer just stopped one day. It sounds like it is going to turn over but just doesnt. It is not the battery. The mechanic is stumped. Any ideas?
