1991 Ford Escort Pony 2dr Hatchback


Review

My Ford Escort Pony is a reliable car. It has never let me down when I needed it. Problems include malfunctioning automatic seatbelts, failing gas and unreliable temperature gauges. Also, check engine, and check coolant lights come on normally. Despite these problems the car operates fine, and is a good fun car. The 5-speed transmission is great, but the clutch is weak.


Best Features

1.9L Pony engine small and manuverable folding rear seat good gas mileage


Worst Features

High performance clutch (more grip). Better exterior paint and trim.

1991 Ford Escort Pony 2dr Hatchback


Review

I drove this car on the German Autobon for several years. 40,000 miles with my foot so hard to the floorboards, I would get leg cramps (you laugh.) Top end...maybe 140 going downhill. Those big ole' Granddaddy 5 series Mercedes and 7 series Bimmers would pass me so fast they would suck me out into their lane, but the Escort was a hoot nonetheless. 7 hours to Italy....4 1/2 hours to Amsterdam....Ahhhh the good life!


Best Features

Cheap to own and operate. Chicks dig it!!!!! Email me if you have similar experiences and would like to start a club!!!


Worst Features

Absolutely nothing!!!! Why mess with perfection!!!

Review

This is a very reliable car,definitly an improvement over the first gen escort. It has been refined and restyled to be a moderatly beautiful car as well. it has exceptional fuel efficiency, and very low maintenence costs. Proper preventitive maintenance is a must. The seats are comfortable for short trips only(50 miles or less). The 1.9L provides ample power for the car. Owners of the escort should go to www.escortracing.com and check out our message board at the Escort Racing Development Team.


Best Features

Large faithful folloing of owners. it is a world class car that is respected in every counrty but the US. Highly underestimated.


Worst Features

lower, more ergonomic seats. (ford is notorious for bad ergonomics). and, last but not least, to ford: Bring it back!
