1991 Ford Escort Hatchback GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

I am the second owner of this car, my
aunt bought it brand new and took
excellent care of it, and when i turned
16 the car became mine. I had no
problems at first but since i've gotten
it we've had to replace the alternator
3 times...going on 4 soon. the battery
has been replaced many times due to the
alternator draining it. Other than the
alternator i've had no big problems
with it.


Best Features

sunroof, exterior design


Worst Features

Find out what is wrong with the alternator!!! and get rid of that ugly light interior color, it's gross.

Review

I have not had a problem yet with the
car. I only did the typical maintenance
that you do with a used car. I drove
from Virginia to Connecticut for the
first time by myself and I had no fear
about driving that distance alone. I
have never driven that far before. I
made it to and from. I have more
confidence in that car than any car
that I had in the past (and there were
many). I will keep this car for a very
long time.


Best Features

Everything


Worst Features

I wish that it drives better over 70mph. It feels that the fuel skips.

Review

I'm the OEM buyer of this car and it's
been great. The mileage, the performance
and just the sheer fun of the vehicle.
I can stash any of my bicycles into the
back (including my recumbent) and the
only time it's ever been towed is when
the missus parked it badly. The biggest
improvement I made was to replace the
sport Eagle GT+4 tires with touring
tires and replacing the OEM struts with
gas charged struts.


Best Features

Size, performance, fun, mileage, carrying capacity (I've hauled 14" Xmas trees)


Worst Features

The original struts were too hard and the sport tires only exaggerated this problem. Don't get this car for a teenager because it will go much faster than a teenager should go.

Review

I have had my escort for almost 2 years
now and it is the best purchase I ever
made. It only cost me $1400 to buy and
I have only had to replace 1 tire for
$35. So far it has averaged out to
less than $70 a month for the time I've
had it. I don't have any doubt it will
last me for well over another year. I
plan on driving it until it breaks
down, I may drive it for another 5
years. If anyone is planning on buying
one I strongly recomned it.


Best Features

The reliability is the major feature of the car. Also carries a lot of stuff because it is a hatchback. I have been able to move a couch before.


Worst Features

Not very powerful.
