1991 Ford Escort GT 2dr Hatchback

Review

This is the only car that sold itself to me! The salesman didn't have to do anything. After the air conditioner was fixed in only 1 year, the next big problem was the air flow meter did not read right, causing the the engine go lean and sputter once the engine warmed up-fixed under the warranty just before it expired. At about '99 the tiny coolant lines that run to the air intake (these set idle speed fast when coolant is cold)busted and my coolant boiled out (see improvement sugg.) It may wear on you cruising the interstate by the hour, the suspension is a bit stiff. But for anything shorter it rides just fine and is good at handling curves.

Best Features

It is just plain fun to drive. I could put bikes and chairs in back that probably would not fit in the later ZX2.

Worst Features

The oil filter should not be located directly over the exhaust pipe. The car always smokes after the oil filter is changed. Too many things are accessible only from underneath the car. Tire size 185/60R15 was hard to find.
