13 Years and only two repairs

ReviewI've had my Escort GT for 13 years! I bought it brand new in 1990, have put 160,000 miles on it, and in all that time, I've had only two repairs. One $98 ignition switch and one oil leak (recent) for $300. Less than $400 in 13 years ... not bad. I've taken good care, of course, with oil changes and all scheduled maintenance, but it's still got umph when I need it and the most comfortable seats I've ever found. Huge trunk and room in back seat are bonus, too.
Best FeaturesThe large comfy driver's seat. The cruise control on the steering wheel is easy to work by feel. The steering wheel is large and comfy. Love the sunroof.
Worst FeaturesThe wheels are 15 by 5.5 rather than a normal 15 by 6. Would make replacement easier if one breaks. Several parts (i.e. air filter) are more expensive types.
