1992 Ford Escort Hatchback GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

This car was a gift from my parents as a first car. The car is great. It gets good gas mileage and is fun to drive. For being only a 2-door the back seats are still roomy and I was able to fit my friends who are over 6 feet tall in it. But it's a good car and recommend it to first drivers because it's safe.


Favorite Features

My favorite feature is that the gas tank can't be accesed unless I pull the lever. It really stinks to get ypur gas siphoned.


Suggested Improvements

The only thing i would really change is the radio because it only plays tapes

Review

We bought this car with 115,000 miles for my husband. Works road construction and has the car has approximately 387,000 or 487,000 miles; he can't remember if he flipped it two or three times so far. We have only replace the alternator once, and a hose. Wonderful car, and fun to drive. Has some good get up and go!


Favorite Features

The fast pick up, and excellent gas mileage.


Suggested Improvements

Parts shouldn't be so hard to find, and expensive.

Review

I have been very impressed with this car.It has had only 3 problems:gas tank had a hole in it,a/c broke,and torque converter went out at 90k's.Even with those problems I think its a good commute car.Its comfortable,handles great,roomy,and fairly safe.I have been in 4 fender benders and after the fix it still looks great.Routine mantinace and it will last forever.


Favorite Features

Room,comfortable seats,good power,gas mileage,cup holders.


Suggested Improvements

Motorized seatbelts (blah).Who ever thought this was a good idea? I've also heard they compromise safety,but most early 90's cars have them :(
