1993 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


Review

This has got to be the best car I have ever owned. Phenomenal reliability and durability, especially for an American made car in the early 90's. Other than brakes and exhaust, this baby has everything else original, and I can't ever remember a time it has refused to start, drive, or generally perform like I wanted it to. Too bad they don't make the Escort any more, as the Focus appears constantly plagued by a slew of problems, both cosmetic and mechanical. If you can find a used Escort anywhere between '92-'99, grab it & hold on to it; you won't regret it.


Best Features

No question about it, besides the rock solid reliability, the GAS MILEAGE pays dividends these days - I get about 35-40 mpg on a regular basis, mixed highway and city driving.


Worst Features

Can't really think of any - everything you need, nothing you don't. Not much to look at, but who cares, really, as long as you got wheels that keep on rolling.

Review

I have had this car since it was one
year old. It has been a great car and
it would have been even better had I
not taken it to som horrible mechanics.
It is getting old now but it is so
economical that I just refuse to let
go. The dogs love it too. It is perfect
for them.


Best Features

The little container in between the front two seats has served as a water bowl for the past 5 years for my two dogs. A feature I have yet to find in all the new cars I have tested. Weird need but...for us it has worked out great!


Worst Features

None. I only wish I had a good reliable mechanic. It's been a great car.

Review

I bought my LX sedan used with 16,000
miles on it, and have since put on
130,000 more miles. I have replaced
the clutch at 130,000, put in a used
rebuilt A/C at 110,000, otherwise
routine maintenance, tires, etc. I
can cruise on the highway very easily
at 85mph and this car is as solid as a
rock, no shakes or rattles. I don't
worry about door dings, grocery carts
because it is an Escort...bring it
on! It still has tremendous pep in
the acceleration with the manual
tranny. For the money spent, this has
been an amazing car and I will have a
hard time giving it up.


Best Features

Reliability, fuel economy.


Worst Features

Cup holder not well designed...big deal.

Review

A great little car. It would be even
better if I had not taken it to
horrible places such as All Tune and
Lube in Fairfax. They fixed one thing
and destroyed another...Having a great
mechanic is important, and I think
with the help of one, the Ford Escort
93 can keep going and going and going.

Review

I was surprised at the reliability of
this little car. We actually never had
any very major repairs needed - engine
and transaxle still going strong at
119000 miles.
Problems: timing belt went at EXACTLY
80k miles (give or take a few). Bad
thermostat caused fan to come on just
before the car ran hot. Suspension took
a beating in Boston - 2 sets of tie
rods, axles.


Best Features

Plenty of engine power and very reliable on the major components


Worst Features

automatic seat belts
