1993 Ford Escort Wagon LX 4dr Wagon


Review

Bought 8/07 w/94k miles. Only had to replace the MAF sensor when I bought it as the previous owner put tape over the check engine light. Use it for commuting (35 mi/day) mostly. Great AC, fun to drive, cheap on gas (better than my 72 Bronco). No oil leaks. This is my 2nd Escort SW, first being an 84 diesel. Both have been great.


Best Features

AC, Auto trans, great mileage and reliability.


Worst Features

No sense in this as it's no longer manufactured.

Review

Before I owned this car, a manual transmission 4 door wagon, I owned the same thing, except for in an automatic form. My opinion, the manual is the better of the both. Even my wife loves driving it, which is odd, because she'd always prefer automatics. It can get a little dicey in the winter, especially where I used to live in B.C., but it's the funnest car I've ever driven. I could have a little more leg room, but I'm only 5 foot 8, so it doesn't matter. My Escort is the plainest Escort you could ever get, but for some weird reason, it has power mirrors. The seats are manual, the locks and the windows. But that's what I love about this car.


Best Features

-1.8 litre engine -Manual transmission. Low height of car

Review

I bought my wagon two years ago, not knowing it would be the greatest used car I have ever purchased. Excellent gas mileage, and lots of room for storage. Sure, lots of new parts are on this wagon, but the Mazda powerplant still runs flawlessly at 150K miles.


Best Features

The cold air conditioner, the folding seats, the fact that everyone hates my grocery getter, while cops refuse to pull over a wagon.


Worst Features

The engine's performance takes a serious hit when the AC is on. I'm talking like.. a 50% decrease of performance.

Review

Only replaced minor things. Biggest problem was the heater core at around 150xxxmiles. Just replaced the brake pads (front), minor tune ups, oil changes, etc. The AC leaks somewhere but its not a problem since I use the car as a winter beater now. It gets GREAT mileage. The clutch needs to be replaced soon. Changed 4 winter tires (13" lol).$300bucks installed. Once went on fishing trip, you guys wouldnt even imagine. 6 passengers! (1 guy in the trunk lol). One cooler full of beer, portable bbq, tackle box, rods, etc. We must of had a combined weight of 1200lbs. Performance thrown out of the window. I love this car!


Best Features

great mileage, cheap maintenance, very reliable, awesome in the winter with the right tires


Worst Features

Arm rest, better material for the sun visor, better spring mechanism for the door handles (the rears seems to get stuck), peeling window trims, foggy headlight lense, better cup holders, more power for the engine.

Review

I've had this car since it was new and it has never failed to get me where I want to go. It has been kept outside, and has always started, at 95 degrees or zero degrees, just turn the key. The kids are older now and we need something that holds 6 people, which is the only reason I'm going to sell it.
