1993 Ford Escort LX 4dr Wagon


Review

I love my escort & it has been very
reliable. Have taken many road trips
with it & never had any problems.Other
than normal maint. I have only replaced
the clutch,the dr side cv joint and
heater core. I have never been stranded
in all my travels. In 02 it finally
gave out w/163000 miles. Had motor
replaced runs great now and odometer
reads 200589 (actual is 63000 on new
motor). Interior good cond and exterior
no rust just some scratches and bumper
damage from some idiot backing into me
and not said a word. I have used and
abused this car for multiple purposes.
Think of buying another car but not
sure I want to part w/my baby.


Best Features

Great MPG, low maintenance. Great for hauling almost anything.Love the power seatbelts, never have to worry about remembering to put it on.


Worst Features

I agree with everyone else about the black strips under the window peeling, so I pulled mine off and spray painted the strips black, looked better than the silver.

Review

I brought this car to have my first
car. I have used it to go back and
forth to school everyday. I have not
had many problems. I brought the car
with 119,000 miles on it, it now has
135,115 miles. Normal oil changes and
etc.


Best Features

The large space in the rear. The fold flat seats. I like the seat belts.Good gas mileage, it has gone down some with the miles.


Worst Features

Better engine, when a/c is on, really takes a while to get going. More leg room in the back seats.

Review

I used this car to haul 8ft lumber in
sdie with hatch close. Also. I
installed a hitch to haul small
trailers with home improvement items.
The car was abused, I guess, but kept
going strong. I replaced the exhaust
and struts twice, and clutch once but
little else.
To keep the AC from running constantly,
I tinted the 7 windows. Big winter
boots tended to rub the brake pedal
when using the gas pedal. A small seat
cushion helped smooth out the rough
Michigan highway roads and is required
for long trips.
The car was worth every penny I spent
on it. Great gas mileage.


Best Features

Ability to put long items inside with hatch closed. dependable engine w/ no oil used.


Worst Features

more ground clearance in snow.

Review

This has been a great car. Orginally
bought after a divorce when needing an
in-expensive car to get me by. Well,

maintainence, Replaced tires & battery
& rear springs. Thats it!! Great,
dependable car, fun to drive
especially in snow. Still looks (near)
new today.


Best Features

Faily sporty looking (w/ Tinted windows) Hauls family w/ luggage, low- key (no tickets, break-ins, theft)


Worst Features

some of the black trim items are fading/peeling.
