1993 Ford Escort LX 2dr Hatchback


Review

My mom bought the car in 1997 and the
only money she has had to put into it
was basic maintenance. It was mainly
used around town but is great on the
highway as well. It is now my college
car and a lot of miles have been put
on it, and has always been driven very
hard yet runs amazingly. The body has
always been poor but mechanically it
can't be beat.


Best Features

5 speed transmission, rear folding seats, economical on gas, and sporty looking


Worst Features

Better paint/body quality, larger cupholders

1993 Ford Escort LX 4dr Wagon


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.

1993 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


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.

1993 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


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.

1993 Ford Escort GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

Used to drive my mom's 96 LX around
with the weak 88 hp engine, my GT makes
40 more hp and the difference is
unbelievable! I drive this car around
100 miles per day for both work and
school and at 100,000 miles, it still
refuses to leak a drop of anything.
The only repairs have been the
replacement of maintainance parts such
as brake linings, and rotors. The
mazda engine, 5 speed, and sport tuned
suspension makes this car a blast to
drive.


Best Features

The mazda 1.8L DOHC engine that screams like a banshee up to 7000 rpm. Four wheel disc brakes, great gas mileage.


Worst Features

More legroom, I am six feet tall and my right leg rests against the center console. The worst cupholders ever designed for a car. O.E. tires are an oddball size, good luck finding them.
