Keeps On Going....

1993 Ford Escort LX 4dr Wagon

Review

Bought Green '93 Wagon because of excellent deal at dealers auction. I move alot, so dragging my beefed up '78 Firebird w/ V8 not good idea, gas, etc. So thats where this car comes into the picture. So far I've been pretty happy with it. Interior imaculant and exterior not to shabby. I found the interior to be better in quality than the newer cars today. I want to buy a new car, but none of the Sedans out there seem to satisfy my taste and budget. Hate to get rid of this car being so dependable. Don't much like the new Ford's, so looking at Toyota Corolla in future.

1993 Ford Escort LX 2dr Hatchback

Review

This car was bought brand new to be my "college car". Couldn't have asked for anything better. Although, I think a manual transmission is necessary. My girlfriend had a '95 auto, and she sold because her second tranny went out at 110,000. Her original tranny went out at 60,000 miles, which I hear is common with Fords. But with the manual, no problems there. Mine now has 110,000 miles on it and has been fairly reliable. No major problems, only maintenance for normal wear and tear. I would suggest this car to anyone who needs to get from point A to point B at a very affordable price.

Review

I loved this car. Inexpensive and reliable...a real Model T. I put 90K on it before I gave it to my daughter. MPG is very good. Few things have gone wrong with it. Great in the snow. Simple to work on. It's not the most comfortable car on long trips, but a roomy little hauler great for getting to work or school. Regular oil changes have helped it to last. Rust has to be looked after now and then. K&N air filter really improved performance! I hope I get it back when my daughter is done with it! Too bad they don't still make them.

Review

Most reliable car I ever owned! Routine maintenance only. Body/paint integrity remains excellent. Original exhaust and clutch at 148K miles. Would have bought another one but they stopped making the wagon!! Can't afford insurance on two cars so I'm trying to sell it to a good home!

Great Economical Car

Review

Ever since I've had my car, I have been impressed for the value. I have only had to make some minor repairs along the way but so far it's performed better than I expected. The gas mileage is great, especially since I drive a lot between my home town and where I am currently working. A one way trip is about 215 miles. I've put a lot of miles on my car since I've had it and I can't complain. A great car for your money

Good car

1993 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan

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.

I would like to sell my car to purchase a newer one. The car has been depaendable but 10 years old and time to move up to a little nicer car. I just need to know what price I should consider selling this car for.
