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.
I have been very pleased with this car. I am an
active outdoor enthusiast and have taken this
car places where others with two wheel drive
wouldn't go. The front wheel drive is excellent.
I have had virtually noproblems with this car
until recently when it started missing. Turns
out the plugs and wiring and timing belt were
all still original and should have ben replaced
30,000 miles ago anyway! So now that it has
been it is running great again.
car came from michigan. on way back the
car averaged approx. 35 mpg. since i've

spend most of your time in the city,
you can't do better bang for your
buck. Highway fuel economy averages to

drove it off of the dealer's lot.
This car has never left me stranded.
Replaced heater core (leaking coolant
in '99 $400), and the ignition ('03
$200). The ignition gave out when I
was at PepBoy's so, I wasn't really
stranded... Other than these items
and routine maintenance, everything
else is original. The
A/C still blows ice cold air during
hot TX summers, never serviced. I've
since bought a new
car but couldn't bare to trade it in.
In fact, I drive this car more than my
new minivan. ODO - 114K.
Dependable, good gas mileage, low
maintenance cost, and 4-star front and

thanks to the peeling black plastic
seals, no one will steal my wagon.
I must agree on the black seal on top
