Love My Wagon

1993 Ford Escort LX 4dr Wagon
I've had my navy blue wagon since I
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
side crash rating. Safety feature:
thanks to the peeling black plastic
seals, no one will steal my wagon.
I must agree on the black seal on top
of doors and the cup holders. I've
spilled too many drinks from taking
sharp turns as well. Cloth on sun
visors are coming apart from the hot
