I bought this car as a second car. It
has since become my primary car. What a
fun car. I can't say enough about the
fun to drive factor. It surprises most
drivers out there. They see Escort and
laugh. When the light turns green. I'm
the one laughing. It is easy to
maintain. Fun to drive.And Very
reliable. I bouught it with 66,000
miles on it and within a year put
30,000 miles. It has never even seen
the inside of a service shop beside for
oil changes. Good job Ford and Mazda!!
The Mazda 16valve DOHC engine,the 5
speed,the handling as well as the looks
of the car.
My one and only complaint. It's just to
darn loud at highway speeds over 70mph
