1994 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan

Review

Overall, the best car I have ever owned, hands down. I am the original owner, and have close to 250K on it. I'm not religious about oil changes every 3000, but I get to them eventually. There's plenty of power in the manual trans 1.9 engine, I can pull steep grades with a full load of passengers & luggage running in 4th gear. I'm on my 5th set of tires, 4th windshield (darn rocks), 3rd water pump (they go after about 120K, easy fix tho), 2nd radiator (replaced at 210K), 5th timing belt. Those are all pretty minor, even expected things. The engine, manual trans, A/C, suspension, body, interior, all have been rock solid.

Favorite Features

Power mirrors; comfortable steering wheel; fold down rear seats; power in manual transmission model

Suggested Improvements

Cooling system was a little suspect, was a little gummy, eventually had to replace the radiator. Had to replace heater core at 44K. Bigger interior (I'm a big guy). Roof rack rails eventually got sun damaged and cracked.
