This is the second 1994 Escort GT I
owned. Both cars have been simply
great. I could not resist buying in
OCT/2001 my second '94 GT, it only had
40,800 miles. Today JAN/2003 the car is
9 years old and 50,400 miles and in
perfect condition. So far I only
replaced the original Goodyear GT+4
tires for excellent Goodyear Aquatred
3. I got new ceramic brake pads (no
black dust!) on all wheels. My only
complaint is that the driver power
window is working slow, probably an
early indication of failure. It is a
lot of fun to see how many new 4
cylinder cars still fall behind my GT
when drag racing.
Very peppy engine.
Good suspension stability.
Good gas mileage on city and great on
Fitting stuff in the car is no problem.
Remember, this is a hatchback!
If a new Escort generation is ever
created, it should be done based on
the '94 GT spirit not the later used
soap and slow generation that followed.
