maybe its jsut the particular car i
got, but ive had nothing but trouble
with it. 500 miles into my ownership,
the ac goes out. dealer replaces
compressor (for exorbitant price of
$400) but radiator starts leaking. my
freakin' speedometer doesnt even work!
even though ive heard of lots of people
that have loved this car, i see no
reason to spend the money on it. why
bother when you can get a comparable
civic (better reliability and mileage)
for about a grand more?
MPG, nice alloy rims
replace it. (thankfully, they did, and
the focus is a wholly more competent
car than the escort could ever dream
of. my friend owns one and loves it -
i drove it and highly reccomend it.)
