1994 Ford Escort LX 4dr Wagon
Review
I bought this '94 Escort wagon (70K) in '98 for my High school daughter. At 90K we lost the AC and paid about $1200 to replace. Since 95K, I've had it in the shop continually with engine troubles. At 103K mi, an $85 diagnostic revealed a dead cylinder due to a burnt valve...needs a $1000 valve job. I sold it to a mechanic for $500. I suspect that my daughter burned up the engine (driving too fast, accelerating too fast, passing, gunning the engine) although I kept the oil changed every 3000 mi. I'm replacing the Wagon with a '98 Escort LX sedan (47K mi), but this time I'm getting a 5 speed. I expect the AC will fail around 80K.
Favorite Features
Price. Fuel Economy.
Suggested Improvements
Beef up the AC system. Make the Alternator more accessible
