Vehicle1994 Ford Escort LX 4dr Wagon
ReviewI 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.
Best FeaturesPrice. Fuel Economy.
Worst FeaturesBeef up the AC system. Make the Alternator more accessible
