This is the third Escort I have owned. I have kept all for a long, long time. And this will be the last. Each seems to have taken a step down in quality. Strange engine creaks and rattles still plague this car. There was missing weatherstripping from day one, so the window leaks. And now, the exterior trim is peeling. There's no lip on the edge of the windshield, so when you use the washers it sprays in the driver's window. I've replaced most of the parts (including a FUEL TANK!) and hope the car lasts a few more months till I gather the cash to buy a new one. After this experience (and with another Ford) it will NOT be a Ford. Quality like this, no wonder they're in trouble.

When I had just turned 16 I asked dad
for help getting a car. He didn't tell
me but went out and bought a 95 escort
that was a company car and had 153000
miles on it. To top it off it was
purple. I wasn't crazy about the color
but i was glad to have my own wheels. I
no longer have this car because it
finally died, but i can't complain since
it had over 200,000 miles on it, not
sure of actual milage because odometer
broke and i have to get a new one that
read 100k less than what i had on it.
great car, few problems , inner tie

I have owned this car for 9+ years
with only normal maintenance
(oil,filters,air-filter and such).
It has performed wonderfully. When I
purchased it I wanted a small,reliable
car and that is what I got. I could
not be happier with my purchase.

I am only 16 and this is my first car.
Dad bought it because it was $300
expecting to do hardly
anything to it but someone street raced
it and it was stolen therefore we had
to buy a new clutch, ignition, door
lock, spark plugs, tires and speed
sensor(thanks to potholes in west
virginia that busted both front tires
and sensor). It had pretty much brand
new brakes on it but they must be
cheap because I have hit them hard a
few times and they just dont grap hard
enough but the pedal is nice and stiff.
It can handle like a dream since the
guy upgraded the struts and it can do
60mph on a 25mph rated on ramp(thats
the fastest i have tried). 32-45mpg
