I have had some problems with my little
scort, but we are working them out. I
had a intensly bad problem when I was
at an idling speed the car would begin
to jolt, this was especially scary on
the highway at fast speeds. My mechanic
told me that it was the EGR (exhaust
gasket registor), it is a emmisiions
control device that was causing the
exhaust to plug up. Now that I have
this problem taking care of I have
fallen in love with this car. I am
currently adding performance parts
under the hood. I also plan on painting
it Emerald green in the summer of 2003!

I'm 18, purchased my first car last
year, a ford escort, hunter green.
First thing I should have noticed is
that the last owner had a rebuilt
engine, no biggie I thought, then it
cost me $3500 in pure repairs after one
year, the car has a new engine,
transmission, radiator, alternator,
brakes, a/c system and cooling fan, all
replaced by me out of pocket. The car
will cause you problem after problem
and when you do finally catch up on the
payments from the repairs it will break
on you again and again.
