1995 Ford Escort Sedan LX 4dr Sedan


Review

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


Best Features

Great handling(upgrade struts all around which are koni), gas mileage 32- 45mpg, the boxie look of it, 2 and 3 gear feel very good, does well in high rev to get up to 75mph for highway pretty good


Worst Features

remove gas mileage to add power(88 hp just dont do it nore does the 108 ft/lbs torque),have to roll gear box geared too low in 1 gear and a bit too high in 4 and 5 gear, blows around way too easily in wind, clutch pedal too soft

Review

What an outstanding vehicle! This is the second Escort we have owned and this one has been even better than the last one. Currently showing 115K on the clock. Maintenance schedule has been: change the brakes, oil, sparkplugs and air filter -- nothing else. Only non-predicted failure has been alternator and battery at 110K -- $200. Timing belt went at 90K should have been changed at 60K anyway. Total repair bill $240. The car needs no oil between changes still returns 32-36 mpg. Basically, the car has been a dream. The only visit to the dealership in 7- years was for the timing belt. What more can one ask for in a vehicle?

Review

This car is our 3rd Escort and we recently purchased another to make 4! We have changed the oil and serviced it. That is it. It gets 36-40 mpg and is the most dependable car I have ever owned. It's easy to park and corners on a dime. I love my car!


Best Features

GREAT GAS MILEAGE AND NO REPAIRS! It takes curves like a sports car and gets great gas mileage like a great compact.


Worst Features

I would like electric door locks.

Review

I bought mine at auction 5 months ago for $900. The car was fairly trashed by the previous owner, but I was looking for something cheap and good on gas. It has 132,000 miles and still runs strong. Leaks a little oil and antifreeze but it still gets 35+ mpg running back and forth to work. Shame it wasn't taken care of, but I'll run it till it drops and find another one. The A/C is awesome, a must for living in the south.


Best Features

A/C, seats are comfortable, so far very reliable


Worst Features

I hate that automatic seat belt, I keep hitting my head on it getting out of the car.

Review

I've had this car for 5 years. I've replaced the battery, the timing belt, the radiator (only because I never flushed it), the tires, and the plugs. Otherwise, this has been an outstanding vehicle to own and operate. I highly recommend this for a college student or teen's first car.


Best Features

40+ MPG!!! Quick and responsive. Keep the oil and filters changed regularly. Durable, good-looking interior.


Worst Features

Needs an inside trunk release.
