1995 Ford Escort LX 4dr Wagon

Review

We have owned this car since new, and it has become the car I love to hate. The hatchback/wagon design is immensely practical (why don't all brands have one?) and the mileage, at nearly 40mpg on the highway is great. Also, I agree with other reviewers that the drivetrain is as reliable as a hammer. Unfortunately, the interior noise level, complete lack of power, very weak brakes, and uncomfortable seats make this vehicle miserable to drive for any real length of time. Also, the quality of assembly is clearly lacking--doors don't fit right, wiring was faulty from new, etc.

Favorite Features

economy, decent interior space and practical design, overall reliability, purchase price was right

Suggested Improvements

Add power! needed better door seals, soundproofing, generally better construction...
