The Escort is a reliable piece of basic
transportation. It gets you from point
A to point B with minimal fuss.
Unfortunately, with the 1.9L engine,
you also get minimal acceleration.
Road noise is excessive, even for a
small car, but the ride is quite supple
for a car of this age (the chassis
first debuted on the Protege in 1990).
Not a bad little car overall, very
Simple, clean styling...both inside and
out. Fuel economy. Strong
reliability...it's never let me down.
Lower the road noise! Get rid of the
motorized seat belts!
