I brought this 1996 Escort wagon new in
1996. I currently have 114,000 miles on
it and have had zero problems. It get's
great mileage and I can carry just
about anything with it. I also pull a
trailer with a motorcycle on it and the
Escort does fine as long as you don't
have to use the air. I don't know how
good the new Ford Focus is but I think
Ford made a mistake when the got rid of
the Escort wagon. My wagon has a
standart shift and will keep up with
any situation I've found myself in.
