1996 Ford Escort LX 4dr Hatchback

Review

My Ford Escort is the first car I've ever owned. I loved the style and now I love the car! I bought it brand new in 1996, and finally got a tune-up (2001)! I'm not that nice to it, but the only problems I've had were after 4 -6 years of Michigan driving, and 4 or 5 trips to Atlanta, GA. She now has almost 100,000 miles. The mileage is great, the ride is great; she's reliable, especially considering what I haven't done. Routine stuff? Nope, haven't done them. Sometimes I do the oil. She's a beaut!

Favorite Features

The hatchback style. I love the profile.

Suggested Improvements

The trunk cover could be more secure. Also, the front seat door pockets could be more secure...I use them to push open the door, and now I've kicked one off (took 6 years of abuse, though).
