1996 Ford Escort LX 2dr Hatchback

Review

This car is a JOY to drive.I LOVE THIS CAR! 5sp and my GOD is it peppy for a 1.9L! I had a few problems, mostly due to the fact it had been totalled before I bought it. The speedo jumps and makes a scratching noise due to a frayed cable, the 2nd gear synchro is off so downshifting always grinds going into second, and that DAMNED check engine light! it came on a week after I bought it, I had a cylinoid replaced, and that fixed it for another week. I had it checked twice, both times no codes. after that I just ignored it. many fond memories with this car. GREAT MILEAGE! and TONS of fun to drive. I'd get another one in a second!

Best Features

manual trans was great! good turning radius. surprisingly roomy

Worst Features

cup holders!!! bad placement and not deep enough to actually keep a cup from falling over. fix the ghost that turns on the "check engine" light and I'll be happy.
