1996 Ford Escort 2dr Hatchback
Review
I just bought a used 1996 Escort. It was a steal and the mileage, 40,000! This simple and economic and RELIABLE car gets me places. I see a lot of elderly people driving around here in the 80's Civic hatchbacks and other subcompacts, so I'm guessing that this particular Escort was one of those "elderly cars," being operated within the warranty as long as possible. This one's gonna last me a long while, I know it. So, if there's a 96 Escort out there for sale, - don't be a fool - buy it. It's the last of its kind. Great mileage, decent looks, easy to maintain.
Favorite Features
A/C's got a push-in knob that looks like the 8-ball. Airflow choices are written, no cartoons to interpret. And they GLOW! Functional dashboard, easy to view and operate. Drink holders came with black plastic liner, no spilling.
Suggested Improvements
Are you kidding?! NO! Just keep the oil changed every three months, and use Mobil motor oil for the motor. I've owned several cars and this was the best purchase I've made on a car.
