Very Reliable Car
By Happy Camper on
1996 Ford Escort LX 2dr Hatchback
I bought this car brand new in 1996.
It had 12 miles when I got it, and now
has 110,000+. The only thing I ever
had to do was keep the oil changed.
Once I hit 110,000 miles, I did
replace the timing belt and fan belt,
but those are the only mechanical
problems I've ever had. All in all,
it's been a super reliable car.
Car has some pep for the engine size.
Fold-down rear seats give extra cargo
Cupholders are poorly designed, and
the car does have some vibrations once
you get up around 70.
