can't complain

1997 Ford Escort 4dr Sedan
Review
i purchased this car from a family member with 105k on it. At that time, the car had never broken down, and ran like a dream (especially w/105k). Every 3k, the oil had been changed and all maintance recommendations were followed. I would average 28+ MPG, even while i was driving like an idiot. After 130k, the transmission begin slipping quite often and fuel economy began to fall off quickly. I can't complain about the cheap parts and quality when an escort makes it to 135k.
Favorite Features
fuel economy, disposable car to run into the ground, ability to corner quickly, 135k until problems started, always started right up, never broke down
Suggested Improvements
better sound system, more comfortable seats
