1997 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan

Review

This car did't give me one problem at all and I never had one item ever break on it and it was never in the shop for anything other then routine maintenance until just recently and it was a big one. The car has 121,000miles and the #1 Piston is hitting the valve and the only solution is total engine replacement. Car was VERY reliable until it hit the 120,000 mark. If the miles are low and the price is right you should go for it as I really enjoyed owning it but once you hit that 100,000 you should be thinking about selling it or trading it in.

Best Features

Pre 100,000Mi reliability.

Worst Features

Do not combine stereo and a/c controls into one componant as it makes it hard to have the stereo replaced. Long term reliabilty. 1997 shouldn't blow and engine in 2002.
