Vehicle1997 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan
ReviewBought it new in 1997 for $9999.00 on a weekend sale ad. I thought it was going to be a strippo, but to my suprise it was a "sport model", which included head rests on rear seats, sportier front seats, alloy wheels, spoiler, body colored accents, am-fm casette with 4 speakers, intermitant wipers, chrome tip exhaust, etc. 105,000 miles later, extremely reliable car, just plain won't break! Oil changed every 5,000 miles, replaced front brakes, rear still good! Just make sure you replace that timing belt every 60,000 miles, or it could break and it will damage valves and maybe pistons when it goes.
Best FeaturesComfortable interior, roomy, nice looking exterior. Build quality really exellant, I have had all toyotas up till buying this, at least as good. Only had to replace electric radiator fan and an engine mount.
Worst FeaturesFocus seems to have evolved into a great replacement for the good old escort.
