1997 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I drive 100 miles a day round\trip to work. I've changed the oil every 3,000 miles, bought two sets of tires, changed all the belts and hoses at 100,000 miles, and replaced the brakes at the same time. The car has never laid down on me. I have not had to replace so much as a burned out bulb. It's not the hottest car, but it sure has gotten me back and forth quite well for the past four years.

Best Features

35-38 mpg consistently, even using the ac

Worst Features

Go to shocks rather than struts. Struts cost $1400.00 to replace. Shocks are $49.95 each installed.
