1997 Ford Escort LX 4dr Wagon

Review

I purchased my Escort in 2000 with 13,000 miles on it. After 19,000 miles of light duty, I was told that I needed new rear coil springs. I spoke to several people that owned the same vehicle, and several mechanics (including the service manager at my local Ford dealership), and was told that this is a common problem that Ford is aware of, but not footing the bill for. Otherwise, a reliable, but not very interesting, econobox. Total lack of ergonomic ingenuity.

Favorite Features

None.

Suggested Improvements

Doesn't really matter, at this point, but the general layout leaves a lot to be desired.
