1997 Ford Escort LX 4dr Wagon


I own a flag car business and escort oversize loads from Pennsylvania up and down the east cost. I went right to Mobile One and Slick Fifty when I bought this car. I average 11,000 miles a month, ha and you think you have a long drive to work. Plenty of power, 40+ miles per gallon at high speeds, fairly comfortable, plenty of room and I'm 6 ft. Great little car. I do use 5 speed's for my work. Automatic transmissions would not hold up to to the pounding we give these little cars. I had a '91 wagon and put 300,000 miles on it. Again, a great little car.

Best Features

Plenty of power with a 5 speed, great on gas, No major problems, and I'm not beat after 600 to 800 miles every day.

Worst Features

Seats could be just a little softer; when you travel in bad weather the side windows get pigged up from the design of the outside mirrors, not designed right.
