The little red car that could!

1997 Ford Escort 4dr Sedan
Review
Bought this car new, and paid only $10,000! This car has paid for itself so many times over, I ought to build a shrine to it! This is the 4 door sedan, the LX sport. It came with special sport seats with rear headrests and different fabric than the base model, plus a better radio, a wing on the trunk, nicer alloy wheels, spoiler, etc. 170,000 miles with only wear and tear items replaced (belts, engine mount, catalytic converter) the front head light lenses fogged over and replaced, several sets of tires and brakes and oil changes pretty much it!
Favorite Features
So darn reliable, but a great car, too. My son is now driving it, and it's getting more abuse than I used to give it, but it still runs great! Good example of a perfect transportation car! The blue book now lists the true value at $1700.00, which is sad, but there's still a lot of life in her!
Suggested Improvements
All the improvements were addressed when Ford ended the Escort run and started the Ford Focus production.
