1997 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan

Review

I bought this car with about 33,000 miles on it, for my 18 year old son to use in central Florida. We put a CD player in it. Apart from oil changes every 5-7,000 miles, a battery, tires, a change of belts @ 57,000, and a $700 rear end repair when a strut gave out, this car has been through 105,000 miles. The A/C still blows cold. The brakes need replacing. I'd say we got our money's worth out of this car. Too bad they don't make them any more.

Best Features

For basic transportation, this car is hard to beat. Not much for salvage value, but I didn't expect much.

Worst Features

Make more of them. Maybe with a CD player as standard equipment.
