1998 Ford Escort SE 4dr Wagon

Review

This car is what you'd expect, a 4/5 person economical car mover with a little more space because it's a wagon. My Escort was totaled last week, T-boned at a traffic light. Honda CR-V ran the red light, impacted my car on the front right corned just in front of the tire. Both air bags deployed, all seat belts held, everyone survived, air bags bruised our faces pretty well. This car saved all 3 of us. Due to the car being 9 years old the car was totaled, not because of extensive damage but because the air bags cost $1K each plus labor. Yes I'd buy another Escort if I needed good cheap transportation, 36 MPG highway.

Favorite Features

We live in Arizona and the AC will freeze you out...that's a good thing when its 115 degrees out.

Suggested Improvements

Recall item: Motor mounts cause vehicle to vibrate on country roads. Low power makes it slow to pull out into traffic.
