1998 Ford Escort SE 4dr Wagon

Review

I bought this Escort, my first car, with 55k miles on it and drove it until the transmission went at 210k miles. Every month from the time I bought it, it was in the shop. I had to replace everything, some things twice, such as the muffler and exhaust. I replaced the e-brake, shocks, struts, fuel injection system, intake valve, just about everything in this car. I loved it because it was my first car and the fact that it was so roomy, I loved having so much space in the back. I used to see these on the road all the time, but now I hardly ever see one, I'm guessing it's because they all fell apart.

Favorite Features

Exterior was fine, paint didn't peel even after very high mileage. The hatchback was easy to use and had plenty of space.

Suggested Improvements

I wish it had been made with better quality parts, so I wouldn't have to have spent so much money fixing it.
