Great in town -peppy drive if you stay
in torque range (3750 & up)--easy
lane changes, great visibility, intr.
noise low. seat best in near upright.
Yoko Avid Touring tires are a perfect
compliment to this wagon! Frim,
stable, grip, and corner. Wagon will
oversteer if you don't go spritely into
the corner--waking up stabliz'n rear
assembly. Ford means 80lbs in the
boot! Heavy loads off the axle are
nerve racking. Drop the seat --pull it
out! Smart pack can put 625lbs of
goods in; predictable ride follows.
Very Utilitarian w/smart looks--Ford
really did a nice exit w/the escort
drive;mpg; 3rd & 4th gear ratio (keep
up rpm); clean burn; back hatch
accomdates big loads ; low used car
price tag. Better Econ. than Most!
lateral seat support; torque
@2500RPM for short inner city hauls;
more sound dampening in hatch.
