1999 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


Review

I bought my Escort brand new and it has been an awesome basic car to have. It has only "dumped" me once, and it was my fault because I ignored the dying battery warning signs. I have the 5 spd and it never gets less than 34 MPG no matter what the conditions. It averages 36. Escorts will go forever with care, and I expect to see this one get 150,000 miles.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage Compact-easy to maneuver and park


Suggested Improvements

More power

1999 Ford Escort ZX2 Hot 2dr Coupe


Review

I have owned my ZX2 since 1999. At that time it had a lot of horsepower and equipment for a reasonable price. It has been a good investment. At six years, the car has is still running with its original factory-installed battery. I replaced the tires (because I did not bother to rotate the original ones properly), but have I not invested a dime in repairs. It has been very reliable car. Too bad Ford decided to discontinue it, Escorts in general seem to be reliable cars. I am glad I bought the car and when ready to purchase another car, I will consider another Ford car.


Favorite Features

Decent horsepower and fuel economy. The stereo system is decent.


Suggested Improvements

The front seats should slide out of the way to allow passengers to gain access to the back seat. The manual transmission is notchy.

1999 Ford Escort SE 4dr Wagon


Review

This has been the most reliable car I have ever owned. The mileage has always been great and I have not had any major repairs that weren't covered by the warranty. Economical - Yes! Efficient - Yes! Would I buy it again? Yes!


Favorite Features

I would have to say the radio and the cruise control.


Suggested Improvements

Can't think of any except to make satellite radio a standard feature.
