Forget this ambassador of Ford junk
By elly2 on
1999 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan
When it was new it was problem free but after a few years and miles even with good maintenance and light driving the problems start showing up.
I now expect major work on an annual basis.
No doubt the CCRM failed on the A/c which is common to this model, rear springs snapped which is also common, engine pipe fell off, speedometer meter in the axle broke, and even the shift console light doesn't work, and now some kind of power sapping engine problem.
Driving this car is zero fun and all hassle.
Nobody is going to rifle through it if you forget to lock the doors.
I'd say stop making it but Ford already figured that out.
