1999 Ford Escort SE 4dr Sedan

Review

It is a very simple car. It isn't powerful. It isn't very comfortable. I can feel almost every bump in the road. The A/C works like a dream on freeways but not very well at a stop. I put 58,000 miles on the car and have had to put it in the shop twice. In both instances, it was for a bad alternator. If everything I have said seems negative, keep in mind that this car ran me $11,000 out the door. For the money, this is the BEST car I have had. If your purpose for purchasing a car is a cheap, fairly dependable, vehicle that will get you where you need to go, then the Escort is it.

Favorite Features

Cheap car to drive. Good on gas. Insurance remains low.

Suggested Improvements

Not much can be done without increasing the cost of ownership. However, better design of the drink holders is a start. Also, find a better alternator manufacturer.
