I love my car!
By syne on
1999 Ford Escort SE 4dr Sedan
This was my first car and I purchased it with 83k miles on it. Five years later and we're up to 160k, and the timing belt just broke. But it's okay because my model has a non interference engine so it didn't do any other damage besides leaving me in a parking lot. I've done little to no maintenance in the last 80k miles and its been so good to me! I hope I can get this past 200k, and am planning on keeping it until it it dies. Fuel economy slowly shrinking, now its about 26mpg combined.
Auto windows, key-less entry, auto locks, cruise, non interference engine!!
Its pretty ugly, and the seats do get uncomfortable but only on 1k+ mile journeys. Spark plug wires rub on radiator belt which cause them to melt and malfunction; zip ties should fix this set (#3 in 2 years)
