I loved this car. Bought it new and just after the warranty expired the air conditioner broke. Was about $300 to fix. One other thing went wrong about 6 months later that cost about the same. Other than that this is a great car. I swore I would never buy an Escort but this car was great. We totaled it last week when we hit a deer. I'd buy another but they don't make them anymore.
Front console was easy to use. Lots of room in back. Comfortable seats. Had the 5 speed; very peppy!
Passenger side airbag has flap that shatters windshield when the air bag deploys. Dumb design.
