reliable ride but not fun to drive

1999 Ford Escort SE 4dr Wagon
Overall it has been a good, sturdy car. It rides very smoothly and has great visibility. Excellent turning radius and not bulky to drive. A few things to consider before you buy is that it is not made for a small person. The seats don't adjust higher and sit very low. Even with the steering wheel tilted as far down as possible I still feel like the air bag will explode in my face. It is very sluggish to accelerate. In the dark it is almost impossible to find where to put it in drive without putting the ceiling light on. Also, you can't get a CD player for less than $250 due to the integration of the radio and the other controls.
Keyless entry, power windows and locks, smooth and quiet ride, very reliable, great AC.
More acceleration! Adjustable seats, light up gears, easier to install CD player.
