My Escort does not run well. The exhaust manifold got a crack in it and it takes a whole block to get up to 25 mph. The battery has died at least 5 times, even though i bought a new one. I get regular oil changes and replace the air filter. All the repairs this car need cost over $400 per thing to be fixed. Also, the flywheel in my transmission is bent so it makes a loud clicking noise whenever I am not accelerating. if you want a reliable car get a Honda Accord or something similar.
Ny fav features are limited, but there are a few. The trunk has just the right amount of space and the radio works great, but if you want a CD player you have to get a changer put in the trunk because of the design of the radio and heat controls.
Better build, more power, better interior design (concerning the radio and heat controls).
