1999 Ford Escort SE 4dr Wagon

Review

I purchased this wagon after reviewing other buyers comments 2 years ago. My inlaws also have 2 wagons and have had great success. At 56,000 miles one front wheel bearing and the clutch went. 3,000 miles later the clutch went again and it was discovered that the transmission was leaking fluid into the clutch so we replaced the transmission. Now at 61,000 the car is surging on the highway and I have a 5 hour trip planned for this weekend. The mechanic looked it over good and found a cracked fan belt, broken rear spring, look tie rod end and the surging.... well it's definately the clutch.

Best Features

Big buttons on radio, cruise on steering wheel, power mirrors.

Worst Features

The oil filler cap sits in a recessed casting that collects dirt. It is hard to clean out before taking the cap off and no doubt is cause for more than a little dirt getting into the oil.
