1990 Ford Escort LX 4dr Hatchback


It was my first car. There was a
little bit more than 100,000 miles on
it when I bought it and it was 12
years old. The engine began to rattle
after about three months. Then the
ignition module broke down. The
starter was changed as well. About
four months after the purchase
the "check engine" light came on. It
just could not pick up any speed. The
mechanic said it burns oil and is not
worth further investment. I was heart-
broken. I also found out that I bought
it from an unofficial dealer. He must
have known the engine was worn out. It
was a waste of money and a lot of time
at the mechanic's.
