1991 Ford Escort GT 2dr Hatchback


I've had my Escort GT for 13 years! I
bought it brand new in 1990, have put
160,000 miles on it, and in all that
time, I've had only two repairs. One
$98 ignition switch and one oil leak
(recent) for $300. Less than $400 in
13 years ... not bad. I've taken good
care, of course, with oil changes and
all scheduled maintenance, but it's
still got umph when I need it and the
most comfortable seats I've ever
found. Huge trunk and room in back
seat are bonus, too.

Best Features

The large comfy driver's seat. The cruise control on the steering wheel is easy to work by feel. The steering wheel is large and comfy. Love the sunroof.

Worst Features

The wheels are 15 by 5.5 rather than a normal 15 by 6. Would make replacement easier if one breaks. Several parts (i.e. air filter) are more expensive types.
