1991 Ford Escort GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

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.

1991 Ford Escort GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

I bought this with 120,000 mi. as a
second car for long work commuting. So
far it runs great and from what the
previous owner told me, it always has.
Has nice styling and looks more
aggressive than your average Honda
Civic.


Best Features

GT styling pkg, DOHC engine, interior.


Worst Features

Sluggish off the line with the automatic, small cupholders, back end gets a little loose over bumps.

Review

Aquired car 1/99 and average 25,000
miles annually. By the end of '03 it
will have 200,000 on. ALL ORIGINAL
except air filter, belts and water
pump. Still has original plugs, wires,
sensors etc. Thought about replacing
them, but averaging 35 mpg (and 40.8 on
trips) I ask myself...WHY? This car
sees mostly highway miles, and
occassionally the local drag strip.


Best Features

Just plain RELIABLE! Has pretty decent power and is a blast to drive! I love it! Cost of ownership doesn't get any lower then this.


Worst Features

Forget the Focus, build 91-96 Escort GT's!! (Cannot comment on the ZX2 as I have no experience w/ them.)
