I purchased a Cayman Green 1992 Ford Escort GT in December of 1991. I was in the Navy and stationed in Jacksonville, FL, I'd just returned from Desert Storm/Shield/Provide Comfort and immediately went to Mike Shad Ford on Blanding Blvd. My salesman had shown me several cars that weren't to my liking. Then a truck loaded with cars pulled up, and there it was. I said that I take it without taking it for a test ride. This was my first car and it never let me down. I drove it from Florida to Arkansas, three days later for Christmas. I'd make at least 5 more trips like this in that car. It's the most memorable car that I've ever owned.
I bought this car as a second car to use on my private investigation job. I have driven it all over NJ and am now in NC. I only intended to get a year or so out of it, since it had 94K on it when I bought it in 2002. Now 6 years latter I still have it. It has hardly cost me anything since I bought it. A/C, everything works great. Getting 25 mpg around town and 30 on hwy. I would like something newer, but can't get rid of this car. Best $1,100 ever spent getting it.
Able to carry almost anything in the cargo area. Fuel economy.
This car was a gift from my parents as a first car. The car is great. It gets good gas mileage and is fun to drive. For being only a 2-door the back seats are still roomy and I was able to fit my friends who are over 6 feet tall in it. But it's a good car and recommend it to first drivers because it's safe.
My favorite feature is that the gas tank can't be accesed unless I pull the lever. It really stinks to get ypur gas siphoned.
The only thing i would really change is the radio because it only plays tapes
We bought this car with 115,000 miles for my husband. Works road construction and has the car has approximately 387,000 or 487,000 miles; he can't remember if he flipped it two or three times so far. We have only replace the alternator once, and a hose. Wonderful car, and fun to drive. Has some good get up and go!
The fast pick up, and excellent gas mileage.
Parts shouldn't be so hard to find, and expensive.
