1992 Ford Escort Hatchback GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

This car is quick and very fun to
drive. This car also has style with
its fog lamps, alloy wheels, and
spoiler. This car is cheap and you'll
have a blast driving it.


Best Features

The hatchback and rear folding seats make this car great for hauling. I put put everything I own in it when I moved to college.


Worst Features

Drop in a K&N and get some new rubber and your ready to rock.

Review

Although an Escort, I must say I am
VERY pleased with this vehicle. I have
put better than 100,000 miles on this
vehicle since 1995 and only have had to
replace the tie-rod ends and the normal
maintenance items like spark plugs,
filters, and tires. It isn't a
glamorous car but to get to-and-fro, it
performed well beyond my expectations.


Best Features

I am thrilled with the fuel economy and the esay of hauling smaller items having fold down seats and a hatchback


Worst Features

Looks for starters and a bit more leg room and head room as I am fairly tall and found it a bit "stuffy."

Review

This was my first car. I hope I get as
much satisfaction out of my future
vehicles as I got out of this 1992 Ford
Escort LX. The only thing I had to
replace was 2 timing belts and the AC
stop working in this past year. It
took me and my own 250000 miles.
That's the same distance to the moon.
I just traded it for newer vehicle.
To the workers of Ford. . .Salute.

Review

Car has left us stranded a few
different times in the past five years.
Twice with transmission problems and
once the timing belt broke. Car has run
good most of time but I don't dare
drive too far from home anymore. I have
heard from others that transmission is
problem for this car.


Best Features

Decent gas milage.


Worst Features

fix transmission problems, paint pealing on top of car.

Review

I recently got rid of my 1992 Ford
Escort LX with Auto trans. My wife
burned out the tranny, it had 118,000
miles on it and running strong. I had
purchased it for college commutes and
it worked great and I love hatchs. This
car took me through cold winters and
blistering hot summers. I decided to
let it go because they were wanting to
put a re-built tranny on her and it
would cost more than the car was worth,
so I gave it to my father in-law and he
fixed the tranny and is now driveing
again.


Best Features

A/C, Good in Snow and quiet peppy.


Worst Features

Power locks and windows.
