I have been very impressed with this
car.It has had only 3 problems:gas tank
had a hole in it,a/c broke,and torque
converter went out at 90k's.Even with
those problems I think its a good
commute car.Its comfortable,handles
great,roomy,and fairly safe.I have been
in 4 fender benders and after the fix
it still looks great.Routine mantinace
and it will last forever.
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.
I am thrilled with the fuel economy and
the esay of hauling smaller items
having fold down seats and a hatchback
Looks for starters and a bit more leg
room and head room as I am fairly tall
and found it a bit "stuffy."
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.
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.
Decent gas milage.
fix transmission problems, paint
pealing on top of car.
