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.
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
