1995 Ford Escort 2dr Hatchback


Review

I bought this car when I was in college. It was a Salvaged Title with only 3K miles on it. I drove it till a couple of years ago and donated it with 245K miles. NEVER HAD ANY DRIVETRAIN ISSUES! Barely changed oil every 15K miles, only problem I ever had was the alternator went bad, which I changed myself/ NO OTHER PROBLEMS. What a great car. Now I'm looking to buy another because of its reliability (for commute).


Best Features

Reliability. gas mileage, and cheap cost of maintenance. What an indestructible car. I abused it every which way I could, and it still lasted.


Worst Features

You get what you pay for. I now own a BMW 540, so I wouldnt expect any comfort near what the Beamer has. But I was FULLY SATISFIED with what I paid for and the completely unexpected reliability that I got out of it.

1995 Ford Escort GT 2dr Hatchback


Review

My Escort GT has been an excellent car for nearly ten years. It is fun to drive plus I can throw just about anything in the back. I feel it's as functional as an SUV but much more fun to drive.

1995 Ford Escort LX 2dr Hatchback


Review

Always started, nothing in the
drivetrain ever broke in the 15 months I
owned it. Cargo space and flexibility
sold me on the hatchback design for
future cars. Great milage.

Bad points: Noisey, bad sound system,
very uncomfortable for longer (30
minutes) trips. Lots of interior
features were broken: auto-seatbelts,
hi-beam switch, rear defrost button
(fell into dash), thermostat etc...

Ford seemed to put a lot of effort into
building a reliable, low maintenance
drivetrain in the Escort this year but
really cheaped out on the interior bits
and driver comfort features. It never
ceased to remind me that I was driving
an economy car.


Best Features

Gas milage, reliability, cargo space.


Worst Features

Better build quality, better sound system, more comfortable seats, more focus on interior bits so the driver isn't constantly reminded that their in an econobox.

1995 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


Review

When I had just turned 16 I asked dad
for help getting a car. He didn't tell
me but went out and bought a 95 escort
that was a company car and had 153000
miles on it. To top it off it was
purple. I wasn't crazy about the color
but i was glad to have my own wheels. I
no longer have this car because it
finally died, but i can't complain since
it had over 200,000 miles on it, not
sure of actual milage because odometer
broke and i have to get a new one that
read 100k less than what i had on it.
great car, few problems , inner tie
rods. brakes!


Best Features

pick up with 5speed


Worst Features

brakes went waaaaaaay too fast, i'm not a crazy driver either.
