Great Bang for the Buck

1995 Ford Escort GT 2dr Hatchback


The Escort has to be one of the most
bulletproof designs Ford ever put on
the road. The GT ups the ante and
makes an econobox into a really fun
package. The interior comfort is
great. My car has over 120,000 on the
odo and I drove it straight from
Florida to Michigan with no
discomfort. Great seats. Some of the
items are indicative of an earlier
mindset (i.e. cupholders that are only
large enough to hold a can), but the
interior is still roomy and
functional. You can't beat a hatchback
for functionality. This thing swallows
just about anything with the seats
folded down.

Best Features

The Mazda 1.8L and Manual Trans can't be beat. This car isn't really that fast, but it always gives the impression that you are going about 10 mph faster than you really are.

Worst Features

Restore features that were standard on prior models - lighted vanity mirrors and trunk/fuel releases on floor. Fortunately, these are easily restored w/junkyard parts. (visor wiring is still in a-pillar behind headliner and routing for remote releases are still under carpet).
