Not to shabby for a compact
By ChevyMan on


1995 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


I am only 16 and this is my first car.
Dad bought it because it was $300
expecting to do hardly
anything to it but someone street raced
it and it was stolen therefore we had
to buy a new clutch, ignition, door
lock, spark plugs, tires and speed
sensor(thanks to potholes in west
virginia that busted both front tires
and sensor). It had pretty much brand
new brakes on it but they must be
cheap because I have hit them hard a
few times and they just dont grap hard
enough but the pedal is nice and stiff.
It can handle like a dream since the
guy upgraded the struts and it can do
60mph on a 25mph rated on ramp(thats
the fastest i have tried). 32-45mpg

Best Features

Great handling(upgrade struts all around which are koni), gas mileage 32- 45mpg, the boxie look of it, 2 and 3 gear feel very good, does well in high rev to get up to 75mph for highway pretty good

Worst Features

remove gas mileage to add power(88 hp just dont do it nore does the 108 ft/lbs torque),have to roll gear box geared too low in 1 gear and a bit too high in 4 and 5 gear, blows around way too easily in wind, clutch pedal too soft
