Great Car For the Money

1996 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


Bought this car in Aug. of '05. So far it has been a good investment since it has taken me back and forth from work and school with little complaint. It is definitely a good car to have with the uncertain gas prices although the engine could use more power. The only major problem I had with this car is the heater core and the AC still doesn't work but I consider this pretty good for an almost 10 year old car. Overall I'm satisfied with my Escort and would definitely buy one again.

Best Features

Handling, keyless entry, alloys and spoiler, fuel economy.

Worst Features

A more powerful motor option for all models not just in GT. Better quality door panels. One map pocket fell off and the other is getting there. No junky power seatbelts.
