Hate Fords?
By TAllen on


1996 Ford Escort LX 2dr Hatchback


I vowed never to own another Ford after owning a Tempo. HA! Bought this Escort because of its style and drive. Only had 100,000 miles when bought at 9 years old. The only major problem was I had to replace the harmonic balancer because it threw the timing off and made the car literally not want to move. Got it fixed and that 1.9L gets up and goes. Gets great gas mileage. And roomy for a small compact car. This was a good pick from someone who hates Fords. This one has helped change my mind although my wife still says CHEVY!

Best Features

Economic. Gas mileage and just enough room for me.

Worst Features

Lose the auto seat belts and put real cup holders in it ... not ones just for looks.
