A fun car with reliability
By BTA on


1997 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


Our second car. Fuel efficient and
low cost to maintain. Our first Ford
and a pleasant surprise. Don't put
many miles on it. Reminds me of our
dog; always starts up immediately and
is ready to go when we are. Used much
to drive and leave at airport, and we
know that it will start in all weather
to get us home.

Best Features

Reliability; first and foremost. And it is a pretty car. The fold down rear seats enable us to carry more odd- shaped items than a sedan, and they are easily accessible.

Worst Features

For some reason, the check engine light has been on for 4 years. Mechanics have found no reason for that nor a way to turn it off without disabling it. Other than this, maybe some more power without sacrificing economy....
