can't complain
By Ben Smith on


1997 Ford Escort 4dr Sedan


i purchased this car from a family
member with 105k on it. At that time,
the car had never broken down, and ran
like a dream (especially w/105k).
Every 3k, the oil had been changed and
all maintance recommendations were
followed. I would average 28+ MPG,
even while i was driving like an
idiot. After 130k, the transmission
begin slipping quite often and fuel
economy began to fall off quickly. I
can't complain about the cheap parts
and quality when an escort makes it to

Best Features

fuel economy, disposable car to run into the ground, ability to corner quickly, 135k until problems started, always started right up, never broke down

Worst Features

better sound system, more comfortable seats
