First Car Is Always Best!!!
By leia on


1997 Ford Escort 4dr Sedan


Got this as my first car. I purchased it with 81,000 miles and 6 years old for $1200!!! A steal!!! The only things it has ever needed is basic wear and tear items. 175,000 miles now and the water pump and timing are still original. Still run conventional oil with no leaks. AT does not slip and has no leaks as well! This has been my greatest purchase ever!! I wish Ford would make another one. I would buy another one in a heartbeat!!!

Best Features

Manual everything except trans. Great for first time drivers!!!

Worst Features

Make cup holders deeper so carpet doesn't get ruined and a little more leg room in the back seats.
