1997 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


My '97 just got a new clutch, just before that a new serpentine belt. Other than those recent jobs only brakes, tires and oil changes and it's
still getting me to work every day at 32 mpg.
For a cheap little car the quality has been surprisingly good, even great.

Best Features

Fun to drive, great gas mileage, easy to park and very small turn radius.

Worst Features

OK, so it's a little cramped inside if you are close to 6 feet but it is after all a small car. I wish they'd make those clear polycarbonate headlight covers last longer without getting so foggy looking.
