Takes a Lickin'
By CA_Kid on


1997 Ford Escort LX 4dr Wagon


Bought new, now have over 100K on it
and it still runs great. Body and paint
job are outstanding and the engine is
extremely durable. Like most 4 cyl.
cars, some power is lost when turning
on the A/C, but it sure comes out cool!
Windshield seems to have a design flaw,
the padding keeps coming out.
Otherwise I couldn't be happier with
this little commuter car.

Best Features

A/C on those hot summer days. Good size cargo space, can hold groceries for a family of seven.

Worst Features

Windshield padding needs to be placed better. Some trouble with keeping the minor electrical running, power locks, running lights, etc.
