The little car that could! 10 years!
By westcoastcop on


1997 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


Bought it new, put 160,000 miles on it with only an engine mount and electric cooling fan replaced, and several burned out bulbs. Other than that, routine fluid/filter changes, couple of batteries and one tune up plus some tire replacement and brake pads...thats it! Reliable! Never let me down, never stranded me, never disapointed me! Still looks new, red sports model 4 door, I put a cd player in it when my son was starting to drive it.

Best Features

Reliability, still looks new and the car itself looks modern even tho it is 10 model years old now. Plain, simple transportation in the same way the Model T was!

Worst Features

Ford has addressed all of the improvements with the current 08 Focus replacement, and the 09 will be a whole new car.
