Review

This is my second Escort. I purchased my first 98 escort new and drove it to well over 300k miles. It was sadly taken out by a tractor trailer while parked, but was still running strong. I am on my second 98 escort (took me months to find one) and it's also great. Purchased it with 108k and have taken it all over the country since. Just like my first escort, this one just keeps going and going. I like dependability and economy in my vehicles and this car serves them both up with a smile.

Review

After having this car for a couple of years, we decided she deserved a name, Loretta.
We bought her when she was already 12 years old but she only had 63,000 miles on her.
Now she's got almost 150,000 and still going strong.
The fuel pump has been replaced and a couple of other things, but she's never left me stranded.
All of those were things that I needed to do, but she gave me the time to save the money and never quit on me.
We love this car.
She is now being passed down to my daughter who loves her just as much as I do.


Best Features

She gets good mileage and never quits. Just goes and goes.


Worst Features

Could have a little more get up and go and the ac doesn't work, but she's older than dirt.

Review

One of Ford's best for basic trasportation.
Purch from original owner with 111k mi after sitting in yard for 2yr. Have driven it 65k miles since. Never left me stranded, only normal maint. items; i.e. timing belt, brakes, tires, muffler. New England winters & excessive road salt have taken a toll on the body.
Engine still runs strong and uses less that 1qt. of oil per 2k miles.


Best Features

Shifts well. Good gas mileage. Great for basic transport.


Worst Features

more sound dampening. If body was in good shape I would Dynamat the whole interior and maybe a Corbeau driver seat. Stock seats are less than adequate for my 6'2" frame and a 38 mile commute.
