Very practical car for cost
By Chris Hadley on


1999 Ford Escort LX 4dr Sedan


I bought this car over 2 years ago
now. The only problem is the engine
developed a shimmy around the 45,000
mile mark. I
took it to the dealership and they
gave me some crap about tubing or
something. It cost me $95 but it
fixed the only problem. I got into an
accident where I was struck sideways
in the back and I walked away and the
car was able to be fixed. I was hit
by a VERY large truck so I was
impressed by the build quality. The
car is a smooth ride and peppy for a 4
cyl. engine. I have put well over
7,500 interstate miles on this car in
the last year. GREAT CAR!

Best Features

My model really has no features. The AC and heat get cold and hot very very quickly tho, which is nice when it is either really hot or really cold. Automatic trans is smooth as well and the gas mileage is great! (9 gals takes me from Indianapolis, IN to Valparaiso, IN and back)

Worst Features

VERY very noisy engine on interstate. I keep the radio at 21 out of 30 in order to block the noise. Needs better engine insulation to block noise.
