Love this car!
This car has been and continues to be fun, affordable, dependable and holds it's style - even after ten years. The gas mileage is excellent, trunk space is great - I really have nothing bad to say - I wish Ford was still making this kind of a fun and stylish car in this range.
Late 90' escorts
The late 90's Ford Escorts were a 3rd generation vehicle that had proven themselves on the road as being durable and dependable. Numerous escorts have gone over 200K miles with little or no major repair/replacement. Ford is notorious for torturing the drivetrains in their vehicles and the escort is no exception. There are some things to be aware of. The front disc brake pads are thin, thus in daily driving conditions you can expect to replace those pads every few months. Along with those pads you'll want to replace the pins that the pads slide on since they will begin to loose their coatings and rust, causing the pads to stick. The suspension in these vehicles is soft and can easily bottom out if you pack 5 friends and alot of gear in the trunk. While the drivetrain is nearly bulletproof, it needs to be understood that these vehicles were never designed for towing anything more than a trailer full of leaves. With the number of escorts out there and a long service life, these cars are cheap to own and repair. Taken care of, they will easily last another 10 years.
A good car
Our Escort Wagon was a good solid car. It had been in many car crash and survived most. Never had any problems
