2002 Escort Owner Reviews (2)
My '95 Escort wagon is nearing the 200k mi. mark, it's original engine still strong and clean. The 1.9l/5speed stick wagon consistently gets 35-40 mpg. in all-round driving. Replacement Parts for this vintage are plentiful/cheap, allowing me to affordably maintain the car myself. Fairly simple car to work on. Avoid the automatic transmission models. The wagon body lets me carry a lot with me. Handles well and keeps up with most traffic just fine. Has air bags and my auto insurance is very affordable. Negatives? Road noise, Quirky seat belts, Heats up in stop and go traffic jams, Limited weight carrying capacity.
Was A Good, Loyal, Reliable Car

My 1995 Ford Escort was a car like no other, I thought it was a piece of junk when I first starting driving it four years (previously driven by my mother). However, I was proven wrong however by the *************. It never let me down not once. I drove that car with no battery charge in it once, however it died once I got to my destination. I didn't care by that point though. I've driven it with no oil in it and It ran perfectly fine until I traded it in. I can safely say that this car is a car like no other. I always got me to where I wanted to go no matter what, and it is very easy to drive and shift. Mine was a manual transmission. Anybody who has this car is very lucky.
