Great Value — Great overall car. I have only had minor issues with it since I bought it in 95. I have put 165000 miles on it and the only wok other than maintenance has been replacing the timing belt. I will buy another ford escort I think in the future.

Overall Good Car — This is a great car for getting around on. The maintenance is very reasonable also. I get great mileage and drive for a weeks on one tank of gas. Ive driven this car on long trips and its very comfortable to drive.

Pros

Great for commuting, low miles.

Cons

It's a 1995 so everything is old.

Perfect From Point A To Point B. — All in all a fantastic car if maintained. Parts are still easy to come by, and the 1.9L 4 cylinder is simple enough to perform most operations in the driveway. My experience with Ford in general taught me that they didn't manufacture any good transmissions, but with such low miles, 52k, I have yet to find any problems.

Pros

Good gas milage, low insurance rate, 5 seater

Cons

Slow, not the best looking

25

Eh... — It's slow and not exactly what you would call a hotrod. On the otherhand, it is a good car if you are looking for something reliable with good gas milage. It isn't a car that you would want to get if you are planning on going racing.

Pros

Excellent simple design, low purchase & repair costs, rear seats fold down easily, plenty of used parts available, great fuel efficiency (29-37 mpg), great visibility in all directions, manual transmission lets me squeeze out power when I need it, great cargo space and room for five passengers. Seating is very comfortable for smaller people like me. I drown in a lot of standard large vehicles that are made to fit large men.

Cons

Often not enough power, rough ride, starting to get rusted out.

I Love My Escort Wagon — I love this car and would be happy to buy another one like it if it was still made today. See my pros and cons for detailed description of my experience driving this car. It is very similar to the Saturn SW line which I have also driven, but is better-designed.

Pros

35 MPG + in the city, 39 MPG on the highway (it's a five speed); roof rack, station wagon.  Not too many frills.

Cons

Who dreamt up a vehicle speed sensor that pours transmission oil into the passenger compartment when it fails?

Suprisingly Great On Gas. — I bought it from a family member who was the first owner. At 130K, and seventeen years of age, it's now going through its change of life. I hear that they can turn out to be fairly durable... but I'm not sure that I have the patience to find out the end of the story.

Pros

Reliable, fun to drive, GREAT GAS MILEAGE!

Cons

Availability of parts, cost of some repairs

1995 Ford Escort — Excellent running car. Over 200,000 miles and counting. It has needed several minor repairs over the past two years but this is to be expected with an older vehicle. It runs very well and gets great gas mileage! Overall it's been a great vehicle and it's reasonably entertaining to drive too!

Pros

5 Speed, lots of cargo room, back seat folds down, good air conditioning.

Cons

88 Hp, no CD, air conditioning shaves 7 mph off top end bringing it to 81, cargo rating of zero.

Liked It. — Great first car, could carry all my stuff or 5 people. Even with a lawn mower engine with the 5 speed I could break the tires loose. Back seat folds down so you can camp out. Great car for rally racing.
