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.

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

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.

Good. — average family car with lots of room for carrying large objects. only draw back is it's age now. still doesn't burn oil. gear box is wonderful. not fast but again fast enough. all in all a great car. if only it was newer.

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.

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.

If You're Alentejano (very Calm Person) Buy This Car!... — Slow car but economic. Enough handling and nice driving feel. Despite some plastics, it has strong construction. For the price, the design and looks are ok and it's big enough for the family. If it was today I'd choosed the 1.6L, but only if it was LPG/GPL moved...

Pros

Light and a suprisingly nice drive, just be sure to lower it, otherwise the back end has a tendancy to step out due to the high centre of gravity

Cons

Well this particular car had been neglected, i practically stripped and rebuilt her with a fair bit of welding aswell for good measure

Cheap To Run And Parts Are Widely Available For Peanuts — First car, cheap to run and was great fun to drive and pretty easy to work on, apart from all the rust lol Performance mods are 10 a penny so making one yours is just a question of taste. Mine is now in scrapyard heaven :(

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
