Good Car And Worked Good For Me. — My Escort was the 1.6l engine with the automatic transmission,good power and due to a broken exhaust good sound too haha.A good beginner car that doesnt cost much to maintain and gets decent gas mileage! There is really nothing exiting bout this car but it does have a certain charm in My opinion.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap and good

Cons: The road handling at some times.

Great Car For Those, Who Have Nothing Else To Do. — It accelerates great and brakes are also good, but with larger steering wheel it is hard to remain on tracks, so that you wont be eating dust but you might be eating mud. Its exterior is pretty good but interior should have better materials used in.

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

Pros: strong chassis, foolsproof

Cons: ugly side mirrors

Ugly — Ugly car. Bought it for $75. 51,022 miles. Not fun to drive. Gutless engine. Hard to get above 50 mph. Clean interior. Little rust on it. Crap radio and exterior. One owner. A very old lady bought it brand new in 1984.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: None

Cons: Ugly

Roomy, Had A Good Radio And A/c But An Overall Dog. — This car was the worst new car I ever owned, within a month of receiving it the roof paint faded (due to a surreptitious repaint by the dealer I now know). It had the upgraded engine 1.6 liters, but even so configured it could hardly get out of it's own way or anyone else's for that matter. On the plus side the a/c always worked well and the radio sounded better than could be expected. Also the seating was comfortable and not really cramped.

Pros: A/C; Radio; Seating

Cons: Underpowered, bad paint; bad fit and finish
