A Cheap Good Car — performance: The 1.4i in the mk4 escort for european market. the acceleration is not fast but it goes forward, upphil it lacks power so you have to shift gears down. handling and braking: my car has rs turbo unddercarriage so it sits good on the road and breaks good. Build quality: it is allright not bad but not good. Appearance: standar look with fog light in the bumper Cost of owner ship: no idea it's not wery expensive when it's working 100% Fun factor: wery good car, but new car is better comfort

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: nostagily

Cons: they are often wery rusty

Pros: fun

My First Car — My very first car, so of course I loved it! From memory, it was a red five door 1.3 Popular - not an option given here. Nearly killed myself on a roundabout when the gearbox knackered and went through the steering column a week after I passed my test, but still great. Fairly cheap to run, cost next to nothing to buy, parts were easy to come by so it was quite straightforward getting the many repairs that it needed done. It was an old car when I bought it, so that was to be expected.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Cheap to buy, run and service.

Cons: OLD so lots of repairs needed!

S2 Escort Rs Turbo — This car is a boyhood dream for me, and its lived up to its esteem in my eyes. Being and old car, it will obviously need a bit of work doing to it to get it up to scratch, but in total I think this is a really good car, and is amazing fun to drive when the tubo kicks in. Obviously it drinks petrol like a marathon runner but with the speed of this car, it is a marathon runner.

Pros: Looks, speed and braking

Cons: Handling's a bit funny and its old so all the usual rust bits n bobs

Escort Gt — I will own another Escort GT (86-90). Cheap to insure, easy to maintain, and GREAT on gas. Nice power and performance from a 1.9L 8V I4 engine. Enough to keep a smile on your face while getting 30+ MPG. I kinda wish I would have not sold it to my brother.

Pros: Cheap to fix, insure, and fill the gas tank.

Cons: Nothing another 30 to 50 HP wouldn't cure.

Good Looking Not Refined.... — XR3i Convertible. Unlike the stock photo mine was red. I owned this car for about 2 weeks before i got an offer i couldnt refuse from someone wanting to buy it off me. If i had the chance now i would seriously consider getting one again just basically on its looks although more than likely a younger model - fantastic in the summer when you can put the top down, although im guessing every convertible is! Good looking although unfortunately not refined as the song goes..... acceleration was fab very poweful, braking was a bit sharp in my opinion, awful car over bumps, very squeaky even when not going over bumps although i think that this was mainly due to its age. But overall a fun car to drive.

Pros: Looks fantastic and powerful

Cons: Squeaky
