It Tried To Kill Me — After owning it for all of a two months, it took me over a cliff. Around six months later I received a recall notice for the part that broke and tried to send me to a flaming death.

Pros: It went down the road

Cons: It went over the cliff

Poor Man's Show-car — Bought this for 1300 quid when it was around 12 years old, with reading of 60K. Everything worked, including the roof! It drove pretty quick and did draw some attention when I sped though town centres with its modified speakers on full volumn. Raised some respect before it was stolen literally right in front of my eyes (I was on the first floor though...)

Pros: Good noise!

Cons: As with most convertibles... the bloody leaking roof... And it was in the rainy Wales...

White, 1.6 Litre Engine — EXTERIOR The basic model Ford is mainly driven by people who just sit all day turning slowly into beige. That's because it's the last car to turn any heads. The faster RS model actually looked pretty good because of the flashy facelift. If a young bloke wanted a sleek looking escort, he had two options: buying the RS, or fitting the basic model with the same bodykit (all show and no go, that is) My Escort modifications: -RS Bodykit -Turbo air vents -Racing exhaust -Sport suspension INTERIOR Well, there isn't any. But there are plenty of aftermarket steering wheels, gear knobs, pedals and seats that suit perfectly the escort's sporty exterior. SAFETY None:) ECONOMY Insuring is cheap, but fuel economy is terrible, 26 miles to the gallon. That's in the same category with Porsche Boxter!!

Pros: Cheap to insure, reliable, reasonably lightweighted thus good handling (also because of the sporty suspension) and suspiciously good acceleration from 0 to 60mph, CD-player

Cons: Fuel gauge is no good. Fuel consumption, not good. Terribly hard suspension (modified), crappy windshield washer, central locking fights back, bad habit of catching rust, boot seems to leak, audio system(no bass unit, front speakers are no good)
