Escort Wagon Lx — I like how solidly it is built. I rear-ended an SUV in this car, and it still runs awesome. Spectacular gas mileage and it's a blast to drive. Lots of room in the back for stuff! Get one for yourself!

Pros: It's turquoise!

Cons: It's slooowwww

1994 Ford Escort Wagon — Overall it's not a bad car. We've had the car for 12 years and now it has 106,000 miles. The only thing we ever needed to replace on it was the alternator. Handling is excellent and sporty, but acceleration is terrible especially with the automatic transmission. I wish it had a 5-speed. It gets great gas mileage, sometimes achieving 38mpg on the highway. The interior is nice but the it's pretty loud on the highway. I would recommend this to a friend looking for cheap, reliable transportation.

Pros: Handling, gas mileage, storage, reliability

Cons: Slow, small, loud

Fun To Drive, Great Mpg. — Decent car over all. Good for getting to point A. to Be. Great MPG 32 Highway. Not so great acceleration, good suspension takes it hard around the corners. It has 150,000 miles and runs pretty good, no knocks or squeaks. The body is nothing to go home about, the rear spoiler is just clipped on, so it rattles at high speeds and when it idles.

Pros: good MPG 32 highway.

Cons: not much horse power.

Wykiki The Ii The Escort — First problem was that I couldn't get it out of the parkin lot when I went to pick it up. Then, we constantly had problems with the alternator. The muffler fell off and there was rust galor. The good thing about it was when it was finally okay, it actually drove pretty good. That is, until it got broken into.

Pros: smooth driving, electric seatbelt

Cons: it's old!

My Fix Or Repair Daily — Color: Burgundy Engine: 1.9L 4 cyl Transmission: 5-speed manual Body: Some scratches... it is 15 yrs old. Small dent on fender just in front of front left tire. One small dent on rear passenger door. Powertrain: Water pump replaced about 20,000 miles ago. Cylinder head replaced with remanufactured about 10,000-15,000 miles ago. Clutch replaced 5,000-7,000 miles ago. Brakes and handles well... but not good acceleration.

Pros: Good economy:

• City - 22mpg

• Highway - 30+ mpg

• Combined - 26-28 mpg

Working great currently (for the moment).

Cons: Typically something major goes out every 6-8 months.  On month 8-9 now.  I've had to replace the cylinder head (twice!) and the clutch in two years. Has a coolant problem that can be solved by having heater on low. Just found out that my back drum brakes are about to go out.  Not much pad left.
