The Best Looking Car Of All Time — The (UK spec) Ford Escort is (in my opinion) 1 of the best looking cars ever and i was fortunate to own the 97 sr model and loved every minute of it i still dream today of owning a cosworth and will get one and restore it to its glory and best with the amazing whale tail

Pros: People loved it so much you can buy them in amazing spec and beutifully looked after

Cons: They stopped making it to make the focus

The Escort — I initially bought this car with the intention of driving it a year or so and trading it for a new(er) car. I ended up driving it five and a half years before the engine blew up in it. It did get good gas mileage, though it was nothing to look at. It broke down once and I thought I would have to trade it then, but was able to fix it and drove it another two years.

Pros: Good gas mileage.

Cons: It was a Ford.

Medium-size Family Car Review ... — Family Car - Need low cost on the road, especially god forbid if anything goes wrong OR in general, annual maintenance, etc ... Keep-up servicing for your Engine, ( its worked for this vehicle ). 4 years ownership, 3 MOTS with any work costing still under £100, ( thats in all this time )! No lie ! I give this car its due; the reliability, fuel economy, annual maintenance, engine performance ... EXCELLENT ...

Pros: Room inside when going on decent weeks holiday; ( 2 Adults, 3 children "A-Class")... Fuel economy...

Cons: I would like this car more as 1.6 - But never mind 1.4 is ok...

Best Car To Have — I love my Escort her name is Blueberry and she has given me some best years. I bought it for my daughter used even though the passenger side window never downed since she has it she has always taken my daughter whereever she needed 2 go. Great paint job excellent on gas, clean as a whistle, neatly kept. my daughter since passed it on to her brother and I think the car hates him. He plays those vulgar rap music and blueberry is not use to it so she makes him spend money in repairs. Ha ha ha

Pros: The best car, gas saver, great mileage, great paint job since purchased, fast and beautiful

Cons: costly needs more parts since my son got it. Yes boys are rough

Don't Bother. — I only owned one of these for nearly 2 years. During that time I must have paid to get something fixed every month. It was costing me an arm and a leg. Brakes didn't work very well. They were too weak. Engine needed throwing away and having something more better built putting inside. It was burning oil before 60k miles. Had engine rebuilt and yet car was still unreliable. Only got rid of it because I crashed it (cos of brakes) and got written off. The only thing I liked about the car was its sporty looks and the performance (when the engine was working fine).

Pros: Good sporty design.  Decent performance.

Cons: Not very reliable.
